Good Stewardship Principles Aim to Strengthen 340B Program – APhA submits compounding comments to FDA. – (866) 348-2889.
The American Hospital Association (AHA) and individual hospitals have initiated new principles for ensuring good stewardship of the 340B drug program. The goals are to ensure that the 340B program increases transparency, and assists participating hospitals in better communicating the program’s value for vulnerable patients and communities.1
“The 340B stewardship principles will help hospitals better tell their story of how this crucial program is delivering a variety of important benefits to patients and communities,” said Rick Pollack, president and CEO of the AHA, in a prepared statement.1 “In an era of skyrocketing drug prices, 340B has been critical in helping hospitals expand access to comprehensive health services, including lifesaving prescription drugs.”
