Lloydspharmacy use First DataBank Europe's clinical decision support for CoMPaSS

First DataBank Europe : 19 July, 2007  (New Product)
First DataBank Europe (FDBE) has successfully integrated its Multilex Drug Data File (Multilex DDF) into Lloydspharmacy's new dispensing system, CoMPaSS (Complete Medication and Medication Support System).
The system has been developed in order to support the expanding role of pharmacists and to provide improved clinical checking and is currently being rolled out to Lloydspharmacy stores across the UK.

Lloydspharmacy is the largest community pharmacy operator in the UK with over 1600 pharmacies located primarily in the community and in health centres. FDBE is the UK's leading provider of drug knowledge bases and active clinical decision support software and provides all the clinical checking within CoMPaSS.

The new checking functionality will support pharmacists in their dispensing and new prescribing roles and includes the following checks: drug-drug interactions, sensitivities, contraindications and precautions, drug doubling and therapeutic doubling.

FDBE also provides links to Patient Information Leaflets on drugs and appliances. With over 20 years' experience of maintaining, developing and implementing drug knowledge bases across the entire healthcare spectrum, FDBE has unrivalled expertise in the field of clinical decision support.

Gary Feary, IT director at Lloydspharmacy said: 'We chose to work with FDBE because of their level of knowledge and experience in drug related clinical decision support. Patient safety is paramount to us, so it was essential that we use the UK's leading drug database to provide the clinical checking within CoMPaSS.'

Keith Kirtland, sales and marketing director of FDBE says: 'Our integration into CoMPaSS is extremely important to us as it allows us to work with one of the leading players in the pharmacy market. We are delighted to be able to extend the reach of our clinical decision support in this key sector.'
