easyDOAC – compact, simple and reliable

Pharmacological information on the selection, prescription and use of drugs in one application: easyDOAC is a Progressive Web App (PWA) especially for physicians and pharmacists.

Pharmakologische Informationen zur Auswahl, Verschreibung und Anwendung von Arzneimitteln – kompakt, einfach und zuverlässig in einer Anwendung: easyDOAC ist eine Progressive Web App (PWA) speziell für Ärzt:innen und Apotheker:innen.


Specific filter functions support users in obtaining a well-founded overview of patient-specific dosage and interaction profiles of approved Direct Oral Anticoagulants (DOACs) in adults and in assessing associated risks. In addition, daily therapy costs and economic benefit assessments can be displayed.

Based on the officially approved current expert information, easyDOAC thus serves as a digital support for physicians and pharmacists.

And this is how easyDOAC works

  • Installation

    The PWA can be installed on a mobile device or desktop.

  • Set filter options

    At a minimum, the applicable indication and current renal function are required; optionally, additional patient characteristics (age, weight, creatinine) and potentially interacting concomitant medications can be entered to make the displays more specific.

  • The Result

    An overview of appropriate dosing regimens for the 4 approved DOAcs at the filters set, plus warnings (e.g., contraindication, avoid, use with caution, etc.) with management and monitoring information if special points need to be considered, and comparative information on daily therapy costs and G-BA benefit assessment.

Good to know: When calling up easyDOAC, the user confirms that he or she belongs to a medical professional group, i.e. that he or she is a doctor or pharmacist. If this is not the case, the system opens a confirmation dialogue and denies access to all functions and contents of the app.

What must be observed

  • The results are generated from rule-based access to a structured database.
  • easyDOAC does not offer a diagnosis, does not replace a physician’s therapy decision, and is expressly not intended for nursing professionals, patients, or their families.
  • In addition, a CHAD2DS2-VASc score calculator is integrated into the app to assess the risk of thromboembolism. Based on pre-existing conditions (chronic heart failure/left ventricular dysfunction, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, stroke/transient ischemic attack/thromboembolism, pre-existing vascular disease) and patient characteristics (age, gender), a score is calculated to estimate the percentage risk of stroke/year.
  • To assess the bleeding risk under anticoagulants, a HAS-BLED score calculator is provided, which allows an assessment of the individual bleeding risk based on patient characteristics (age), xenobiotic exposure (alcohol, NSAIDs or antiplatelet drugs), pre-existing conditions (arterial hypertension, abnormal renal or liver function, stroke, bleeding tendency) and previous experience with anticoagulants (labile INR values).
  • Finally, with the kidney module, the app contains a functionality that can estimate the creatinine clearance according to Cockcroft-Gault based on the input of age, gender, weight and serum creatinine of the patient.

Progressive Web App (PWA): Technical functions

The easyDOAC is designed as a PWA. How do PWAs work and what are the advantages for users?

  • Behavior

    As a website with the behavior of a native mobile app, the application works equally as a website and as an app, detached from the operating system.

  • Offline-Use

    The use is also possible without internet connection.

  • Use

    The installation is possible on mobile devices as well as on desktops.
