New Email Drug Alerts for Physicians

The new Health Care Notification Network (“HCNN”) has started sending drug alerts to physicians via email, replacing traditional mail delivery of urgent drug warning and recall letters.  The network’s first alert centered on a widely manufactured and commonly used class of antibiotics and was sent immediately via the HCNN to health care providers.  The HCNN is a free service offered to all licensed U.S. physicians and their staff is used solely for FDA-mandated Patient Safety Alerts.  It is not used for advertising or marketing. Physicians and health care providers can register to receive electronic alerts at or through participating medical societies and other HCNN partners.
