As part of Gundersen Health System, Gundersen Lutheran Medical Center is a physician led, non-profit healthcare system. The Center has decided to further strengthen their drug diversion prevention program by adding efficient waste screening and have for that purpose ordered WasteLog®.

Jeffrey Marton, Director of Sales North America comments: “Working with Gundersen Health System has been an excellent experience. Gunderson found out about Pharmacolog and WasteLog when searching for efficient instruments for waste screening. The Pharmacy director at the Lutheran Medical Center contacted me and we arranged a demonstration of WasteLog. Immediately they realized that WasteLog was the solution that the pharmacy was looking for. From that point, it only took a couple of weeks for us to receive the order.”
