Targeted Drug Alerts with FDB Targeted Medication Warnings
Created by medical professionals for medical professionals
We use the latest clinical evidence to provide clinicians with information that is accurate, relevant, and aligned with best practice.

The FDB MedKnowledge database seamlessly integrates with clinical information systems and is used extensively by providers and regulatory organizations to support safer prescribing and dispensing. FDB MedKnowledge is also used by healthcare payers to streamline drug claims processing and adjudication.

With over 40 years’ experience, FDB has built long-standing partnerships with leading clinical system vendors. MedKnowledge seamlessly integrates into existing workflow and is used at the point of care as a trusted prescribing decision support tool, enabling clinical alerts and warnings that help to reduce prescribing errors.

Integrating MedKnowledge helps providers derive maximum value from an electronic health record (EHR) implementation and helps them to achieve the highest levels of EMRAM (HIMSS Analytics EMR Adoption Model).

How we can help you

For locations where FDB does not already provide a regional version of MedKnowledge, our international knowledgebase of clinical decision support can be used in association with a local formulary that is mapped to FDB’s clinical identifiers.

This has been successfully implemented in numerous regional healthcare solutions in the Middle East, the Far East and Europe.

Currently, FDB has tens of thousands of unique combinations of generic products that can be linked to a local branded drug. We can either provide mapping services or our customers can map the drugs themselves.

Our experts have worked on countless successful integrations and we’d love to help you.
