Drug-Lab Interference Module™

Identifying drugs that may falsely alter laboratory test results.

A drug can falsely alter a laboratory test result by causing an analytic interference in a laboratory test. The Drug-Lab Interference Module identifies drugs that may falsely alter laboratory test results. This module can be used by clinicians to screen patient lab and drug therapy data, and to look up reference information on in-vitro drug-lab conflicts.

FDB Drug-Lab Interference Module Advantages:

  • Prospective Decision Support: When drugs are prescribed or lab tests are ordered, this module can help determine if there is a potential for analytical interference.
  • Retrospective Decision Support: When a lab test returns as abnormal or out of the normal range, the module helps determine if a patient's medication could have been a potential contributing factor or cause.
  • Identifies available alternative lab test methods that will not result in analytical drug-lab interference. Identifies drugs that may erroneously affect a given laboratory test result.
  • Provides supporting information that can help prevent abnormal lab results.
  • Enhances quality of care by eliminating unnecessary re-testing.
  • Expedites system implementation by using known and reliable drug knowledge with a controlled medical vocabulary with navigation to the standard Logical Observation Identifier Names and Codes (LOINC®) database.
