3/1/2009 - Originally (in 2004) I wrote PedDrugDose to merely calculate doses.  Next, I added the ability to print prescriptions.  In my residency program, we adopted an EMR program we were required to use for printing prescriptions so I worked briefly on making PedDrugDose compatible with the EMR as it had no ability to calculate pediatric medication doses.  The best I was able to come up with was a feature where the sig would be copied into the clipboard when the user selected a dosing regimen after it had been calculated.  This helped some but it was not until recently that I once again addressed the issue of EMR compatibility with PedDrugDose.  At Skyline Family Practice, Practice Partner® is used.  I was able to add a feature to PedDrugDose which completely automates the creation of pediatric prescriptions.  This is done through Dot Codes - an entity which will make sense to users of Practice Partner® and which will also be meaningless to those who do not.  On installation, users are now prompted as to whether they will be using PedDrugDose with Practice Partner®, turning on the program features for Practice PartnerŪ compatibility if needed.  This makes the first EMR-specific compatibility worked into PedDrugDose.  I foresee adding more in the future as I receive requests and the information necessary to accomplish this.  For copyright and trademark information, please see this.
