Computer system improves pain therapy for cancer patients
Date:8/11/2009

Pain therapy for cancer patients whether inpatient or outpatient is often inadequate. At Heidelberg University Hospital, the use of an innovative electronic system combined with guidance by an experienced clinical pharmacist has been successfully tested. The treatment of the patients showed little variance from international guidelines on pain therapy. In addition, patients reported having less pain. The results of the study have been published in the journal Pain.

The electronic pain relief guide AiDPainCare is an additional instrument of the electronic pharmaceutical guide AiDKlinik, which guides physicians safely through the current pharmaceutical market in Germany with over 64,000 products and successfully helps avoid false dosages, side effects, dangerous drug interaction, and duplications in prescriptions. The medication prescribed by the physician can be transferred from AiDKlinik directly to a prescription or medical report. The system is currently in use in 10 hospitals in Germany and can also be subscribed to by physicians in private practice (www.doctors-aid.de).

New consulting module for the electronic pharmaceutical guide AiDKlinik

AiDKlinik was developed in 2003 by the Department of Internal Medicine VI, Clinical Pharmacology and Pharmacoepidemiology, at Heidelberg University Hospital in conjunction with the hospital pharmacy. The Ministry of Education and Research funded development. Third party funding from the Ferdinand Heinrich Mrsel Foundation was acquired especially for the development of AiDPainCare.

"The safety of drug therapy from prescribing to administering is a central aspect of our work," explains Professor Walter E. Haefeli, Medical Director, Department of Internal Medicine VI, Clinical Pharmacology and Pharmacoepidemiology.
