Patient database comparison
Antibiotic Kinetics© does not save patient data or keep a history of your pk consults. Antibiotic Kinetics© is a simplified pk dosage calculator only, it does not keep records.
Kinetics© and APK© each have an integrated patient database designed to keep a permanent patient history and record of consults. They differ somewhat in their database implementation.
APK© has two patient tables, active and inactive. Patients are discharged from the database when they are off service, but may be reactivated. Kinetics© patients are listed in a single data table.
Kinetics© saves serum level data for all consults, whereas APK© only saves serum levels from the most recent consult.
Both Kinetics© and APK© save a summary of each printed consult for reporting purposes.
