Project Title: Cross-boundary Blockchain for Pharmaceutical Logistics Information Management
Hosting Institution: LSCM R&D Centre (LSCM)
Abstract: In November 2019, Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam announced 16 measures
benefiting Hong Kong people after attending the meeting of the Leading Group for the
Development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area. The measures
include allowing the use of Hong Kong-registered pharmaceuticals and common medical
devices in designated Hong Kong-owned healthcare institutions in the Greater Bay Area.
In response to this policy, this project is to tackle issues arose in the circulation, such as
standard compatibility, privacy protection, cross-boundary data sharing, data
coordination. This project will research and develop a Cross-boundary Track & Trace
Platform for Pharmaceutical Supply Chain based on Consortium Blockchain, and a
Pharmaceutical Approval Management Platform based on Domestic Blockchain.
There are 3 goals for this project: (1) to establish a secure and efficient channel for data
exchange; (2) to provide a one-stop cross-boundary pharmaceutical circulation &
regulation platform facilitating HK/GBA pharma distributors, hospitals in GBA, as well as
regulatory authorities in both Mainland China and Hong Kong; (3) to achieve standard
compatibility, trackability and traceability.
