LogicStream Health, a leading clinical process improvement and control software provider supporting hundreds of hospitals nationwide, introduced new software that helps hospital pharmacy teams proactively manage and better control drug diversion activity.
The Drug Diversion App from LogicStream Health™ gives hospitals early warning signals about potential instances of drug diversion and clinicians who may be diverting medications. According to Patrick Yoder, PharmD, CEO and co-founder of LogicStream Health, “The Drug Diversion App is truly unique because it aggregates electronic health record (EHR), automated dispensing cabinet (ADC) and carousel data, as well as other data sources to produce an ongoing stream of information and notification of potential diversion activity.”
Dr. Yoder said The Drug Diversion App “provides active surveillance of drug ordering, administration and all dispensation activities, signaling to administrators and clinical leaders which clinicians are potentially diverting drugs.” The App combines multiple data sources to detect warning signs attributable to an individual, rather than comparing data medication by medication. “This approach allows for a deeper investigation leading to a decision to intervene or to dismiss warning signals, all from within The App.”
The Drug Diversion App is scheduled to be released in the first quarter of 2020, with several innovation partners beginning use in January. The Drug Diversion App is part of an expanding suite of pharmacy software-as-a-service (SaaS) apps running on the LogicStream Health Clinical Process Improvement and Control Platform that provide insights to better manage problems like drug diversion and drug shortages. The company introduced The Drug Shortage App from LogicStream Health™ in December 2018. Since its introduction, The Drug Shortage App has been selected for use by nearly 100 hospitals.
Demonstrations of The Drug Diversion App and The Drug Shortage App will be conducted at the ASHP Midyear 2019 Clinical Meeting & Exhibition in Las Vegas December 9 to 11, 2019. The company will be located at Booth #2453 in the ASHP Exhibit Hall, Bayside C.
