CEO of TRHC’s New Research & Development Institute to Present at National University of Singapore
Dr. Turgeon will detail how TRHC’s clinical decision support system harnesses big data and science, including evidence-based clinical data, patient-specific data and pharmacogenetics, to rapidly assess and prevent medication risks. This approach has been used to establish the risk of medication-related adverse effects – and their association with medical expenditures – in more than 1.5 million patients.
According to the US Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA)
“We have found that morbidity and mortality related to adverse drug events is a problem in the U.S. and abroad,” said Dr. Turgeon. “I am honored to have the opportunity to share with my colleagues in Singapore the methods that have been developed over 20 years of scientific research. Our approach uses pharmacokinetic, pharmacodynamic and, when available, pharmacogenomic data within TRHC’s proprietary risk stratification engine and risk score algorithm. The medication risk visualization that we have developed enables action to be taken for immediate risk reduction, which is evident in the outcomes data.
“Pharmacists are the primary users of our tools, in collaboration with physicians,” he continued, “and are able to modify the medication profile to reduce risk, most often by changing time of day, or by suggesting medication alternatives. We have demonstrated outcomes including reductions in hospitalization, emergency department visits and medical costs. We hope to educate potential users in Singapore to empower them to see similar results in their patient population.”
Dr. Turgeon is internationally recognized for his excellence in research and pharmacy education. As CEO of TRHC’s new
