【Abstract】In this study, DtHealth Hospital Information Management System and PASS PharmAssist (Medicom) were used to collect the medical records of all inpatients diagnosed as coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in Wuhan Third Hospital. The statistics were based on the data of the cases treated with Ganlu Xiaodu Decoction, including demographic statistics, clinical characteristics before medication, the outcome after medication, and efficacy of combined medication. Excel 2003 and SPSS Clementine 12.0 software were used to conduct statistics on the included cases, and the Apriori algorithm and association rules were used for the association analysis on combined medication. A total of 131 cases of COVID-19 were treated with Ganlu Xiaodu Decoction combined with Chinese and Western medicine. All of the patients were cured and discharged. The drug combination mainly included Ganlu Xiaodu Decoction, abidor, Lianhua Qingwen, moxifloxacin, Qiangli Pipa Distillate, vitamin C, diammonium glycyrrhizinate, pantoprazole, and Shufeng Jiedu. There was a certain regularity and effectiveness in the treatment of COVID-19 infection patients with the combination of Ganlu Xiaodu Decoction and other drugs, but the rationality and safety still needed to be further verified.
