Abstract: This study was aimed at developing a new ordering menu based on an electronic medical record system and investigating its use. We included fields for order entry in which information regarding the name of the drug to be measured, date/time of sample collection, date of the last dose, frequency of seizures, nutrients used, administration method, dosing method, side effects, and a comment could be provided. The entry rates of these items could be easily identified in the new ordering menu. In the 2,457 orders examined, the entry rate for items such as “date of the last dose,” “method of administration,” and “dosing method” was >40%. Many comments were related to blood sampling points and details about the dosing method and administration. The newly developed ordering menu allowed effective collection of useful information for the analysis of drug concentrations in blood.
