USAMMA DOC creates, publishes, and distributes DoD-MMQC messages and Army-Medical Materiel Instructions (MMI) messages to subscribed customers for all medical materiel. These messages contain urgent information of system-wide interest, including:
Suspension of medical materiel
Extension of storage time periods (potency expiration dates) Disposition instructions Other significant quality control information
The MMQC program monitors and directs appropriate DoD action with respect to voluntary and involuntary medical product recalls, hazard alerts, and advisory notices to assure that the proper use, handling, and return of recalled product is accomplished to protect patient safety. Quality control data comes from pharmaceutical and/or medical device and equipment manufacturers regarding their products.
FDA recalls are classified as follows:
Class I: A situation in which there is a reasonable probability that the use of, or exposure to, a dangerous product will cause serious adverse health consequences or death.
Class II: A situation in which the use of, or exposure to, a dangerous product may cause adverse health consequences.
Class III: A situation in which the use of, or exposure to, a dangerous product is not likely to cause adverse health consequences.
