A Visual Decision Support System for Helping Physicians to Make A decision on New Drugs

Abstract : When new drugs come onto the market, physicians have to decide whether they will consider the new drug for their future prescriptions. However, there is no absolute " right " decision: it depends on the physician's opinion, practice and patient base. Here, we propose a visual approach for supporting this decision using iconic, interactive and graphical presentation techniques for facilitating the comparison of a new drug with already existent drugs. By comparing the drug properties, the physician is aided in his decision task. We designed a prototype containing the properties of 4 new drugs and 22 "comparator" drugs. We presented the resulting system to a group of physicians. Preliminary evaluation results showed that this approach allowed physicians to make a decision when they were lacking information about the new drug, and to change their mind if they were overconfident in the new drug.
