APA has worked with the FDA, AMA, state medical societies, and liability
carriers to bring a new service—the Health Care Notification Network
(HCNN)—to APA members. The HCNN, which is a private network for
physicians and health care professionals, provides secure online delivery of
news about drug and medical-device recalls and patient-safety alerts,
replacing the current paper process that is both slow and prone to error.
These are among other HCNN features:
Alerts sent through the HCNN are paid for by manufacturers who use the
network for alert delivery.
APA members may enroll online at<www.hcnn.net/registration/apa/registration.aspx>.
