Navigating DSCSA Compliance: Finding the Right Partner

As you might have heard, there’s been a slight change of plans in the world of DSCSA compliance. On August 30, the FDA announced a “1-year stabilization period […] to adhere to DSCSA requirements.” While that sounds like a one-year delay, the FDA’s announcement is anything but. DSCSA requirements are still set to change on November 27, 2023. As we established in our previous blog about DSCSA compliance, the compliance process is full of growing pains. Nevertheless, moving forward is the name of the game here — and we’ve got you covered. Read on to learn why having a compliance partner could be the way to go for your pharmacy.

The Current State of DSCSA Compliance 

As it stands, the DSCSA compliance deadline is still on November 27, 2023. With the FDA’s announcement this past August, the big potential misnomer is that the compliance deadline is postponed for a whole year.

The stabilization period is exactly what it sounds like: a period for pharmacies to stabilize their updated workflows and ensure they remain DSCSA compliant.

Simply put, your pharmacy needs to be DSCSA compliant by November 27, 2023 — a little over a month from the time of writing.

What to Look for In a Compliance Partner 

So now you’re looking for a compliance partner. Becoming DSCSA compliant can be a long and difficult process, so finding a great compliance partner is essential.

The main thing to consider when choosing a compliance partner is to assess how they will affect your workflow. Each independent pharmacy has its own, one-of-a-kind workflow that is tailored to the needs of its respective community.

As such, becoming DSCSA compliant can be seen as a monkey wrench to your pharmacy’s workflow.

Choose a compliance partner that helps you keep your workflow intact. There will inevitably be changes to ensure DSCSA compliance but your pharmacy should operate as efficiently as before.

Cost plays an important role when finding a compliance partner. As mentioned earlier, finding the right compliance partner can save your pharmacy time and money.

Specifically, your compliance partner can do all the compliance heavy lifting while you tend to your patients. As a result, neither your workflow nor level of compliance are neglected. Your pharmacy can then use that time to focus on the task at hand, whether that’s in the form of vaccines, clinical services, or in-depth patient consultations.

Most of all, the right compliance partner assures that your pharmacy is and continues to be DSCSA compliant. How long you want to be contracted with your compliance partner is up to you. What matters is your pharmacy continues to remain DSCSA compliant.

Now that you know what to look for in a compliance partner, it’s time to choose one. Luckily, RedSail Technologies has partnered with two brilliant partners.
