Hospital Pharmacies

DYNALABS’ mission statement centers on our ability to create a higher level of patient safety in all pharmacy settings. In the hospital segment, our approach centers on a quality assurance platform. This platform focuses on being able to impact the life cycle of a drug in the pharmacy. This life cycle includes the acquisition, process design, validation, workflow, distribution, and returns of a drug.

We use our core lab, on-site testing (DVx™ – 04) and outside <797> consultants to deliver our services. The success of our quality assurance platform will impact areas such as drug cost savings/waste, clinical outcomes, and overall productivity/efficiencies in the pharmacy. It will also enhance your performance within documents/records management, regulatory compliance, existing quality control process, safety, equipment, and training.
