Novation Commends the White House for Its Support and Advancement of Solutions for American Hospitals' Drug Shortage Crisis
Date:11/2/2011

IRVING, Texas, Nov. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Novation commends the White House for raising awareness of the drug shortage crisis facing America's hospitals through its October 31st Executive Order.  

The Order, along with the announced support of the bipartisan legislation – (S. 296 and H.R. 2245) – currently pending in Congress, should begin to establish a framework by which the quality and resiliency of the pharmaceutical supply chain can be improved.  The Order is especially important in that it calls upon both the manufacturer community and the Food and Drug Administration itself to take steps to improve the current emergency situation through improved reporting of potential shortages and well as implementation of expedited regulatory review where possible.  

The drug shortages facing America's hospitals remain at critical levels and continue to impact both patients and providers.  Cooperation throughout the industry is necessary to improve this situation, and measures such as the President's Order and the proposed legislation will help alleviate the problem.

Novation is committed to continue working closely with the FDA, drug manufacturers, and other GPOs to help hospitals access necessary pharmaceuticals.
