Enterprise Management of Drug Inventory, Drug Shortages, and Drug Diversion at SCL Health
September 2, 2020, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Jennifer Davis, PharmD, MBA, MISM, BCPS, FASHP, System Director of Pharmacy & Technology Initiatives, SCL Health. Managing medication supply and inventory effectively across a health system is a constant challenge due to drug shortages, incongruent data structures across procurement and clinical systems, and the constant threat of drug diversion. SCL Health has deployed a variety of tools and processes to rapidly detect and efficiently respond to drug shortages, inventory surpluses, and drug diversion. Dr. Davis discusses how new and existing systems, tools, and processes were leveraged during the COVID-19 response to ensure consistent and efficient drug inventory management in the face of pandemic challenges.
