AZCERT recently made its MedSafety Scan decision support system available to health care professionals during the COVID-19 pandemic. In case you missed the announcement, and to keep you informed on how MedSafety Scan is progressing, we are sharing with you a copy of our first newsletter sent to all MSS registrants on June 25, 2020. Thank you for your interest in CredibleMeds and our efforts to improve the safe use of medicines.
AZCERT is making MedSafety Scan®, a web-based decision support system, available free to medical professionals around the world, especially those treating high risk COVID-19 patients. MedSafety Scan can warn healthcare providers when their patients are prescribed drugs that place them at high risk of developing a potentially lethal cardiac arrhythmia known as torsades de pointes (TdP). MedSafety Scan also checks for potentially dangerous drug-interactions and suggests options for how to monitor the patient and reduce their risk of harm.
