BACKGROUND: A computerized physician order entry (CPOE) system combined with a clinical decision support system can reduce duplication of medications and thus adverse drug reactions. However, without infrastructure that supports patients' integrated medication history across health care facilities nationwide, duplication of medication can still occur. In Taiwan, the National Health Insurance Administration has implemented a national medication repository and Web-based query system known as the PharmaCloud, which allows physicians to access their patients' medication records prescribed by different health care facilities across Taiwan...

REVIEW
Walter E Haefeli, Hanna M Seidling
Because of its inherent complexity, it is a considerable challenge to tailor drug treatment to a prevalent disease and its subgroups, which are increasingly defined by genomic variability (personalized medicine) and require consideration of context information such as co-morbidity, co-medication, patient preferences, and the specific characteristics of the healthcare sector. Thus, optimum treatment decisions might not be taken intuitively any longer, because decisions must be made both rapidly and increasingly based on analyses of complex relations of numerous variables that exceed the processing performance of a human brain...

The objective of this study was to develop an agent based modeling (ABM) framework to simulate the behavior of patients who leave a public hospital emergency department (ED) without being seen (LWBS). In doing so, the study complements computer modeling and cellular automata (CA) techniques to simulate the behavior of patients in an ED. After verifying and validating the model by comparing it with data from a real case study, the significance of four preventive policies including increasing number of triage nurses, fast-track treatment, increasing the waiting room capacity and reducing treatment time were investigated by utilizing ordinary least squares regression...
