As dispensers of prescription drugs, customers are required to adhere to strict guidelines for accepting ownership and keeping records of those products:
- trade only with authorized trading partners
- have processes in place to identify suspect and illegitimate product
- only accept ownership of a prescription drug if the previous owner provides transaction data
- maintain transaction data for six years and be able to provide it upon request from the FDA or other federal or state official in the event of a recall or investigation
Cardinal Health looks forward to offering solutions so customers can stay focused on their number one priority of serving their own customers. Transaction data for the eligible prescription drugs purchased from Cardinal Health is available online. Our customers may also enter into an agreement for Cardinal Health to maintain the transaction data on their behalf.
