Implementing STEPSTools: Evidence-Based Dosage Rounding and Prescribing Heuristics in Pediatrics

RxRevu and Vanderbilt University Medical Center are collaborating to build Safety Through E-Prescribing Tools (STEPSTools), a knowledge platform designed for determining potential formulations to reach the target dosage, within the rounding tolerance specific to each pediatric medication. These formulations will then be scored and prioritized in the user interface, based on safety and efficacy. The number of tablets/administrations, volume and proximity to target dose will be taken into consideration when scoring the options. A narrative will be generated to provide documentation for the scoring and recommendations. This project is funded by a Phase I SBIR through the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD).
