miniQ is a web based system that can be integrated with existing electronic medical record softwares. The miniQ system monitors drug use in elderly people, based on established quality criteria, and can be used to aid drug prescription and drug utilization reviews. The system is also accessible by physicians, nurses, patients, relatives, pharmacists and clinical pharmacologists, ensuring that drug-related problems can be quickly identified and resolved.
Today miniQ is implemented in several parts of Sweden. The goal of this new EIT Health project is to adapt and disseminate the miniQ system to other European settings, starting with UK and Spain. The work includes translating the softwares, adapting to other sets of quality criteria, national drug formularies and services and integrating with existing electronic medical record systems.
