How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Research and development: AiDKlinik (http://www.CPOE.de) is the name of our web-based softwaresystem that gives doctors, pharmacists and health personnel rapid access to drug risks enabling them to adapt therapies to the individual patient requirement. For example: It gives doctors access to information as to which drugs can be combined and how the drugs might interact negatively (drugsafety). We offer all kinds of interfaces (XML, HIS, HL7, SOAP, PDMS).
In a prospective two-phase intervention study we evaluated a newly developed computerised pharmacy decision support system (PDSS) for the counselling of patients with allergic rhinitis and conjunctivitis. Community pharmacists were invited to counsel a virtual patient in a first interview. Immediately thereafter, we trained pharmacists to operate t...
Prescription of excessive doses is the most common prescription error, provoking dose-dependent adverse drug reactions. Clinical decision support systems (CDSS) can prevent prescription errors especially when mainly clinically relevant warnings are issued. We have built and evaluated a CDSS providing upper dose limits personalised to individual pat...
Efficient search for and finding drugs is essential for electronic drug information systems which, for their part, are prerequisites for computerized physician order entry systems and clinical decision support with the potential to prevent medication errors. Search failures would be critical: they may delay or even prohibit prescription processes o...
A prospective controlled intervention cohort study in cancer pain patients (n=50 per group) admitted to radiation oncology wards (62 beds, 3 wards) was conducted in a 1621-bed university hospital. We investigated the effect of an intervention consisting of daily pain assessment using the numeric visual analog scale (NVAS) and pain therapy counselin...
Currently ambulatory patients break one in four tablets before ingestion. Roughly 10% of them are not suitable for splitting because they lack score lines or because enteric or modified release coating is destroyed impairing safety and effectiveness of the medication. We assessed impact and safety of computerised decision support on the inappropria...
Electronic mailing systems (e-mail) are an important means to disseminate information within electronic networks. However, in large business communities including the hectic environment of hospitals it may be difficult to induce account holders to read the e-mail. In two mailings disseminated in a large university hospital we evaluated the impact o...
The thorough analysis of special drug characteristics requires information on the specific brand of a drug. This information is often not sought in pharmacoepidemiologic surveys although in many countries packages are labelled with an unequivocal code (in Germany called Pharmazentralnummer (PZN)). We aimed to assess the benefit and quality of PZN i...
