Press Release Basic
Bad Vilbel, 2018. The supply of medicines to the population faces a particular challenge: there are countless drugs and active ingredients that can unfold unpredictable interactions when combined. Another problem is multiple revenues from drugs that may contain similar substances or substances with similar effects. Only a database that bundles as much information as possible available on the pharmaceutical market and allows automatic comparison of the data can ensure optimal supply.
The information service provider in this special area is DACON GmbH, founded in 1989. Today, the company based in Bad Vilbel, Germany operates [pharmazie.com], one of the largest database network in the medical-pharmaceutical sector. The system bundles information about drugs and drugs from 35 databases and 50+ countries as well as about 1,700 medication-relevant diagnoses.
In addition to drug information and interactions such as interactions or intolerances, [pharmazie.com] includes personal parameters in the consultation support assessment (“Clinical Decision Support”). Such parameters are among other gender and age as well as existing allergies and illnesses. By means of the traffic light display (“C A V E-Check”), the system gives the go-ahead or warns if necessary of interactions and risks. In this way, it supports, in a matter of seconds, in particular the medication consultation in the affiliated pharmacies.
Quality assurance confirmed by Stiftung Warentest
The success of the consulting support confirmed the test victory of the German Internet pharmacy, a user of [pharmazie.com], in a pharmacy comparison test of Stiftung Warentest (5/2014). The German Internet pharmacy recognized as the only one out of 38 tested pharmacies all interactions and risks. In addition to pharmacies, pharmaceutical wholesalers, online healthcare services, health insurance companies, physicians, pharmaconsulting companies and medical supply stores are other typical users of [pharmazie.com]. The pharmaceutical industry in turn uses the database for market observations.
[pharmazie.com] integrates information from the ABDA database with ABDA article tax, drug list, RED LIST, Yellow List, Austria Codex, Codex Galenica and numerous other national drug databases. Several monthly updates ensure that the database is always up to date. Usage access exists as a system-integrated service, as an online database or as a monitoring service. The diverse connections include pharmacy software, electronic patient records, hospital information systems, mobile devices, practice administrations, health insurance systems, and web portals and shops.
Usage Types of [pharmazie.com]

Online Pharmacies, Pharmacy Chains, and Pharmacies

Health insurance companies, in turn, check regulations and billing for accuracy and to exclude safety risks, for example in screening projects, the chronically ill and patients over the age of 65 or with multimedia.
The pharma / pharmacy wholesaler
The pharma / pharmacy wholesaler provides [pharmazie.com] pharmacy services that can be used to identify German medicines for international prescriptions and can feed their own data into customer information systems.
