How to choose reliable pharma suppliers?
The supplier selection amazes with its variety and diversity. Local or worldwide, concentrates on one manufacturer or has many products in stock, sells wholesale or not – options and combinations are countless. However, sometimes it is not easy for people to choose one among potential suppliers because of the number of alternatives out there. So, here are a few aspects that may be helpful in this complicated task:
- The supplier should have a federal certification/license. That means they follow the FDA rules of storage (lightning, ventilation, temperature, and other factors), safety, etc. Some suppliers also get a certification from the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP). Regulatory compliance is a very important factor, you shouldn’t underestimate it;
- They offer a broad range of products from various brands. Cooperation with various reliable manufacturers is an essential factor when choosing a supplier for long-term cooperation. To increase the number of clients, they have to develop, add new prescription medications from different brands, and make lots of interesting offers for their regulars;
- A pharmaceutical supplier doesn’t hide where it gets the drugs from. The client has the right to ask where the products pharmaceutical distributor sells are coming from, as well as about the supporting documentation. The thing is, if medications are counterfeit, distributors should be charged criminally. Otherwise, the chances of harming the patients are very high;
- The quality of service is a number-one priority to them. If the client is satisfied with the way their API supplier works, drug quality, if the products are cost-effective and contain high-quality active pharmaceutical ingredients, they will definitely want to make one more order there;
- People’s opinion always matters. When buying medical supplies, people should always look for quality assurance in their API suppliers. Thanks to the Internet, it is possible to read feedback from real customers and learn everything about multiple suppliers out there. This way, you will make sure excellent service is guaranteed for you.
As this field develops with incredible speed, it is vital to improve the medication development and manufacturing process quickly. Otherwise, the market will be filled with low-quality products and unsatisfied (or even traumatized) clients.
Signs pharmaceutical companies may be frauds
Those healthcare professionals who work with supplier management know the basic factors that distinguish frauds from trustworthy suppliers out there. Those are pretty simple and understandable, so there should be no problems with that in the future:
- The lowest price is not a plus. In the sphere of aesthetic medicine, products that are suspiciously cheap are not worth trusting. Medications are not something you should save money on. The patient’s health should be a priority;
- Real suppliers always ask about the license. High-quality raw materials medications can only be sold to licensed professionals. If not – it can be punished by the law;
- If a supplier doesn’t want to have open communication – it is a red flag. A reliable distributor will talk openly about the order status, delivery information, as well as help with missing, damaged, or returned products;
- Al the products and tools for drug administration should be FDA approved. If they not, chances are the ingredients in the drug’s composition may be harmful and dangerous to those who use them.
