The medical device and drug recall process in the US is inefficient both for suppliers and providers. It is based on methods and guidelines established in the 70's, and has not evolved to take advantage of modern technologies.
With paper-based communications, and targeting every ship-to location at providers, recalls for widely distributed products translate into millions of dollars in cost for suppliers and thousands of hours of effort for providers. This results in a process that is not quick to guarantee a recalled product does not reach a patient.
NotiSphere is born with the idea of addressing all the current challenges by making the process easier for all users involved and speeding up the entire communication cycle, shortening the time it takes to make sure no recalled item reaches a patient. This increases patient safety, takes millions of dollars in cost out of Healthcare, and ensures providers can dedicate less time to managing recalls and more time to care for patients.
