Lina Saliba, PharmD, BCCCP, BCPS, Senior Pharmacy Specialist, Yale New Haven Health System, Samantha Bastow, PharmD, BCBS, Associate Director Clinical Pharmacy Services at UChicago Medicine, Michael Ganio, PharmD, MS, BCPS, FASHP, Director Pharmacy Practice and Quality at American Society of Hospital Pharmacists (ASHP), and Patrick Yoder, PharmD, CEO, LogicStream Health. Healthcare leadership is increasingly focused on finding ways to better manage and control the drug shortage crisis. Significant clinical staff time and money is being applied to address medications in short supply. The problem is adversely affecting hospital finances, adding risk for patients, and presenting a major obstacle to clinician productivity. Identifying, assessing and managing drug shortages and the associated workflows in the EHR as well as various pharmacy automation systems is often a highly manual, time-consuming process. Hear from this panel about the industry view from ASHP and how two innovative providers are approaching this issue, along with tools and considerations that can be used to better manage and control drug shortages.
