Medication Interaction App
It goes without saying that with the aging people depend on a growing amount of medication every day. Pills for a various amount of chronicle diseases should enhance the quality of life and ensure a well-being. But even experienced physicians don’t know about the side effects of every medication, when somebody is adviced to take about 10 tablets a day. This leads to dangerous side-effects and can worse the health status of a person.
In the future there can be a decision support system for physicians and even for the patient itself.
An application for smartphones and tablets provide an interface for patients where they are able to type in every medication they are used to and in turn the mobile device sends these medications to a database where every single medication is analysed and examined with the combination of another medication. In the end the user gets an output about the side effects and interactions of all his medications. Furthermore the user can save this query and add medications at every time he wants (maybe if he feels bad and wants to take a headache tablet).
This system can even be used in hospitals as decision support systems for physicians where this software can be implemented in the hospital information system.
The database as the important component must be maintained regularly and provide a high spectrum of medications.
