algorithmRx develops and delivers innovative, predictive healthcare algorithms at the point of care. Our computer-based clinical decision-support systems (CDSS) provide busy clinicians with up-to-date, evidence-based guidance to enhance medication management.
We focus on common chronic diseases and health conditions that affect large segments of the US population, such as high blood cholesterol (hypercholesterolemia).
Our approach enables delivery of precise, personalized healthcare. Since drug compounds work differently in different people, our algorithm-based CDSS products help clinicians to immediately identify the most effective drug and dose regimen for each patient.
The product described below is currently in development or testing. Please contact the developer for more information on product details and timeline for general availability.
Our product is called aRx Statin Advisor, and it is one in a suite of novel, patent-pending healthcare algorithms designed to improve medication management of common chronic health conditions.
aRx Statin Advisor is an evidence-based clinical decision-support system (CDSS) designed to guide clinicians in their selection of the most effective statin and dose regimen for each patient with high blood LDL-cholesterol (“hypercholesterolemia” or “bad cholesterol”).
With aRx Statin Advisor, approximately 40 demographic, clinical and lab variables for each patient are automatically extracted from the patient’s electronic medical record (EMR/EHR). The algorithm compares the patient’s results against those of millions of other patients who have been treated with statins. aRx Statin Advisor provides a matrix of statin-dose combinations in descending order of the probability that the patient will reach his/her personal LDL-C goal. aRx Statin Advisor can be operated reliably and accurately by trained non-physician healthcare personnel (e.g., PAs, RNs, LPNs), saving time for physicians.
aRx Statin Advisor’s precise, personalized One Step to Goal approach significantly increases the probability that a prescriber will select the most effective statin-dose combination the first time for each patient. As a result, using aRx Statin Advisor can reduce costs while delivering improved healthcare outcomes faster.
