Easy clinic management - Prescription writer or Rx writer software

Rx writing software or prescription writing software for doctors has been proved very useful for both doctors and patients. People sometimes ask me, why a doctor needs such a software when he can write observations and medicines on prescription pads. How prescription writing software is helpful for doctors, patients and medical students?

If you too have such a query then here are some facts to answer your questions.

According to The New York Times wrong medication or drug side effects harms about 1.9 million people in US which caused lost wages, productivity and also the extra health care expenses of about $3.5 billion. When researched it was found that in about 60% of the cases, patients got either wrong drug (due to poor readability of prescription) or side effects of drugs taken without considering allergy and drug interactions. Most of these drugs include pain relievers, cancer drugs and BP medicines.

Although noted and published only in US but, the story runs all over the World especially in India, Sri lanka, UK and Australia.

If we see another face of the coin then we will find that situation is critical for doctors too. They get jailed, fined and sometimes even banned due to patient’s death.

Imagine this scenario
A mother takes her 8 years old child- a cancer patient to a very busy oncology clinic for chemotherapy treatment. The doctor writes for the chemotherapy drug but, due to unclear handwriting it is difficult to read where the decimal point is, on the prescription pad: is that 0.10 or 1.0? The assistant is too new nurse to decide so she asks senior nurse to help, since the doctor is too busy with an overflowing list of patients so, they take 1.0 as final. Incidentally, the hospital has just moved on to new infusion pump and all the staff are too new to handle it accurately. The assistant unintentionally enters a dose of 10.0. The poor child ends up receiving 100 times the prescribed dosage and passes away before the error is identified.

Whose fault is there? Who is to blame? Should each be accountable for this miss happening?

A committee, in USA suggested the government to develop a fool proof communication system between Doctors, Patients and Chemists. Finally, keeping all such scenario in mind, software called PrescriptionPad, is developed to help every person related with medicines whether he is a doctor or a patient or a learning medical student.

The PrescriptionPad assists doctors to keep patients details always with them. It guides physician and patients about wrong drug interactions with a huge list of brands. The best part of this application is – it avoids reading errors and warns about side effects and wrong brand interactions, in advance.
