Are Physician Offices and Clinics Considered Dispensers Under the DSCSA?

Physician offices and clinics are considered a trading partner under the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) if they procure medications.  The source of procurement is responsible for meeting the DSCSA.  There are some exceptions for the electronic requirement for a physician’s office.  However, the purchaser of the pharmaceuticals that the physician is dispensing is responsible for meeting the DSCSA requirements.
