Sign Up for FREE Drug Recall Notifications and Patient Safety Alerts

Members & Publications


July 1, 2015

Register with the Health Care Notification Network (HCNN) to receive free patient safety alerts.

The Academy has partnered with HCNN, a secure, private network for physicians and physician assistants, to deliver drug recalls and patient safety alerts as mandated by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). HCNN delivers alerts immediately online, replacing the slower, paper-based method.

Funding is provided by the manufacturers who are required by FDA to issue drug recalls and patient safety alerts; HCNN does not include any advertising of any kind. The network is governed by a non-profit board that protects the identity and privacy of participants (registered information, including e-mail addresses, will never be sold, shared, or disclosed to third parties including the FDA, manufacturers, and other HCNN users).

Note: Physicians and physician assistants may designate other health care professionals who are part of their medical team to receive HCNN alerts, and registered users may opt out at any time.

Register today at PDR Network to improve patient safety and reduce physician liability.

Legislation Introduced to Alleviate Impact of Conversion Factor Cut for 2021

Nov 09, 2020

Last month, two bills were introduced in the House proposing solutions to the estimated 10.6% Physician Fee Schedule conversion factor cut expected to go into effect January 1, 2021.  The bills offer some relief to the cut, but do not reflect a comprehensive or long-term solution.  AAPM&R has therefore chosen to remain neutral regarding these bills. 

Your Academy continues to advocate for a permanent solution to the conversion factor cut while maintaining the important payment increases to office and outpatient evaluation and management services.
