82. Evaluation of a mobile electronic assistant to aid in fluindione prescription: The INRPlus cluster randomized trial. (PubMed)

Evaluation of a mobile electronic assistant to aid in fluindione prescription: The INRPlus cluster randomized trial. Regular monitoring of the international normalized ratio (INR) is crucial for dose adjustment of vitamin K antagonists (VKA) to maximize time in therapeutic range (TTR). We compared the use of a mobile electronic assistant INRPlus which proposes patient-specific fluindione doses, to standard fluindione management in a cluster randomized controlled study.Twenty clusters of six (...) % of non-compliant patients and 67.1% of reference patients.In this trial, the use of the INRPlus electronic assistant resulted in a non-significant improvement in TTR that may be due to a higher than expected TTR in the control group.Copyright © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.

83. Prescription Monitoring Programs in Canada: Best Practice and Program Review

for the Electronic Recording and Reporting of Controlled Drugs (Nicholas, 2013). These programs are quite varied in their administration and scope, but all are designed to exert controls on the prescription of products with pharmacological properties that can lead to misuse and addiction. The purposes of PMPs have been articulated in many ways, but the common themes are: • To enhance patient care and assist in the safe use of controlled prescription drugs by monitoring outpatient prescription dispensing (...) focused on the use of multiple copy prescription pads. These programs require that prescribers use special paper prescription pads to produce a valid prescription. This requirement is still in place in several jurisdictions, with or without electronic submissions. Each paper prescription has two or three copies, where in addition to the pharmacy copy, another copy might stay with the prescriber or be submitted to the PMP for tracking purposes. In addition to tracking prescription information

85. Identification of patients with hemoglobin SS/Sβ0 thalassemia disease and pain crises within electronic health records (PubMed)

Identification of patients with hemoglobin SS/Sβ0 thalassemia disease and pain crises within electronic health records Electronic health records (EHRs) are a source of big data that provide opportunities for conducting population-based studies and creating learning health systems, especially for rare conditions such as sickle cell disease (SCD). The objective of our study is to validate algorithms for accurate identification of patients with hemoglobin (Hb) SS/Sβ0 thalassemia and acute care (...) encounters for pain among SCD patients within EHR warehouse. We used data for children receiving care at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin from 2013 to 2016 to test the accuracy of the 2 algorithms. The algorithm for genotype identification used composite information (blood test results, transcranial Doppler) along with diagnoses codes. Acute pain encounters were identified using diagnoses codes and further refined by using prescription of IV pain medications. Sensitivities and specificities were

87. Improving the Affordability of Prescription Medications for People with Chronic Respiratory Disease. An Official American Thoracic Society Policy Statement. (PubMed)

Improving the Affordability of Prescription Medications for People with Chronic Respiratory Disease. An Official American Thoracic Society Policy Statement. Mounting evidence indicates that out-of-pocket costs for prescription medications, particularly among low- and middle-income patients with chronic diseases, are imposing financial burden, reducing medication adherence, and worsening health outcomes. This problem is exacerbated by a paucity of generic alternatives for prevalent lung diseases (...) , such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, as well as high-cost medicines for rare diseases, such as cystic fibrosis. Affordability and access challenges are especially salient in the United States, as citizens of many other countries pay lower prices for and have greater access to prescription medications.The American Thoracic Society convened a multidisciplinary committee comprising experts in health policy pharmacoeconomics, behavioral sciences, and clinical care, along with individuals

93. Physician Time Burden Associated with Querying Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs. (PubMed)

Physician Time Burden Associated with Querying Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs. Prescription drug monitoring programs (PDMPs) enable prescribers to review patient prescription histories, and their use is mandatory in many states. We estimated the cost of physicians retrieving PDMP patient reports compared with a model where a delegate (i.e., administrative staff) retrieves reports.We performed a cost analysis with a one-year time horizon, from the perspective of physicians' employers. We (...) obtained specialty-specific estimates of controlled substance prescribing frequency from the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey, 2012-2014. We defined three PDMP usage cases based on the frequency of queries: comprehensive (before every Schedule II-IV controlled substance prescription), selective (before new Schedule II-IV prescriptions and every six months for continuing medications), and minimal (before new Schedule II or III prescriptions and annually for continuing medications).The delegate

Physicians' Perspectives Regarding Prescription Drug Monitoring Program Use Within the Department of Veterans Affairs: a Multi-State Qualitative Study. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has implemented robust strategies to monitor prescription opioid dispensing, but these strategies have not accounted for opioids prescribed by non-VA providers. State-based prescription drug monitoring programs (PDMPs) are a potential tool to identify VA patients' receipt of opioids from non-VA prescribers (...) use, physicians endorsed (1) linking PDMPs with the VA electronic health record, (2) using templated notes to document PDMP use, and (3) delegating routine PDMP queries to ancillary staff.Despite the time and administrative burdens associated with their use, VA physicians in our study broadly supported PDMPs. The application of our findings to ongoing PDMP implementation efforts may strengthen PDMP use both within and outside VA and improve the safe prescribing of opioids.

Safety and tolerability of prescription omega-3 fatty acids: A systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials. Omega-3 fatty acids [eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)] are widely recommended for health promotion. Over the last decade, prescription omega-3 fatty acid products (RxOME3FAs) have been approved for medical indications. Nonetheless, there is no comprehensive analysis of safety and tolerability of RxOME3FAs so far.A systematic review (...) of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) was carried out based on searches in six electronic databases. The studies involving marketed RxOME3FA products were included, and adverse-effect data were extracted for meta-analysis.
