Technology today can ensure a patient’s medication history is readily available to each member of a healthcare team. No longer must pharmacists decipher hand-written prescriptions to guarantee their patients get appropriate medications.

A Drug Information System (DIS) enables access to a patient’s complete medication history, no matter who wrote the prescription or where a prescription was dispensed. When a patient is treated by multiple care providers, a DIS can help care providers to:

  • Access consolidated prescription histories
  • Ensure appropriate drug treatment and reduce costs associated with over use of inappropriate use of medications
  • Flag potential drug interactions and other contraindications
  • Diminish prescription drug abuse
  • Report adverse events to the agencies responsible

Gevity experts have aided numerous DIS projects, from standards development / refinement, to requirements, design, development, conformance / quality assurance testing and deployment.
