Pharmacy OneSource releases new version of Simplifi 797 pharmacy compounding software

New version includes features for ensuring staff competencies

BELLEVUE, Wash. — A division of Wolters Kluwer Health has released a new version of a Web-based quality-assurance software for pharmacy compounding.

Pharmacy OneSource announced the release of a new version of Simplifi 797, used for ensuring compliance with USP chapter 797 regulations, which call for proper training of staff who prepare sterile compounded products.

The software includes a redesigned dashboard that allows for tracking of competencies by separating them for each staff member. This allows assignments for the entire clean-room staff to be created or modified with just a few clicks, the company said.

The release of the new software comes amid a nationwide outbreak of meningitis that authorities say stemmed from compounded injectable steroids that were contaminated with a rare fungus from a New England-based compounding pharmacy. The outbreak so far has resulted in 257 cases and 20 deaths as of Friday, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's daily update.
