The FDA has found it difficult to keep the total number of drug shortages from growing, but the agency figures it can at least help healthcare providers more easily track them. To do that it has released a mobile app that will allow anyone to use a smartphone to look up current shortages and discontinuations as well as shortages that have been resolved.
On Wednesday, the FDA announced the release of its "Drug Shortages" app, which is available via a free download on iTunes, the Google Play store and can be found by searching "FDA Drug Shortages."
