Neonatology Solutions

Neo-weight prediction tool

Neo-prescription tool

Neo-dose correction tool

The main objective of this initiative is to develop apps and tools for neonatologists at Universitäts-Kinderspital beider Basel, Switzerland.

Neonates in intensive care units (ICUs) are highly vulnerable to suboptimal drug prescriptions. Drug dosing in neonates is complex and needs to be optimized on a daily basis. Prescription errors are frequent (up to 10% with junior physicians in ICUs) and result in overdosing or underdosing, which in turn affect clinical outcomes.

Advances in health technology have brought opportunities for creating bedside decision support tools, including applications for smartphones and tablets (apps). Ownership of smartphones and tablets by medical professionals is >80%.
