The Database

SCHOLZ DataBank provides drug databases for the integration into doctor’s office and E-prescribing software to support the prescription of appropriate drugs for the individual patient including the identification and management of drug-drug interactions, allergies, duplicate therapies, side effects, contraindications and drug-disease interactions when prescribing. Pharmacy and consumer oriented systems are also supported and available on demand.
The platform of SCHOLZ DataBank is therefore a very comprehensive relational database where the content items are stored and linked to each other in complex network structures. All drug information is from reliable sources and is based on literature research, manufacturer data, and information from the FDA and similar European authorities. It covers more than 200,000 commonly used prescription and over-the-counter drugs published with the NDCCODE and package information by the FDA and contained in the RxNorm data set from the NIH. Several hundred thousand database records contain structured side effect, drug interaction, contraindication and allergy informations to support comprehensive drug risk control for the user. The unique classification and storage of drug properties open the door to overlook millions of polypharmacy scenarios and their risks within seconds using the MDDI and e²CP retrieval technology of SCHOLZ DataBank. More than 40 Years of experience in the field are the very solid basis to provide our customers the best and finest drug database technology.

The MDDI Calculator and the Revolution in Drug Risk Checking

SCHOLZ DataBank with its MDDI Calculator, moves drug drug interaction checking in polypharmacy away from the traditional model towards Precision Medicine.
What is driving this REVOLUTION in drug risk checking which turns the world of drug interactions into a completely new one. The traditional model looks at drug interactions as a phenomena characterized by the relation of pairs of drugs. In poly-pharmaceutical scenarios this model produces frequent alerts. The user has then to puzzle together in a tedious and time consuming process what is important and what not, and what is really the compiled essence. Alert fatigue is a recurring unwanted consequence of long interaction listings as displayed below, too.
Therefore the “pair-of-drugs” model has been abandoned. This insight and new pharmacological knowledge resulted in modelling “MDDI” multi-drug-drug-interactions to give the user a tool to assess immediately the dose adjustment of the drugs most affected by multiple interaction mechanisms. Given a polypharmacy medication the simple question for each drug should be answered immediately: what is the impact of all the other drugs together on one drug, for example the impact on simvastatin or aripiprazole through bupropion, amlodipine, fluconazole, or clarithromycin?

The MDDI model is also ready to take regard of the pharmacogenetics and the renal function of the patient with CKD. 
Therefore,with only a few clicks the personalized individual drug risk analysis in complex patient scenarios of polypharmacy with multiple drug drug interactions becomes possible and, therefore, SCHOLZ DataBank is much more than a simple drug interaction checker: it is a tool to make decisions based on the individual patient vitals, diagnoses, pharmacogenetics and risk factors and therefore opens the door to Precision Medicine.
E-Prescribing icon


The doctor's edition of SCHOLZ DataBank, known also as DIT Drug Database, is Surescripts approved and supports e-prescribing in doctor’s office software. 
Therefore SCHOLZ DataBank contains the NDCCODE related package information including federal and statal DEA schedules as well as NCPDP conform NCIT dosage form classifications and codes needed to support Surescripts requirements when E-prescribing. An interface to Surescripts formulary service is also available for SCHOLZ DataBank users as well as support in Surescripts certifications.
