Edge Dynamics and Pembroke Consulting Host Webcast on Secure Commerce Practices for Today's Pharmaceutical Channel

PHILADELPHIA, June 22 /PRNewswire/ -- As announced during last week's Healthcare Distribution Management Association (HDMA) conference in Orlando, Edge Dynamics and Pembroke Consulting will host a webcast titled "Secure Commerce Practices for Today's Pharmaceutical Channel." The webcast will be held Wednesday, July 13, 2005, from noon to 1 p.m. Eastern.

Pembroke Consulting President Adam J. Fein, Ph.D., a renowned pharmaceutical channels expert, and John McGrory, CEO of Edge Dynamics, the leading provider of Commerce Optimization solutions for the pharmaceutical industry, will present a compelling analysis of the current U.S. drug distribution channel and discuss future trends. They will also supply a framework to help drugmakers protect patients and gain greater transparency, accountability and control of their distribution channels.

Recent events ranging from counterfeit products and secondary market activity to pricing and inventory management abuses have brought channel control issues to the forefront in the minds of senior pharmaceutical executives, causing them to take action to ensure public safety and business integrity.

"Drugs are dispensed to patients at over 140,000 locations in the U.S. The pharmaceutical industry should adopt secure commerce practices based on technology available today. New track-and-trace technologies, such as RFID, will not be pervasive in this complex dispensing network for several years," said Pembroke Consulting President Adam J. Fein, Ph.D. "Careful analysis of existing trading relationships provides a bridge between today's needs and the promise of future technologies."

"The pharmaceutical industry must act now to secure the distribution channel and protect patients," said Edge Dynamics CEO John McGrory. "Edge Dynamics provides drug manufacturers with the software tools to improve transparency, ensure accountability, and gain control of their product inventories."

Edge Dynamics software automatically analyzes real-time transaction data, allowing pharmaceutical manufacturers to identify and correct undesired channel activity such as diversion, secondary market activity, excessive inventory, and other product or financial abuses.
