Optimizing drug therapy for populations and individuals

BestDose has evolved from decades of work. Please consider a donation to help support continued development. Thank you!

BestDose (formerly RightDose) is a Windows-based program that assists physicians and pharmacists in finding optimal doses for individual patients. It is a clinical tool that uses non-parametric, multiple-model Bayesian adaptive control to calculate doses that achieve desired goals, such as serum drug concentrations, with maximum precision and accuracy. We are currently working on the next major version of BestDose, which will be a completely new, web-based program. In the meantime, we still make the old version available.
