The Story

Precision Medicine: Why DIT Drug Database (DDD) and the MDDI Technology is needed in medical practice?


Imagine Dr. Meyer using his EMR and e-prescribing software has to treat Mr. William Pick, an older multimorbide patient.

Mr. Pick is due to hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, back ache and psychiatric disorders permanently on 6 drugs including amlodipine, ramipril, simvastatin,  paroxetine, and aripiprazole. Mr. Pick suffers also from CKD stage 3A with a creatinine clearance of 40ml/min.  Furthermore Mr. Pick is a poor metabolizer at Cytochrome P450 2C19.

Dr. Meyer diagnoses an acute infection for which he wants to prescribe clarithromycin. Furthermore he wants to raise the dose of ramipril from 5mg to 10mg per day as the hypertension ist not well controlled.

How long will it take till Dr. Meyer knows from his software and drug database

  • which drug interactions need immediate attention and what measures have to be taken?

  • which ramipril dosing is appropriate?

 

If Dr. Meyers needs more than a minute to identify all the major risks from this polypharmacy and to make decisions how to avoid them he definitely needs DIT Drug Database (DDD) with the new MDDI Calculator.
