How emc market access supports Pharma

A smart submission tool for your product information

It is essential to list your products on the dm+d database to ensure they are prescribed and dispensed by the NHS via the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS). 

The dm+d submission tool is trusted by leading organisations for submitting and updating products to this database, as well as offering audit & tracking capabilities.


Supply chain Product Information Management (PIM) platform

It is crucial to share product information with stakeholders such as wholesalers and the NHS, but also to do this safely and efficiently.

emc market access's supply chain platform streamlines your internal processes, enabling cross-team collaboration and a sustainable way to manage this information throughout the supply chain.

The supply chain platform also ensures you have a safe way to share this information, minimising the cyber security risks which come with sharing information over channels such as email. 


Browse the dm+d and supply chain databases

Pharma needs to understand and look up the NHS dm+d database to ensure products are listed correctly and also to gain competitor intelligence, such as changes in pricing. It is also important to use a single source of truth for sharing comprehensive product information with other stakeholders throughout the supply chain.

The emc market access solution (emc med data) includes an intuitive browser to simplify these tasks and track products or suppliers of interest on the dm+d database and emc supply chain database.

It is the most efficient method for submitting new and updated product information.

Simplifying medicine information management and distribution

The supply chain submission platform provides Pharma with a Product Information Management (PIM) solution for a single source of truth for all product information requirements. It allows Pharma to centralise, manage, standardise, enrich, and efficiently distribute its product information to important internal and external stakeholders.

How does the supply chain submission platform work?

When creating a new product pack in the supply chain platform, you can input up to 70 attributes per pack, such as industry-specific codes, storage information and product pricing:

  1. Pharma enters product pack information into the submission tool

  2. The platform enriches and standardises product information, including data from emc and the dm+d databases

  3. Stakeholders access the product information via emc med data, an automated API or Pharma can extract a file and send via email

An efficient way to access the NHS dm+d and the supply chain databases

The browser component of emc market access gives users access to the dm+d database, allowing a fast and effective way to check product price, availability, medicine, and devices information. Users can also access Pharma product information submitted through the supply chain platform.
