Community Pharmacy

Integrated into the leading pharmacy IT systems, First Databank's products help community pharmacists improve patient care, save time and money and future-proof their business against changing requirements.

International Drug Knowledge offers a breadth of clinical information and support to the community pharmacist including:

  • Active clinical decision support providing a number of checks including side effects, indications and contraindications to support pharmacists during the dispensing process
  • Pick lists  
  • Referential drug information, presented in a concise format, accessible whenever detailed information on a certain drug is required.

Using International Drug Knowledge in a pharmacy IT system may help to reduce dispensing errors and allow the pharmacist to spend more time with patients, thereby improving patient safety.

It also supports interoperability between systems as it enables the electronic transfer of prescriptions between the pharmacy and clinics via standard messaging.
