LogicStream app helps pharmacists manage drug shortages

LogicStream Health, a process improvement and control software provider, launched an app to help hospital pharmacy teams quickly identify and control drug shortages.

The Drug Shortage App, developed to help hospitals protect the safety of their patients, tracks nationwide medication shortages, monitors hospital-specific prescribing trends and provides insights into the hospital's drug inventory. Using a proprietary algorithm, the app provides pharmacy staff with comprehensive insights in near real-time to inform decisions.

The app will help pharmacy leaders assess possible risks and plan to head off adverse events as a result of a medication shortage.

Brita Hansen, MD, and CMO of LogicStream, said the app cuts the time it takes to evaluate a new drug shortage "down to minutes, giving back to your clinical pharmacy team valuable time they can spend on other high-value clinical duties."
