Primary Care (Clinics)

With many millions of prescriptions generated each year in primary care clinics, there is a huge potential for medication error.

To support clinicians with their prescribing decisions and reduce the occurrence of medication errors, International Drug Knowledge is fast becoming a core component of many leading clinical systems across the region. It offers a wealth of benefits to clinicians working in primary care:

  • Enhances safer prescribing through a wide range of active clinical decision support alerts including geriatric precautions, indications and min/max dosing
  • Supports cost-effective prescribing by providing information on brands and generic equivalents
  • Acts as a vital electronic referential source when detailed information on a specific medicine is required
  • Assists primary care organisations with the collation and analysis of prescribing data, helping to ensure that regulatory guidelines are met.
