    • activity reports, periodical registrations and targeted indicators
    • the exchange of experience and presentation of model projects
    • swot analysis and important conclusions
    • tools provided by the collected case reports and the summarised indicators into five areas: clinical, service, team, process and financial indicators

Processing the Data of the Activity Reports


the risk of treatment induced adverse events

by monitoring the therapy courseand the patients compliance therapy


the clinical effect of medicinesusing the most effective treatmentfor each type of patient


the expenditure for pharmacological treatments

trying to provide the best treatment alternativefor the greatest number of patients

  • Results
  • The pilot projects start a process of change within the hospital organisation with a consciousvision development around a secure, qualitative and cost-controlled pharmaceutical care.
  • The core competencies of the new hospital pharmacist have been named and a few activities of clinical pharmacy have already embedded in the present working process: drug anamneses, release letter...
