First Databank Releases Web-Based Customization Solution to Enhance Medication Ordering in CPOE
Feb 24 16
First Databank announced the release of FDB OrderSpace, a web-based solution that enables customization of medication ordering content in CPOE systems. The McKesson Paragon electronic health record is the first to deploy FDB OrderSpace with the goal of making ordering medications easier and more satisfying for clinicians. FDB OrderSpace is a web-based software tool that enables hospital informatics teams to customize the medication ordering content that is provided within FDB’s knowledge bases to optimally reflect the characteristics of the institution’s patient population and preferred practices, helping to maximize the utility of its CPOE system. The solution also tracks medication orders over time, so that customizations are recorded in an auditable change history record that all designated users at a hospital can view. Users can also review FDB updates to medication ordering content and compare these to their local customizations, ensuring all new clinical evidence is taken into account. Once customizations are made and published, they are stored in a custom file and incorporated into the HIS in a seamless fashion during a regular update process.

First Databank announced it has released FDB OrderKnowledge® Canada, a pre-built medication ordering drug knowledge base specifically designed to help make computerized provider order entry (CPOE) applications more intuitive and user-friendly. Now, with more widespread adoption of EHR systems across Canada, the widely-reported safety benefits of CPOE and e-prescribing can now be realized. With FDB OrderKnowledge Canada, clinicians are able to specify patient-specific medication orders quickly and easily because this drug knowledge is specifically designed to meet the unique challenges of CPOE with built-in drug concepts and identifiers that optimize system functionality and navigation capabilities. Organizations will also save tremendous amounts of time and money by cutting back on the thousands of staff hours required to prep general-purpose medication orders to work within their CPOE system.
