  • STRIPA The STRIP Assistant is a web application that I developed during my PhD research. It is a decision-support system that aids physicians with conducting medication reviews. Originally, it was developed for use in Dutch primary care, but in the OPERAM project it has been extended to support multiple sources of decision rules, and several multiple languages.
