Optimising efficacy of botulinum toxin treatment with electronic data record in blepharospasm clinic

Author: Levin Vrhovec
ePoster Number: 290


Purpose

To improve efficacy of botulinum toxin (BoNT-A) treatment of essential blepharospasm and hemifacial spasm with electronic data entry and ad hoc data analysis.


Methods

A Redcap server was set up with data entry form tailored to specific needs of BoNT-A treatment. The objective was to achieve structured data that would allow ad-hoc data analysis in addition to simplify the patient data entry. We have set up a structured data entry form for the following parameters: toxin type, dosage, JRS (Jankovic Rating Scale) severity, duration of effect and side effects.


Results

We included patients that are regularly treated in our clinic. Electronic data entry significantly reduced administrative burden and more efficient treatment strategies were achieved due to analysis of various parameters on previous visits.
Ad hoc analysis allows instant statistical calculations of time intervals from the last injection, duration of effect, JRS severity dynamics and dosage patterns for all previous visits. A structured report with dosage and next visit date calculation is generated at the end of each visit. Tools needed for database integration with hospital information systems are already available in Redcap platform.
In addition, electronic data record generates structured data that can be easily used for retrospective statistical analysis, an essential tool for good clinical practice.


Conclusion

Structured electronic data entry allows more efficient treatment decisions due to ad hoc analysis of all previous treatment data and reduces the administrative burden in clinical practice.
