Warfdocs Web Tool Predicts the Maintenance Warfarin Dose

From Warfdocs website:

"Warfdocs (warfdocs.ucdavis.edu) is a point of care tool developed at the University of California, Davis to aid in the dosing of warfarin. It is currently available for the PalmOS platform as well as a web-based format.

Warfdocs for Web predicts a patient's steady state warfarin dose, as well as the effect of modulating doses on the time to steady state.

It relies on drug kinetic modeling and a Bayesian prediction algorithm, predicting appropriate doses of warfarin based on general patient characteristics and data from daily lab (INR) tests. Its intended audience is clinicians (physicians, pharmacists) who are initiating warfarin therapy.

It was developed by Terence Lin, MD and James Lee, MS."
