Better Management of Drug Shortages to Improve Patient Care and Reduce Medication Spend with The Drug Shortage App from LogicStream Health powered by ASHP Drug Shortages


Summary

Medication shortages are one of the top challenges hospital and health system pharmacy teams face every day. The American Medical Association has identified the current drug shortage situation as a national health crisis and GPOs such as Vizient have conducted surveys which determined that shortages contribute to hundreds of millions of dollars in increased drug acquisition and internal labor costs annually. Also, the Institution for Safe Medication Practices reports that drug shortages directly result in harmful patient outcomes including death, and are a major factor in the $30 billion expense that medication errors create for US health systems each year.
