Since the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) law went into effect on November 27, 2013, much has been written about the law and its implications to various stakeholders in the US drug supply chain. Unfortunately, there are relatively few independent resources available for dispensers (specifically pharmacies) to reference when trying to understand the requirements and implications of the law. The purpose of this presentation is two-fold: 1) to provide dispensers with the information needed to implement a DSCSA compliant process, and 2) to share insights and lessons learned from one health system’s journey toward DSCSA compliance.
1. Describe the dispenser requirements under DSCSA.
2. Outline the FDA’s DSCSA implementation milestones.
3. State the critical importance of maintaining accurate DSCSA data.
