In 2013 the Hospital Pharmacy of Funen had 300 out of 550 on-call pharmacy service calls (equivalent to 55%) exclusively concerning requests about where to borrow a needed drug.
”MedSearch” (MS) software was developed with the assistance of an IT-designer. MS is operated by entering the generic name of the drug, and then choosing the wanted form.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
