Slingshot’s inventory management module now records and distributes drug pedigree information in compliance with the Drug Supply Chain Security Acts (DSCSA).  A Transaction statement with the seven required DSCSA assertions and Transaction history Information documenting changes in ownership is captured for each lot received.  The review and acceptance of pedigree information is required before finalizing a receipt.
