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.”

WE have to be ready for wherever divine providence would take us. We have to be open to it all the time. Even as we make our plans and pursue them truly as our own, we should not forget that nothing in our life is actually outside the providence of God who can adapt Himself to us, even in our worst situations and predicaments, and still lead us to Himself.

Why we remain “third world”

THE ANSWER: “Culture eats strategy for breakfast,” says Peter Drucker.

He could not more emphasize the role of a country’s beliefs, values and norms that downplay our best efforts to move us from the backseat into the limelight. Unless we understand what holds us back, our government can only make ostensible programs while the citizenry continuously becomes recalcitrant towards change.  Read more...
