About Complienz

Complienz is about you and your customers. Complienz is a tool that can help you to provide a much better service to your patient, to ensure the return of your customer to your pharmacy.

Complienz is not only a drug interaction software program. It includes information such as label directions, side-effects, mode of action, warnings and special notes at the click of a button.

It can be integrated into an existing dispensing system, which makes it extremely user friendly and time-saving. Complienz explains the mechanism behind drug-to-drug interactions, so that it can make sense and you can form your own opinions and make your own decisions.

It is a great means of continued education. Because of the knowledge you will gain, you will be able to play a more pro-active role in the prevention of potentially harmful drug adverse effects and it will be easier to intervene when drugs are prescribed wrongly with the gained knowledge. Medical personnel will find it interesting and a useful tool.

If patient compliance is increased, not only will healthcare costs decrease, but the quality of life of the patient will increase. Complienz makes problem-solving much easier.

Complienz, as a software program, includes detailed information on how the cytochrome P450 enzymes work as approximately half of all drugs prescribed today are metabolized by this enzyme system.

Complienz is not only a drug interaction software program. We include in our program information such as side-effects, mode of action, warnings and special notes. We have drug-to-food interactions and the effect of smoking, caffeine and alternative drugs on prescribed drugs, but, we also equip the user with the knowledge of why and when it will have an effect.

Complienz can be integrated into an existing dispensing system. It can filter out the relevant information for the specific patient. Because of the integration into the dispensing system, drug-to-drug interactions also show with history drugs the patient is still taking. Because it is integrated, it is time-saving as the relevant information is accessible in an instant.

With Complienz integrated into your current dispensing system, a patient profile (for each individual dependent of a family) can be built. By making use of this option, the system filters out the diseases most probably relevant to the patient. The patient profile is also of use to a locum as he/she is immediately able to know what the patient is about, and can act accordingly.

Complienz explains the mechanism behind the interaction, so that it can make sense and will be experienced as being more trustworthy. In surveys done in Europe, it was found that pharmacists had more faith in their interaction programs when they received more information, and could form their own opinions and make their own decisions.

So while using Complienz, you will also be educated and will develop more skills. It is a great means of continued education. Medical personnel will find it interesting and a useful tool.

The Label directions as made available by Complienz, can be easily used by just copying it to the label and then altered as needed. The label directions will also remind the pharmacist what to counsel the patient about as e.g. food interactions are shown on the screen while entering the drug directions.

When using Complienz, a counseling pamphlet can be printed for the patient. It is extremely easy to print since it is part of the software. It is written in layman’s English. It contains all the drug warnings and food-interactions and the effect of smoking on drugs – all the things you are supposed to warn your patients about. It also tells the patient what to do when he should e.g. stop smoking. Better patient compliance will follow.

With Complienz, problem-solving will be made much easier – the drug-to-drug interactions do not only include for example plasma levels of the one drug that can be influenced by another drug, but it also displays when adverse effects such as bone marrow suppression, neurotoxicity, hepatotoxicity, pancreatitis etc overlap. You get a more complete picture of all the possible interactions.

Complienz includes detailed information on how the cytochrome P450 enzymes work. Almost no doctor and only a few pharmacists have received training on the CYP-enzymes, and knowledge of this enzyme system is crucial as approximately half of all drugs prescribed today are metabolized by this enzyme system. Because of the way this program is designed, it can ‘predict’ possible interactions although all the drugs were not tested for all of the possible interactions. You will understand what to expect, make alterations to drug dosages and will be able to counsel the patient accordingly.

Because drug-interactions and drug adverse effects increase healthcare costs, when using Complienz, lives and money will be saved as relevant and possible drug-to-drug, drug-to-disease interactions are pointed out easily and quickly. There can be better control over patient drug usage, and hospital admissions will decrease as the incidence of wrongly prescribed drugs will decrease. The success of drug usage hinges on patient compliance (how closely a prescribed treatment is followed), and if patient compliance is increased, not only will healthcare costs decrease, but the quality of life of the patient will increase.

Because medicine in general is such a huge subject, and nobody can know everything, and because dispensing the correct medicine is such a huge responsibility and a pharmacist is the last line of defense before a patient receives treatment, medical practitioners such as pharmacists experience a fear of liability – this fear can be greatly eliminated with Compliance. Complienz will give you more confidence when dispensing drugs. Because of the knowledge you will gain, you will be able to play a more pro-active role in the prevention of potentially harmful drug adverse effects and it will be easier to intervene when drugs are prescribed wrongly with the gained knowledge.

Complienz can be tailored and we can make changes as needed, until it is perfect for our needs. Every user’s input will count. Your input will count. Complienz will grow and become better and better and fulfill the needs of medical practitioners such as yourself.
