Formulay addition/deletion spreadsheet


Does anyone have a formulary addition spreadsheet (or process that isn't a spreadsheet) that they use as a checklist to make sure all the "things" are done when a new drug is added to the formulary (ie. EHR dictionary build, ADC build, IV pump build, HD assessment, safety concerns such as High Alert or LASA, special handling, etc)? I have a formulary request form that has these items on it for me to fill out but I don't have a good process. I also have a spreadsheet for formulary additions and deletions but it too doesn't have a good process around it, mainly because it involves more people than just myself.

Thank you in advance for any tips and tricks!
