Who NDS Serves

Distributors

Healthcare facilities and the patients they represent, give you the crucial responsibility to consistently deliver quality and effective products. Partnering with vetted suppliers who can source from a large, well-diversified, quality supply chain is vital to your success and the success of your customers.

NDS supports distributors who import unlicensed medicines to sell to government institutions, research facilities, hospitals, physicians and clinics, and other valued entities. Whether a distributor is experiencing a drug shortage or needs special medications, we have the expertise to deliver safe and effective products with a proven supply chain.

We’d love the opportunity to partner with you to bring useful B2B procurement tools, instant visibility, up-to-date pricing, personalized customer service, and reliability—all critical to your core business activity and success.

Hospitals and Healthcare Institutions

We support hospitals by expanding access to products otherwise not available through their ordinary supply chain. NDS can help hospitals who directly source for patient-specific needs or to overcome temporary shortages. Through our broad supplier network, we can support a variety of specialized needs, such as sourcing requests for expanded access, sometimes called compassionate use, or named patient basis.

You can rely on the NDS process. We offer visibility to tens of thousands of products within a portal receiving updates of manufacturer-reported clinical information. This information is furnished by the same global data provider trusted by the top U.S. hospitals and over 20 million healthcare professionals worldwide. We are in full compliance with the U.S. Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA), as well as meeting or exceeding U.S. and World Health Organization Good Distribution Practices (GDP) for medicinal products.

NDS gives you the ability to simplify procurement practices. From role-based spending permissions to insight into purchasing history, the NDS portal provides customer-driven procurement control and the robust analytics to help you gain the most from your shopping experience.

Physicians & Clinics

Once reserved solely for the supply chain professionals, physicians are becoming increasingly involved in these operations. Physicians are becoming more deeply engaged in sourcing as they realize the importance their clinical perspective can provide. NDS can support you by offering the same service and products supplied to healthcare facilities worldwide.

A vetted, stable, and secure supply chain helps ensure doctors can offer safer and better outcomes for their patients. Of equal importance in the physician’s decision-making process is the ability to access immediate, reliable data for the products they choose.

Understanding your need for accurate data, we provide real-time access to tens of thousands of products from a database updated with the latest manufacturer-provided clinical information, assisting you when considering specialty products for Expanded Access Program (EAP), Managed Access Program (MAP), Early Access Program, Named Patient Supply, Compassionate Use Program (CUP), and Authorization for Temporary Use (ATU).

Researchers

Complex clinical trials lead to complexities in sourcing. Studies spanning across multiple countries that involve large patient populations can pose a real challenge in ensuring comparators are available in the right quantity and at the right time. Research professionals and others in complex settings can rely on NDS to source authentic and effective products that will impact the accuracy of their results. With NDS, you also gain a broad, reliable supplier base with competitive pricing who is always searching for new suppliers of comparator drugs and reference listed drugs (RLD) with stringent due diligence.

NDS provides full transparency on the supply chain back to the manufacturer and is qualified as compliant according to the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA). Learn more about why you can confidently add NDS to your trusted supplier network.
