Drug Alerts Sent Instantly to U.S. Doctors via Email

Welcome to the Health Care Notification Network (HCNN), the only secure online service that delivers urgent patient safety alerts to healthcare providers.

A new network to deliver drug safety alerts online to U.S. physicians was launched today, replacing a widely criticized and decades-old system based upon paper and U.S. mail. The Health Care Notification Network ("HCNN") is the result of a three-year effort and an unprecedented collaboration between U.S. medical society leaders, liability carriers, health plans, consumer advocacy groups, government leaders and industry, including major pharmaceutical manufacturers. The HCNN will also be available for rapid communication with physicians in the event of emergency public health or bio-terror events.
