Combination Therapy Monitoring
Combination therapy refers to the simultaneous administration of two or more medications to treat a single disease or when multiple therapies are used at the same time.
With combination therapy, the TIMING of delivery is a critical component and so measures must be taken to validate your data before entering results into your system. The software contains 'smart', error-trapping code (based on your business rules), that allow you to define the criteria for your combination data capture.
For example, on a single form we track:
- multiple drug therapies
- different visit dates & timing of delivery
- individual dosing measures
- standard therapy deviations
... and with intuitive 'filtering' the system can decide up-front if a patient qualifies for your study, based on the timing of visits and delivered therapies.
Based on the input of your 'rapid collection" team you can:
- track timing of delivery
- see the impact of different dosage levels
- observe changes and treatment trends
- deliver accurate reporting
- key-in on outcome measurements and adverse events
Combination therapy may seem costlier than monotherapies in the short term - but have significant long term gains such as: lower treatment failure rate, lower case-fatality ratios, slower development of resistance and consequently, less money needed for the development of new drugs.
