Automate Shortage Inventory
Eliminate the manual processes of running reports, analyzing data, and transcribing into a spreadsheet. Our automated drug shortage inventory functionality breaks down data silos and aggregates all your pharmacy data into one easy-to-use interface.
Our platform enables you to auto-update inventory feeds based on your chosen timeline, view inventory summaries and drill down to the location or cabinet so you can make appropriate strategic decisions for your organization. Your runway is automatically calculated, displayed, and sorted based upon your defined usage rates.
Add New Shortages with Ease
In seconds, add new shortage listings directly from your connected catalogs, and our system will fill in the NDC, CIN, MedID and inventory automatically. Don’t worry about duplicates, we’ll highlight which listings already exist so your data remains clean.
Shortage listings, along with their history, can be easily archived and quickly retrieved if a shortage returns.
Create Custom Labels
Organize your OrbitalRX Shortage Directory with custom labels. Better manage your long and complicated list of shortages with labels specific to your organization’s needs and workflows.
From creating meeting agendas to grouping together related shortages, labels put your team in charge of addressing your shortages more easily.
Save Time with Meeting Notes
Our Meeting Notes capability cuts down on the time spent in meetings, as well as individually, managing shortages. You’ll be able to provide your organization with improved transparency and access to shortage-specific notes in real-time.
Now you have a longitudinal record of all your meeting notes so you can quickly reference the history of a shortage and easily track follow-up activities from previous meetings.
