Cool Technology for Pharmacy – Pentapack HP500

There really aren’t too many machines out there designed to unit dose liquids on a scale small enough for the needs of an acute care pharmacy in a hospital. So when I came across the Pentapack HP500 in the ASHP Midyear exhibit hall I took notice. As demonstrated at ASHP Midyear, the machine is capable […]

To think outside the box you must first know what box you’re thinking in

I know you’ve heard it before; someone telling you to think outside the box. I know I’ve heard it a lot of times. It seems to be the catch phrase of choice when people want you to come up with a solution to a problem that no else can solve, or a problem where conventional […]

Medscape Mobile for Android on its way

Medscape was one of the first online medical communities with a specific section for pharmacists. It was also the first online medical reference site I registered to use back in 1997. Anyway, Medscape Mobile has been available for the iPhone and BalckBerry devices for quite some time. I received an email today notifying me that […]

“What’d I miss?” – The week of December 5

It’s been a busy week, and pretty much all my attention was focused on the ASHP Midyear event in Anaheim, California. Of course as a pharmacist that’s where my focus should have been, but that doesn’t mean that the rest of the world stopped moving. Here are some of the things I found interesting this week:

#ASHPMidyear, the end

Here I sit in the airport on my way home as another great ASHP Midyear has come to a close. This feels strangely familiar.  Anyway, the end of the Midyear meeting is always bittersweet. I’ve taken in about all the information my brain can possibly handle, but each day at Midyear brings something new and […]

#ASHPMidyear rolls on

Ah yes, another day of ASHP Midyear is in the books and it just keeps getting better with each passing day. Today was probably the busiest day I’ve had since arriving on Saturday, and it went something like this:

#ASHPMidyear 2010 part deux

Today was a great day to be at ASHP Midyear 2010. Things really got going as the sessions were kicked into high gear and the exhibit hall officially opened. I spent the day tracking down pharmacy automation and technology. Did you really expect me to do anything else? I don’t ever recall being as excited […]

#ASHPMidyear day one comes to an end

Each day at ASHP Midyear offers some great experiences, and today was no exception. I spent a good part of my first morning at the Talyst User Group Meeting. It’s encouraging to speak with other pharmacists that use pharmacy automation and technology in interesting ways. User Groups are a great way to get focused information […]
