We are pleased to announce that MedSafety Scan was featured in a recent article published in Trends in Cardiovascular Medicine. If you would like a copy, it is available in this post. The response to MedSafety Scan has been very positive and over 3,500 people from over 75 counties have registered and analyzed data for over 180,000 patient records since it was launched in April of this year.

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.

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.
