    FDA Alerts - Health Care Notification Network

    The Health Care Notification Network (“HCNN”) is a secure, private network for physicians and physician assistants that delivers FDA-mandated drug recalls and Patient Safety Alerts immediately online, replacing the traditional paper-based method which relies on slow, cumbersome delivery via U.S. mail.

    The HCNN is free for physicians and physician assistants. Funding for the network is provided by the manufacturers who are required by the FDA to issue drug recalls and Patient Safety Alerts.

    The HCNN is governed by a non-profit board that protects the identity and privacy of participants. The emphasis of the HCNN is patient safety, therefore there is no advertising or marketing of any kind. Physician and physician assistant information registered with the HCNN – including email addresses – will never be sold, shared or disclosed to any third parties, including the FDA, manufacturers and other HCNN users.
