Moorestown, NJ, September 16, 2019 – Tabula Rasa HealthCare, Inc. (TRHC) (NASDAQ: TRHC), a healthcare technology company advancing the field of medication safety, announced an independent study evaluating Bayesian Forecasting (BF) programs found TRHC’s DoseMe BF program, DoseMeRx, to be the most user-friendly.
BF programs, such as DoseMeRx, use patient data and laboratory results to estimate a patient’s ability to process a drug. Using a published population model, the program adjusts the pharmacokinetic parameters and provides an individualized dosing recommendation to reach a therapeutic target.
Published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology (BJCP), the purpose of the study was to evaluate three BF programs, of which DoseMeRx was one, on their user-friendliness and common liked and disliked features through a study of hospital pharmacists. Twenty-seven clinical pharmacists across three teaching hospitals, that were not currently using a BF program, participated.
“A potential barrier to the use of the Bayesian forecasting method of dose individualization is the availability of an easy-to-use program,” said TRHC Chairman and CEO Calvin H. Knowlton, PhD. “We are pleased and proud DoseMeRx has been positively evaluated as user-friendly in a clinical setting. It supports the evidence these programs are designed for clinical implementation.”
This is the first ever user-friendly evaluation of these programs with end-users, according to the BJCP article titled, “An Evaluation of the User-friendliness of Bayesian Forecasting in a Clinical Setting”.
“DoseMeRx was the favored software across all user-friendly categories, most notably in the ease of data entry and clarity of understanding and interpreting recommendations presented,” stated DoseMe CEO Charles Cornish. “We built DoseMeRx with two fundamental pillars at its core: proven science and amazing usability. Clinicians do not have seconds to waste, so usability is key to the clinical impact of decision support tools like DoseMeRx. The easier our software is to use, the more it is used and supports clinicians in improving patient safety, clinical outcomes and workflows”.
DoseMe’s precision dosing software, DoseMeRx, was developed specifically for clinical practice. It is a simple, yet powerful tool helping healthcare providers calculate the optimal dose of drugs monitored by therapeutic drug monitoring to streamline operations, reduce adverse drug events, decrease costs, and improve patient outcomes.
