Follow FDB First Databank on :

In the wake of the pandemic, we have seen it all, the spiraling global public health crisis and the incapability of healthcare systems to tackle a global case load of never-before-seen proportions. But most importantly, it heightened the healthcare providers’ need for specific medical knowledge to make precise decisions regarding appropriate medication and swiftly respond to such disastrous times. Of all the factors contributing to help healthcare professionals gain adequate medical knowledge, digital medical solutions in the form of clinical and descriptive drug knowledge platforms have emerged as an essential pre-requisite. Numerous researchers are proposing novel methods for medication based on drug databases containing a wide variety of information.

Against this backdrop, FDB (First Databank), a leading drug and medical device database provider is on a quest to help healthcare professionals make precise decisions using integrated drug knowledge from innovative platforms. “We are advancing medication decision support with smart drug databases and patient adherence solutions,” states Dr. Mehmood Syed, Middle East Regional Managing Director of FDB.

Hospitals and healthcare providers in the Middle East are increasingly searching for a unified and up-to-date formulary that helps them guarantee medication safety and improve the quality of patient outcomes. On that note, FDB Meducation, a unique solution from FDB can help improve medication adherence and patient satisfaction. It delivers simplified medication instructions to all patients and becomes an integral part of the entire process of prescribing, dispensing, and administrating medication. As a cloud-based solution, FDB Meducation can be embedded directly in the electronic health records or pharmacy management system workflow.

FDB is currently working on significant enhancements for FDB MedKnowledge, an application framework that provides medication decision support and care guidance using a drug knowledge database, built specifically for the Middle East market.

It is a clinically adaptable IT solution with enhanced usability to help reduce medication errors and prevent adverse drug events. FDB MedKnowledge smoothly integrates into electronic patient record (EPR) and e-prescribing systems to support active clinical checking against a patient’s medication record, offering clinical staff, the support and information required to safely prescribe the most appropriate medications depending on the patient’s condition.

Continuous enhancement and top-quality measures to drive differentiated solutions are the key factors driving FDB to be coveted as the most preferred drug knowledge provider in the Middle East. Amid a plenitude of success stories, Dr. Syed recalls an instance wherein FDB helped one of the biggest PBM companies across the region establish a rule engine which automates their claims processing functions and significantly reduces their cost for resources. Multiple integration options in FDB MedKnowledge drug database have made it easier for them to finalize a project in a very short term. Meanwhile, using FDB MedKnowledge, they were able to adjudicate a much larger volume of claims, more efficiently while ensuring patient safety and processing accuracy.

Building on numerous success stories, FDB is ready to expand its presence across the Middle East with its array of exclusive solutions. “Our goal is to not only support healthcare facilities to make the right decision while prescribing and dispensing medications, but to also enhance their internal workflow, data transfer and reporting mechanisms both internally and externally,” concludes Dr. Syed.
