Tom Lodise, PharmD, PhD Named Chairman
Moorestown, NJ, February 16, 2021 – Tabula Rasa HealthCare, Inc (TRHC) (NASDAQ: TRHC), a healthcare technology company advancing safe use of medications, today announced the formation of its Hospital Division Clinical Advisory Board (CAB). This group of clinical leaders brings expertise from across the health system and infusion provider markets, and will provide guidance to help shape continuing innovation at TRHC, particularly through TRHC’s Bayesian dosing solution, DoseMeRx.
TRHC Chief Scientific Officer and CEO of TRHC’s Scientific Precision Pharmacotherapy Research & Development Institute Dr. Jacques Turgeon stated, “The addition of the Hospital Division’s Clinical Advisory Board will allow us to advance our research and experience in pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics and continue to enhance our pharmacy-focused clinical decision support software platforms”.
Thomas Lodise, PharmD, PhD, professor, Albany Pharmacy College of Health Sciences and clinical pharmacy specialist at the Stratton VA Medical Center, has been named chairman of the advisory board.
Dr. Lodise, an internationally known expert in antimicrobial pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics is co-author of the 2020 published revised consensus guideline and review for monitoring vancomycin in the treatment of serious methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infections.
“As a practicing clinician, I recognize research cannot improve patient care unless the knowledge is transferable. In the era of personalized medicine, we cannot apply a ‘one size fits all’ approach to dosing,” said Dr Lodise. “I’m excited in this modern era that Bayesian dosing software like DoseMeRx makes it possible to apply best clinical practices at the beside. There’s no better way to merge my research focus and clinical knowledge than to lead this CAB.”

- Tom Lodise, PharmD, PhD (Chair); Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, Albany, NY

“We are pleased to attract such a knowledgeable group of infectious disease and clinical pharmacy practitioners from leading health systems and infusion providers,” said Dr. Kristi Kuper, Director of Clinical Pharmacy, Hospital Division, TRHC. “Their knowledge, expertise, and best practices are invaluable in helping us continually improve and shape how precision medication dosing is applied at the patient’s bedside”.
