I want to thank everyone for reading and commenting on RxTrace in 2010 and wish you all HAPPY HOLIDAYS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR. Due to our family party schedule I don’t expect to post any more essays this year.
I’m planning to see a number of movies in the next few weeks with my wife, two daughters and son-in-law. One of our favorite holiday activities is to debate which ones to see. Debating with my kids is probably what it must be like debating with me, but in the end we all have fun and always have a lot to talk about (and Dad pays).
So drive carefully, don’t drink and drive and don’t eat too much. On the other hand, do make peace with your family members, sing a lot, say thanks to members of our armed forces and give to charity. And, OK, you can eat too much just once.
Currently well over half of the U.S. states have a drug pedigree law of some kind either on the books, in the process of being enacted or proposed in their legislature. No two laws are exactly the same. That fact is quite painful for the national participants in the supply chain and it gets a little worse every time a new law is enacted or a change is made to an existing law. For this reason, the conventional wisdom among many supply chain participants, industry organizations, solution providers, and even the regulators themselves is that a nationwide pedigree law would be better than 50 different local laws.
