    Drug knowledge that thinks like a physician.

    In principle the idea is simple: Your Computerized Provider Order Entry (CPOE) drug system needs to serve the needs of the clinician, not vice versa. It’s making that actually happen in practice that’s more easily said than done. Unless you’re building on a drug knowledge solution that allows you to take advantage of the industry’s most dependable and workflow-friendly drug knowledge base.
    FDB advantages for CPOE:

    Multiple Access Points provide best-practice-based CPOE-centric drug identifiers representing all the logical ways to think about a drug to enable the manipulation of data to fit user requirements.
    FDB OrderKnowledge (formerly OrderView) simplifies the creation of new medication orders with the fewest possible steps with physician-friendly dosing guidance to ensure medication orders are patient-specific every time.
    The extensive capabilities of FDB OrderKnowledge can also be used to dramatically reduce the time needed to build the order catalogue for CPOE.
    Pre-built pick lists facilitate medication ordering and improve user experience by helping reduce orders to a few keystrokes or as few as one or two clicks.
    FDB medication decision support solutions enhance decisions by addressing considerations like PRN reasons, dose adjustments, relevant calculations, and discharge instructions.
