Information processing device, method, and program
This technology relates to an information processing device and method, as well as to a program, making it possible to obtain higher-probability information pertaining to taking medicines. An extraction unit extracts a prescription date and the number of prescription days for prescription drugs from medical prescription information recorded in a recording unit. When, among the prescription drugs, there are prescription drugs that have the same prescription date but a different number of prescription days, an operation unit performs division on the basis of the numbers of prescription days. When the result of the division satisfies a specific condition, the operation unit regards the prescription drug as a persistent-effect drug. A medicine-taking-schedule-generation unit regards the number of prescription days of the sustained-action drug as the number of prescription days of the other prescription drug that was prescribed on the same day is this sustained-action drug; and generates, from this number of prescription days and prescription date, medicine-taking schedule information indicating the medicine-taking schedule of the sustained-action drug. This technology can be applied to an information processing device.

Information processing device and method, and program
This technique relates to an information processing device and method, and a program, by which more probable information relating to medication can be obtained.
An extraction unit extracts, from dispensing fee bill information recorded in a recording unit, information including the dispensing dates, numbers of days of prescription, dosage form codes of drugs. A specification unit specifies the dosage forms of the respective drugs from the dosage form codes of the drugs. With drugs, such as an internal medicine, in predetermined dosage forms as drugs to be previously processed, a medication schedule creation unit finds the medication periods of these drugs on the basis of the dispensing dates and number of days of prescription, and using the medication periods, finds the medication period of a drug other than the drugs to be previously processed. This technique can be applied to an information processing device.
