The FDA Drug Shortage Task Force’s report analyzing the causes and solutions of drug shortages offer a number of sound proposals that closely align with Premier’s recommendations. No organization has done more than Premier to eliminate drug shortages and create a healthy marketplace. It is in our economic interest to have every product possible on contract and available at competitive prices. This year alone, Premier has brought 15 shortage drugs to market, which is on top of more than 100 products that are on the shortage list.
