EMAR

Because you can’t paper over patient safety.

There are about 700,000 reasons annually—the estimated U.S. number of adverse drug events—for the increasing use of the electronic medication administration record (EMAR) to support inpatient care. With paper and other non-digital records prone to being incomplete, misread, or even misplaced, nurses need a way to help ensure that medications are properly administered and tracked. Along with access to the kind of relevant drug knowledge that’s essential to effective integrated case management.

FDB advantages for EMAR:

  • Fueled by FDB drug knowledge solutions, systems allow information to swiftly move from the prescribing physician to the pharmacist to the bedside nurse.
  • Nurses can see the exact order and then navigate to patients’ electronic medication administration records that prompt workflow-appropriate actions and alerts.
  • Integrating FDB MedKnowledge (formerly NDDF Plus) and FDB OrderKnowledge (formerly OrderView) into your system promotes more accurate medication administration records, charting, and reconciliation.
  • Drug knowledge content structures facilitate compliance with standards for bedside barcode scanning
