It is the only software licensed to apply AGS Beers Criteria® and StoppStart® Criteria.
Developed to review medication appropriateness for older patients with multiple morbidities.
It is used by clinicians to support comprehensive medication reviews older patients, in particular, poly-pharmacy patients with multiple conditions.
Using our technology clinicians have reported:
- A reduction in the number of medications taken by patients which were found to inappropriate
- A significant number of hospital admissions prevented in their highest risk, high cost patient cohort
- Better patient adherence to drug regimens due to better understanding of medications and reduction in unnecessary medications
Supporting best practice prescribing and improving patient care
Automatically reviews each patient’s fully electronic medical record for medication appropriateness.
