HealthTrust presents…”Drug Supply Chain Security: What You Need to Know Today & How to Be Prepared For The Future”

The Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) is an FDA regulation passed in 2013 and is designed to act as a shield to protect patients from counterfeit and illegitimate drug products.  DSCSA’s implementation is a stepwise program that will lead to a fully interoperable drug supply chain in 2023.  This presentation provides an overview of current regulatory requirements and the impact of future changes to the drug supply chain that will affect clinical and revenue cycle operations.  Attendees of this session will gain an in-depth understanding of how product identification (labeling) and data interoperability innovations will be utilized to not only secure the drug supply chain but also act as a gateway to more efficient operations.

Learning Objectives for pharmacists and supply chain professionals  |  At the end of this session, participants should be able to:

  1. State the current and future requirements for pharmacy under the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA)
  2. Describe current and future pharmaceutical labeling evolution and supply chain innovations and challenges
  3. Recall current enforcement initiatives, risks and impact of noncompliance.

Learning Objectives for pharmacist technicians |  At the end of this session, participants should be able to:

  1. Recall the evolving timeline and impact of DSCSA in pharmacy
  2. Identify new opportunities for supply chain transparency beyond simple compliance
