Using Data Warehouse to Discover the Relation between TW-DRG and Pharmacology
This research explores the relation between TW-DRG and pharmacological information by using the concept of data warehouse as a basis. It is hoped to assist doctors, under the condition that patients’ rights will not be affected, to replace the high-priced pharmaceuticals with the pharmaceuticals which are low-priced yet with the same pharmacological and pharmacodynamic effects, in order to reduce the medication cost in medical institutions and hospitals. From this result, we learn that the differences among doctors’ medication habits can be offered to hospitals and doctors for policy analysis on medication. Also, doctors can make appropriate adjustments in medication acts and find out the replaceable pharmaceuticals so that the pharmaceutical cost can be lowered.
