Drug Shortages
The Pharmaceutic Labs CGMP outsourcing facility will dedicate its resources to helping alleviate ongoing drug shortages. In 2011, there were over 251 drugs facing some type of supply issue. Our mission is to help solve the problem with our outsourcing facility (503b) so patients can receive their drugs in a timely manner. Experts agree, “Drug shortages continue to adversely impact drug therapy, compromise or delay medical procedures and result in medication errors. Drug product shortages adversely affect health-system finances by increasing the cost of delivering patient care, largely through high drug acquisition and personnel costs. In addition, shortages create a high level of frustration for every one involved, including purchasing agents, pharmacist, nurses, physician, and patients. Managing drug product shortages is particularly complex for practitioners in hospitals and health systems.” Pharmaceutic Labs steady supply of highly demanded products eases the ongoing threat of drug shortages.
