The Drug Shortage App helps pharmacy teams save lives, time and money.
The app automates many of the manual processes currently used by
hospital and health system teams combating the drug shortage crisis. One
key benefit of the software is its capability to proactively identify
the impact of drug shortages that matter most to clinical operations
“The app gives pharmacy teams a global perspective of shortages and
identifies how best to control the demand of drugs in short supply,”
said Patrick Yoder, PharmD, CEO and co-founder of LogicStream Health.
“The app is greatly reducing the pain teams are feeling related to
shortages, with an early warning system specific to each hospital and
automated action plans.”
“Drug shortages are a major challenge for hospital pharmacy teams across
the country,” said Seth Hartman, PharmD, MBA, Director of Pharmacy
Informatics at UChicago Medicine, an academic medical health system
based in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood. “We believe applying
innovative technologies and processes will help us get ahead of this
nation-wide problem and improve our patient care.”
