Best Online Tools for Hospital Pharmacists

There are many online tools for help with calculating and other pharmacy-related tasks, but most of them seem to be no-brainers.

There are many online tools for help with calculating and other pharmacy-related tasks, but most of them seem to be no-brainers.

The following are my go-to apps and websites that I use quite regularly in hospital pharmacy practice:

Lexicomp has an online list of medications that cannot be crushed or altered. Just type “crush” in the search bar.

ClinCalc has all kinds of calculators that are easy-to-use. Need to calculate a TPN? Vancomycin? APACHE II score?

WarfarinDosing is a great source to find comparable warfarin dosing based on INR and other factors.

MedCalc is another good app I use at the hospital to calculate everything from corrected calcium to anion gap.
