  Purpose

To evaluate the quality of orders for target drugs in old patients with impaired renal function, hospitalized or living in long stay units, and to improve these practices by means of a counselling system coupled to a computer prescribing system


Condition Intervention Phase
Impaired Renal Function
Device: computer-assisted counselling about target drugs
Phase 3

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Impact of a Counselling System Coupled With a Computer Prescribing System to Optimize the Use of the Drugs for Old Subjects Having Renal Function Impairment

Further study details as provided by Assistance Publique - Hôpitaux de Paris:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Comparison of the changes from baseline of proportions [patients with inappropriate target drug prescribing/patients with creatinine clearance<60 ml/mn] between control and intervention groups [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Time-related improvement of target drug prescribing in intervention units [ Time Frame: 9 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 12
Study Start Date: May 2007
Study Completion Date: December 2008
Primary Completion Date: December 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
1 Device: computer-assisted counselling about target drugs
implementation in experimental units of a software coupled to electronic prescribing system . This software is operating in patients with creatinine clearance below 60 ml/mn. When a target drug is prescribed to such a patient, the software checks if the drug is contraindicated due to impaired renal function, and if not checks if the dose is appropriate relatively to creatinine clearance value
Other Name: computer-assisted counselling about target drugs

These units use the same electronic prescribing system, but had no counselling software
