Deed #5: Medication screening tool

Everybody has the right to receive rational pharmacological treatment. This also applies to the half a million elderly Finns with multiple medications.

In 2015, DRA launched Feenix-lääkeseula, a medication screening tool designed to help nurses and physicians screen for problems related to the medication of elderly patients.

The software analyses the patient’s condition, symptoms and medication, and highlights symptoms which may indicate an adverse reaction. The tool also identifies overlaps in medication and allows a closer investigation to eliminate adverse effects“, explains Sirkka-Liisa Kivelä, professor emerita who contributed to the development of Feenix-lääkeseula.

The software is an add-on module to RAIsoft.net and it was designed in cooperation with Oy Raisoft Ltd.
