ezGreen Goes Beyond Cannabis Compliance
ezGreen’s Point-of-Sale solutions now sanctioned by Metrc Cannabis Control Commissions in Six States
Fort Lauderdale, FL.– June 4, 2019 /AxisWire/ The ezGreen Compliance team has 17 years of experience in medical dispensing of pharmaceuticals to medical clinics across the United States. This first-hand knowledge of heavily regulated health industries and HIPAA compliance is an essential element to developing a comprehensive software platform for the nascent cannabis industry – the fastest growing industry in the United States –one that is expected to reach $17 billion worldwide in 2019.
In the last two years, ezGreen Compliance (“ezGreen”) has developed a software system with multiple features, many of which have been missing from other industry platforms due to data breaches and shutdowns. Creators of the ezGreen platform have just announced the completed integration with Marijuana Tracking Reporting Enforcement Compliance (“Metrc”) for six states-California, Colorado, Maryland, Massachusetts, Montana, and Oregon. Mandatory for all cannabis-legal states, compliance software is an important choice for cannabis businesses.
Currently, the number of those in the legal cannabis industry participating in a “track-and-trace” computer system is low, reasons cited include bureaucracy and timing. Michael R Blood of the Associated Pressreported that as of April 2019, just nine California retail outlets were entering data into the network established under an estimated $60 million state contract, even though 627 shops are licensed to sell pot in California.
Tracking products in real time, ezGreen is able to monitor the movements of products within the dispensary retail location to ensure they are reporting up to date inventory to the State through the Metrc portal. ezGreen’s Point-of-Sale software eliminates the need for manual data entry when reporting information to Metrc. As retailers or dispensaries accept inbound product information on their Metrc portal, ezGreen receives chain of custody for all products delivered from the distributor to the retail dispensary, automatically batching and labeling every product prior to sale. The platform also integrates the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) certified POS solution developed and supported by Automated HealthCare Solutions (AHCS). AHCS is a leading point-of-care tracking and dispensing software solution developed over the past 17 years which has supported over 3500 active physician operated clinics and dispensaries, all while maintaining HIPAA compliance following essential Health and Human Services standards in the United States.
To remain compliant, licensees must migrate their current inventory to the platform, enabling the tracking and reporting of cannabis and cannabis-related products as they move through the commercial supply chain. ezGreen’s POS software supports and simplifies the maintenance and security of accurate reporting, inventory tracking, as well as product trends, and purchase amounts–which in some states are restricted. The ezGreen Compliance platform also tracks taxes and regulations, keeping licensees up to date on changes at the local, state and national levels.
“Cannabis industry data standards are increasingly mirroring the pharmaceutical industry’s patient data security protocols,” said Mike Coner, President of ezGreen. “We are on top of that and more. Our POS solution delivers data security and integrates with any seed to sale technology platform. ezGreen also provides fully customized reporting and real-time data analytics enabling businesses to make more effective decisions for their customers. In addition to our recent integration with Metrc, we are now able to provide patient and customer data protection within a state-approved end to end solution.”
Metrc was created by Franwell, a leading technology company dedicated to the development of leading products and services focused on supply chain solutions and RFID integration for the Agriculture industry. First deployed for the Cannabis industry in 2013, Metrc is a web-based solution made up of a browser interface and a mobile application for both the industry and regulatory users that provides end to end tracking and tracing of marijuana plants and products. The backend is a series of secure Web Services, Database and an Application Programming Interface (API). This solution was specifically designed for government agencies in charge of legalized marijuana enforcement. Metrc provides the necessary visibility for adherence to rules, regulations, and statutes. Currently, Metrc is contracted by the following states, Alaska, California, Colorado, Oregon, Maryland, Michigan, Ohio, Massachusetts, Montana, Nevada, Louisiana, and Washington D.C.
