BUSINESS MODEL
FOR IMPLEMENTATION OF A NEW MEDICAL INDUSTRY SERVICE
I. Introduction

The Medication Compatibility Profile Data System, (MCPDS) is a database information service

primarily and directly intended to benefit the patients-customers of physicians, pharmacists, and other health care professionals, and;

significantly reduce the prevalent incidence of the potentially harmful or fatal errors associated with improper consumption schedules of medications-supplements-herbs.

A lack of cross-referenced medication-supplement-herb monograph data and

the present lack of any computer applications to integrate such a cross reference to the dosage

frequency schedule for multiple applications of medications-supplements-herbs,

on an individual and customized basis,

gives rise to the danger of improper consumption of such substances. Such dangerous circumstances may lead to potentially damaging or fatal mixtures of medications-supplementsherbs.

MCPDS will address and enhance the ability of - physicians - pharmacists - health care professionals - to provide accurate and customized directions for the safe consumption of pharmaceuticals - supplements - herbs;

MCPDS will expand the value and availability of the information and directions for the safe, proper and effective consumption of - prescription medications-supplements-herbs.

MCPDS will sort, compare and analyse - medication - supplement - herb monographs, in conjunction with prescription dosage directives in order to produce a customized medicationsupplement-herb consumption schedule for multiple substance therapies.

MCPDS will distinguish between similarly sounding, and similarly spelled medication names to help prevent mistake.

MCPDS will promote safe scheduling of the intake of medications-supplements-herbs - in consideration of all available monograph data and provide patients-customers with informative monograph reports.
