e-EDPMS to enhance monitoring of essential drugs

By: TWVillavert

MONITORING of essential drugs and their corresponding prices will be easier as soon as the Department of Health (DOH) through the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) implements the e-Essential Drug Price Monitoring System or e-EDPMS

Delia Tarrosa, head of the Licensing and Regulatory Enforcement Division of FDA-6, said they are waiting for the DOH advisory for the nationwide implementation of the e-EDPMS.

Tarrosa said e-EDPMS is a computer-based solution developed to process, store and report vital information on essential drug prices and inventories nationwide.

She said 75% of the more than 2,000 drug outlets in Western Visayas have been oriented or trained on e-EDPMS.

“This system is also a big help for our food and drug inspectors to monitor drug outlets, and to make sure that essential drugs are available and accessible especially for those who most needed.”
