ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Nov. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Baxa Corporation has teamed up with industry leaders ClinicalIQ, LLC and Pharmacy OneSource, Inc. to convey a complete compliance solution for the latest updates in United States Pharmacopeia (USP) < 797 > regulations.

Each company focuses on one of the three regulatory requirements of USP < 797 >: personnel training, facility design and quality documentation.
