Visualization of drug interactions for supporting medication review


The number of elderly patients with multimorbidities has considerably increased since recent years. These patients are often polymedicated and at higher risk of safety incidents due to polypharmacy. To reduce polypharmacy, one solution is Medication review (MR). MR aimed at optimizing drug treatments, is unfortunately not very frequent in practice. Indeed, consulting the properties of 5-20 drugs in parallel is a cognitively complex task. It is therefore necessary to develop software for supporting MR. The existing tools only list alerts concerning drugs and their interactions. The objective of our work is to facilitate the pharmacist's access to the medical knowledge necessary for drug interactions. Using visual analytics, we propose an interactive tool that synthesizes information on drug interactions. It shows an overview of drug treatment and make it visually accessible by the pharmacist to facilitate MR.
