Medical knowledge bases

for electronic decision support systems


Medication safety requires a wide variety of strategies to prevent errors and support drug prescribers and users. In this context, electronic information and decision support systems, based on suitable knowledge bases, play an important role. Such high-quality knowledge bases, that are used in digital support systems, are developed by the Medical Information Technology section in cooperation with our colleagues from the relevant pharmaceutical/pharmacological sections of the department. The quality-assured and verifiable maintenance of these knowledge bases is guaranteed through an electronic tool landscape that provides optimal support.


We develop electronic knowledge bases in close coordination with our experts in the relevant pharmaceutical/pharmacological departmental sections.


Electronic decision support systems must be based on up-to-date and high-quality knowledge bases to avoid false alarms and over-alerting without clinical relevance.
