Indian EMR platform HealthPlix launches drug-drug interaction feature
Indian EMR startup HealthPlix Technologies has gone live with a new drug-to-drug interaction feature on its platform.
The new tool on the HealthPlix EMR is said to reduce the time taken in writing prescriptions by assisting doctors in recalling molecule-to-molecule interactions at the point of care.
Before, doctors have to rely on external platforms to check drug-to-drug interactions, which prolongs the prescription process.
“In addition to prescribing medicine based on diagnosis, DDI provides suggestions for drugs that may be relevant to the treatment course,” added Dr Peyush Khera, a consultant cardiologist using the HealthPlix EMR.
The feature comes with a reference interactions library that helps doctors identify potentially unsafe combinations of medications.
HealthPlix plans to grow this library by integrating with global third-party providers. It targets to expand its database from 4L to 10L by March next year.
The new drug-to-drug interactions feature follows the release of the doctor insights and patient summary dashboards on the EMR app.
