RXplore: New Regenstrief tool lets docs instantly track down drug reactions

Rxplore [thumb]It's not uncommon for individuals to take as many as a dozen different prescriptions, each with its own set of possible side effects. If a patient experiences one of the potential hundreds of different adverse reactions such as nausea, headaches, insomnia or heart palpitations, how does the physician quickly and accurately determine which drug is the culprit? Jon D. Duke, M.D., a medical informatics fellow at the Regenstrief Institute and the Indiana University School of Medicine, has created an easy-to-use graphical tool called RXplore which expedites tracking down the cause of drug side-effects. His work is published in the April 2010 issue of the Journal of Biomedical Informatics. Full Story

Previous Issue

IUETC [thumb]In the April 5, 2010, edition of IT Matters @ IU, a winning relationship was highlighted as a successful resident of Indiana University's Emerging Technologies Center incubator in Indianapolis announced that record profits and projected high revenues would allow it to move into a larger space in Indiananpolis.

Video Highlight

Dr. Jon D. Duke, a medical informatics fellow at the Regenstrief Institute and the Indiana University School of Medicine, has created an easy-to-use graphical tool called RXplore, which expedites tracking down the cause of drug side-effects. RXplore allows physicians and other health-care providers to retrieve adverse reaction data for multiple medications simultaneously with an intuitive visual representation. An evaluation study showed that physicians were able to retrieve accurate side-effect information 65 percent faster using Rxplore than when using traditional drug information resources.
