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 staff.

“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.”
