House of Delegates - New Policy Updates

During the June 2023 ASHP House of Delegates, the House approved two new business items, Sustainable Billing, Reimbursement, and Payment Models and Barcoding of Lot Number and Expiration Date. At its July meeting, the ASHP Board of Directors approved both items of new business, making them official ASHP professional policies. These two new policies, with their rationales, have been added to the record of policies approved by the ASHP House of Delegates March-June 2023 and are now available on the ASHP House of Delegates website.
