Tatmeen, which provides modern electronic tracking services for medicines and medical products, has been developed in partnership with a number of major technological entities to enhance the reliability of the supply chains of pharmaceutical products.

Since its operational launch in 2020, the platform has tracked and traced 1.2 million drug packages across the UAE.

The platform has also provided training to 1,200 individuals, with a total of 250 training hours completed over the past two years. Additionally, Tatmeen has 1,760 partners ready to collaborate and utilise its benefits.

Strengthening drug control

The platform enhances control over all medicines circulating in the country, by creating a seamless electronic network connecting federal and local authorities, factories, distributors, pharmacies, and consumers. This allows for vigilant monitoring and tracking of pharmaceuticals, in line with national health plans for building a world-class drug security system.

Digital transformation in health services

Ahmed Ali Al Dashti, the Assistant Undersecretary for the Support Services Sector, said that the platform is in line with the government’s directives to digitise vital services and improve the quality and speed of service provision.

He added that the platform offers comprehensive health and drug services to the public and enables the tracking of drug products through the entire supply chain on a single digital platform. This, he said, will benefit society by making health and drug services provided more accessible and efficient.

The platform adheres to GS1 digital sequencing standards, imparting greater transparency in the pharmaceutical industry.

Tatmeen tracks every step of a pharmaceutical product’s journey, from its origin to its expiration date, simply by scanning a serial number. This joint digital platform is accessible through its website or smart app, offering convenience and transparency in the pharmaceutical industry.
