Valerie Jensen: FDA Releases Mobile Tool to Deliver Drug Supply Chain Reports

FDA logoThe U.S. Food and Drug Administration has rolled out a new mobile application designed to inform the general public about essential medicines in short supply.

FDA said Wednesday it built the tool for consumers to report drug supply problems and be aware of drug products that have been withdrawn from the market.

“The FDA understands that healthcare professionals and pharmacists need real-time information about drug shortages to make treatment decisions,” said Valerie Jensen, associate director of the drug shortage staff at the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research.

Android and iOS mobile users can download the app for free and search for medications according to therapeutic class or generic name.
