Annual ‘Breakthrough Awards Program’ Recognizes Outstanding
Technological Innovations in the Health and Medical Industries
Health today announced that The
Drug Shortage App From LogicStream HealthTM won the
“Clinical Efficiency Innovation Award” by MedTech
Breakthrough, an independent organization that recognizes
technological innovation in the health and medical industries. This
award comes from MedTech Breakthrough’s annual awards program, which
garnered more than 3,500 nominations from across the globe.
The Drug Shortage App addresses the growing concern of the drug shortage
crisis in the U.S. healthcare system, and its many negative
repercussions. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the
number and duration of prescription drug shortages is growing; these
shortages lead to: rising drug costs; a negative impact on pharmacist
productivity levels; compromised or delayed medical procedures and drug
therapy efforts; and healthcare professionals forced to turn to other
medications, which can led to increased risks to patient safety.
The Drug Shortage App, however, works to provide healthcare
professionals and hospital pharmacists necessary early-warning
information to manage both supply and demand for specific medications
during a shortage. The app allows professionals to see which clinicians
frequently prescribe and dispense certain medications, to manage
inventory levels, and evaluate when the shortage is over.
Patrick Yoder, PharmD, Co-Founder and CEO, LogicStream Health, said,
“Our groundbreaking drug shortage app has tremendous momentum this year
with several new major U.S. health systems signing up and a healthy
ongoing demand and pipeline. We are thrilled to accept this honor from
MedTech Breakthrough and will continue to strive for innovation and
excellence in all we do in our mission to combat the nationwide drug
