The audit is conducted in the context of clinical diagnoses, treatment regimens and other characteristics of the treatment process, among the doctors of 16 specialties in polyclinics and hospitals on a regular basis. The modul works in 28 cities of Ukraine. The calculation is based on extrapolation of sample data using cluster analysis and hierarchical models. 



The subject of the RxTest study is a quantitative and qualitative analysis of the structure of drug prescriptions among doctors of various specialties in polyclinics and hospitals.



Operating principles 


The survey of Ukrainian doctors ensures the regular collection and the receipt of questionnaire data. Doctors personally fill out online questionnaires at The questionnaires contain issues related to general patient data: gender, age, type of visit, type of prescription, the patient’s diagnosis and treatment regimen. About 1300 doctors participate in the survey every month. An additional source of prescription records is the data from the medical information systems (MIS). This allows for a larger sample and more detailed information that is more relevant to the objectives of the project. The information is entered into a database and indirectly, through information processing experts, is systematized and unified into reference guides.
