Track 18: Computer Applications in Pharmacy


Drug management (making, changing, adding, and removing data in patient files to generate reports), drug data, records, and files, as well as business information are all handled by computers in pharmacies. The use of computers to gather and compare data to produce an accurate study is extremely beneficial to the area of pharmacy. Computers are commonly utilised in industries such novel drug development, drug design analysis, medication production, and hospital pharmacies. The creation of cutting-edge varied hard and software has made drug research, developing, manufacturing, and analysis virtually conceivable. The primary duty of computers is to receive information, store it, process it, and disseminate it, and this constant flow of information demonstrates effective operation.

Computer use in retail pharmacies

• Giving the patient a receipt;

• Keeping track of financial transactions;

• Placing small orders for things via electronic transfers;

• The creation of different analyses for the number of prescription handles and cash amounts each day, each week, and each month;

• The estimation of profits and the financial rational analysis

• Printing out billing and payment information is often used for inventory control.

• Records of various drug data, i.e., drug data information; whenever drugs or medicaments are added to the stock or otherwise removed from the stock, the stock position is immediately updated.

• The comprehensive drug information needed to answer patient questions about toxicology, adverse drug responses, and drug-drug and drug-food interactions can be obtained using computers.

• Drug Bank Data Base provides thorough Computer-aided drug design (CADD) is a procedure for announcing new treatments. It is said to as a unique and advanced drug developing process.

• The medicinal chemist has the opportunity to create new molecules and increase the effectiveness of their action on the basis of updated graphical software that is already in use or feed data.

Pharma Conference and Expo

Computer use in hospital pharmacies

storing each person's information; professional supplies; records of pharmaceuticals supplied to inpatient and outpatient patients; information about patients' records; and patient monitoring (blood pressure, pulse rate, temperature) etc.

Storage and retrieval of data

• Computers used in hospital administration assist with data storage and retrieval because there will always be modifications. It is common to see the clinical and nursing staff, beds, operating rooms, intensive care units, pharmacy departments, radiological services, etc. during the patient admission procedure.

• As soon as the patient is hospitalised, a computer keeps track of and stores information about the diagnosis, medications, demography, clinical data, etc.

Storage and retrieval of data

• An information system is one that brings together the public and information technology, which is very appealing and beneficial to them.

• Pharmaceutical organisations use a variety of information management technologies in their operations to increase the likelihood of success and boost production efficiency.

• As computer technology has advanced, applications have enabled the systematic analysis and management of biological data, which is helpful for examining biological processes with the purpose of improving the healthcare industry.

• Bioinformatics has emerged as a key instrument for the creation of standardised computer organisations because it aids in the implementation of data and transforms it into effective therapies.

• Bioinformatics also created novel drug molecules using the receptor-based pharmacophore tool, which generates pharmacophores by optimising structural targets at the protein level at a specific binding site. This was done in order to obtain a set of ligands with notable activities for use in virtual screening.

Computers are required to spread this pharmacoinformatics, i.e., to disseminate the data/information and knowledge to the general public. This developing or emerging technology is increasingly important to the pharmaceutical industry. Pharmacoinformatics includes neuroinformatics, bioinformatics, immunoinformatics, genoinformatics, metaboloinformatics, and healthinformatics, which are used as a foundation for drug discovery.

• The use of information processing in the clinical setting for medical billing, scheduling patients and resources, and patient care is the emphasis of medical informatics.

• Clinical informatics is the use of clinical decision support systems that offer feedback and guidance to healthcare service providers in order to maximise patient compliance at the pharmaceutical level. A pipeline for medical discovery and investigation has been created using "in silico" research informatics, from basic science to care delivery.

• The ability for quick learning health applications to support biomedical research with safety as the top priority is made possible by the in-depth analysis of medical information developments in informatics to the primary health care sector.

• A digital platform for medical research that ensures the accurate evaluation of medical data and the ability to draw insightful conclusions will be built using open access data and data sources among the health care information.

The most recent and original information technology is pharmacoinformatics.

Diagnostic labs: Manual processes required a lot of effort and time, whereas automated computerised tools can complete a variety of jobs with precise results.

Computer-assisted education

Digital libraries are essential to pharmacy field education because they keep students up to date on the most recent developments in drug research and new treatments for diseases.

Computer assisted learning is becoming a feature of pharmacy education in order to easily access and organise the material. Videos of two-way dialogue and simulation approaches aid in the self-evaluation of the decision-making process. The ability to access and reuse the presentations multiple times will undoubtedly assist the students in carrying out their activities efficiently, safely, and quantitatively wisely.

Clinical trial administration

The crucial stages of modern drug development include preclinical research and clinical trials, which assess the medicine's pharmacological potential as well as its toxicological risks. Below are a few examples of computer programmes that help to guarantee the safety therapeutic window for the majority of drug candidates.

Control of adverse drug events

However, because of poor access to the post-marketed data of the recently launched drug molecules, new treatment approaches are being explored as a result of the race among pharmaceutical companies to produce novel drug molecules for difficult-to-treat diseases. At the beginning of treatment, several negative medication reactions went undetected. The 1938 passage of the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act increased drug safety.
