Improving Safety

Health System Solutions

Improve patient safety with high-quality, efficient products 

With decades of expertise in key areas like outsourced sterile compounding and prepackaged unit-dose products, AmerisourceBergen helps ensure that pharmacies remain compliant by providing safe, high-quality pharmaceuticals for their patients. Our automated inventory management solutions help health systems adhere to regulatory requirements while maintaining safe and secure product access. 

The FDA encourages healthcare facilities that purchase compounded drugs to obtain them from outsourcing facilities because they are subject to increased quality standards and federal oversight.
