A report from prominent health care industry leaders proposes actions the federal government and industry can take to avoid product shortages and regulatory hurdles in the next public health emergency.
Trade group AdvaMed should be consulted on how to implement the Defense Production Act to boost testing and PPE production, CEO Scott Whitaker said in a letter to President Biden.
In a letter to US Vice President Mike Pence, AdvaMed says it supports the federal government using its broad legal authority under the Defense Production Act to mandate increased production of personal protective equipment for outpatient physicians and health care workers. However, it cautioned the government should use the law to facilitate production rather than to take over medtech manufacturing firms.
