FDB OptimiseRx®

Maximise prescribing quality and value
The only truly patient-specific medicines optimisation solution to deliver cost savings while driving up the quality of prescribing.

Delivering immediate budget impact whilst enabling local control

OptimiseRx combines national guidance and the best available evidence with locally authored formularies and policies.

The only solution of its kind to have full access to all relevant coded information in the patient record, ensuring that the guidance presented is truly patient-specific
The scope of OptimiseRx covers over fifteen thousand SNOMED and dm+d codes allowing algorithms to interrogate multiple inputs from the patient record.
