Clinical Rules is a real-time decision support module, which focuses on medication safety based on an in-depth risk profile of the patient. By separating irrelevant issues from essential problems and providing professional support throughout the chain of care, Clinical Rules allows for more purposeful notifications. Clinical Rules provides a broader and more specific analysis in a longitudinal context compared with the traditional method of medication monitoring.
Clinical Rules does not analyse medication based on one-to-one relations, but calculates in real time the outcomes of complex individual risk profiles by using anonymised patient data, such as age, gender, registered (contra)indications and medication. This analysis is done both proactively (incident signalling) and retrospectively (follow-up of incident reports, taking into account the intermediate interventions). This results in a personalised advice for each patient.
