Know the Label: FDA-Approved
Electronic Label Updates and Free CME
Physicians can now stay up-to-date with the most frequently updated FDA prescribing information (label changes) through our online partnership with the PDR Network (publishers of the Physicians’ Desk Reference). Clinically relevant changes to existing prescription labels affect over 25 percent of drugs yearly. Those changes are important to protecting your practice and to patient safety. In 2011, 6 percent of our closed claims involved medication-related errors, and the FDA-approved labeling is often the standard to which physicians are held in these suits.
Physicians are notified of these label changes electronically over the PDR Alert Network. Immediately after review, they can earn CME (continuing medical education) credits at no charge at the PDR Network Web site. The Doctors Company provides the CME credits.
