One Step to Goal
aRx Statin Advisor is an evidence-based clinical decision support system (CDSS) designed to guide clinicians in their selection of the most effective statin and dosage regimen for each patient with high blood LDL-cholesterol (low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, LDL-C).
Until now, no such tool has existed. Clinicians have traditionally used a costly and time-consuming trial-and-error process to choose the ‘right’ statin and dosage from among seven commercially marketed statins, each available in multiple doses.
With aRx Statin Advisor, approximately 40 demographic, clinical and lab variables for each patient are automatically extracted from the patient’s electronic medical record (EMR).
The algorithm compares the patient’s results against those of millions of patients who have been treated with statins. aRx Statin Advisor provides a matrix of statin-dose combinations in descending order of the probability that the patient will reach his/her personal LDL-C goal. aRx Statin Advisor can be reliably and accurately operated by trained non-physician healthcare personnel (e.g., PAs, RNs, LPNs), saving valuable time for physicians.
aRx Statin Advisor’s precise, personalized One Step to Goal™ approach significantly increases the probability that a clinician will select the most effective statin-dose combination the first time for each patient. As a result, using aRx Statin Advisor can reduce costs while delivering improved healthcare outcomes faster.
