Maharashtra to have online drug inventory for pharmacists

In a bid to monitor expiry dates of drugs and other relevant data, Maharashtra Government is in the process of developing a software to put the medical drug inventory available online with pharmacists, in all districts and tehsil hospitals.

"The online monitoring system would prevent using old or expired drugs at districts and tehsil hospitals," Health Minister Suresh Shetty informed the Legislative Council replying to a half-an-hour discussion here on Tuesday.

Raising the issue of government-run public health centres in rural areas of the state, Shiv Sena MLC Deepak Sawant alleged that at one of the centres, the swabs used for treatment had already lapsed the expiry date.

Shetty assured an inquiry into the matter.
