How do you know if a patient is receiving the correct dose?  Better yet, how can you check if your entire patient panel is on the right dosage?

Although identifying the ‘right’ dosage is difficult, it is much easier to see if your patients are on the wrong dosage.  Medi-Span’s Dose-Chek data provides information on the following:

  • Screening for inappropriate daily dose
  • Screening for individual doses that exceed maximum recommended values
  • Screening for inappropriate duration of therapy

The Dose-Chek data describing minimum, usual, and maximum daily dosages, as well as maximum individual dosages for a drug product. Because appropriate dosage varies by patient type, Dose-Check has this information for normal adult, geriatric, pediatric, and infant patients in their database.
