"The need for tools that improve medication safety and efficacy is huge"

  • Blog

Hello Mats Högberg, CEO, at Pharmacolog. Tell us, why have Pharmacolog developed DrugLog, PrepLog and WasteLog?

The need for rapid drug control systems is steadily increasing. What we noticed is that each application area has specific requirements for workflow and integration. Therefore, it is a natural development to adapt our technology to these various requirements in order to achieve faster market acceptance. Underpinning it all is our well-proven DrugLog technology, which remains the guarantor of fast and reliable measurements.

How do the products differ in terms of advantages?

Basically, the foundation of all three solutions is our very accurate and fast DrugLog platform that allows the user to verify the identity and concentration of a substance in just a few seconds. The difference between the product lines is how the software and workflow are designed. Their integration also varies slightly, as all three application areas need to integrate with various other types of software. Additionally, the data exchange is somewhat different.

New solutions need to be well integrated with the surrounding environment and offer an efficient workflow.

What trends are evident today in the development of products targeting medication efficacy and safety, in your view?

The need for tools that improve medication safety and efficacy is huge, but to generate interest in new solutions, they need to be well integrated with the surrounding environment and offer an efficient workflow. Another trend in software development is making system integration less complicated. Modern software tools and methods use a very modular approach which makes it easier to develop different software applications based on the same platform. This lowers the cost and complexity of not only developing, but also maintaining many software solutions compared to before. Integration has also become a lot easier due to standard protocols which makes it less of a hassle to integrate various systems into other major hospital software like Hospital Information Systems (HIS) and Electronic Patient Records (EMR)r.
