NCPA Testifies Before California Board of Pharmacy on E-Pedigree
Date:12/5/2007

tain multiple track and trace technologies--readers, scanners, software and the like. The cost of E-pedigree regulation is substantial for community pharmacy and must be compensated. The costs to a retail pharmacy have been estimated at anywhere from $10,000 to $40,000 per location. Chain pharmacies have stated that once the plans of upstream trading partners are known, it will take an additional 15 -18 months to implement E-pedigree. For the small businesses in the independent pharmacy sector lacking the resources of larger chains, the consequences will be even worse." The state has created an unfunded mandate by failing to have any mechanisms to help offset the cost to pharmacies.

In California, NCPA represents 2,215 community pharmacies with over 30,000 employees--a substantial portion of the California retail pharmacy marketplace. The proposed changes will enable the transition to E-pedigree to be efficient and effective, ultimately benefitting public safety.
