340B Report Publisher and CEO Slafsky: 340B Contract Pharmacy Program Has Fractured Into 17 Pieces

“The 340B contract pharmacy program has seemingly fractured into 17 programs, one governed by the federal government and 16 others with their own standards determined by pharmaceutical manufacturers,” 340B Publisher and CEO Ted Slafsky observes in his latest column for Omnicell.

For safety-net healthcare providers, “it means more paperwork, more time figuring out how to help patients access affordable medications, more worries about compliance and less time focusing on patient care,” he says.
