Safety Net Clinic and Hospital User Group Forms to Collaborate on 340B Drug Program Best Practices and Transparency Initiatives
Date:7/23/2013

WASHINGTON, July 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Medicine Access and Compliance Coalition (MACC) was formed in the District of Columbia as a not-for-profit organization, with its newly elected Board of Directors convening.  MACC is the first and single largest 340B drug program user group of its kind to voluntarily submit to self-examination through peer and industry review, and to seek constructive input from drug manufacturers, legislators and other advocacy groups to produce and promote recommended best practices.  MACC also has the distinction of being one of the first groups with joint Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) and hospital leadership.

MACC shall represent safety net clinics and hospitals that use the 340B drug program compliance technology platform called CUMULUS™, a CaptureRx® solution.  The user group consists of over 1,500 covered entity site locations, operating in 41 States and managing over 4.3 million patient lives with 14 million outpatient medical encounters annually.

MACC core initiatives shall:  1) create standards and practices with oversight and third party audit activities to assure compliance, transparency and stewardship of the 340B pharmacy medicine discount program; 2) promote and deploy medicine therapies, adherence and education programs to the most vulnerable patient populations mostly served by safety-net providers; and  3) assist in defining policy and advocating for medicine access through open dialogue with industry stakeholders, regulators and legislators.

Critical to the success of MACC and consensus building  is the development of the Standards Review Board (SRB).  The SRB, which will be appointed by the MACC Board of Directors, shall include drug manufacturers, pharmacy providers, pharmacy benefits managers, and other advocacy groups that are impacted by the 340B drug program.  The SRB will help
