Hi Order Entry design folks.
For Chemotherapy Ordering, we have a requirement to be able to alert users when a particular drug (or class of drugs) may have a lifetime maximum dosage, and to otherwise be able to utilize this for better decision support and patient safety.
I’m interested in opinions on where this might best be represented in the data model. Some possible ideas:
On DrugIngredient.maximumLifetimeDose/maximumLifetimeDoseUnits (not sure if DrugIngredient is used at all currently)
Drug.Concept represents ingredient; Optionally this Concept is in a ConceptSet representing the Class of Drug; This Concept or ConceptSet has ConceptAttributes storing maximumLifetimeDose and maximumLifetimeDoseUnits
