Medication errors can have serious consequences for patients, which is why it's important for healthcare professionals to have access to accurate and up-to-date information about medications.
The NHS medicine database, known as DM+D (Dictionary of Medicines and Devices), is a comprehensive resource that provides information on over 100,000 medications used in the UK.
CareSuccess, a leading provider of Electronic Medications Management Systems (EMMS), has recently announced that it has integrated with the NHS DM+D database.
This integration will give CareSuccess users access to the top 1000 most commonly used medications in the NHS, ensuring that they have accurate and reliable information at their fingertips.
One of the key features of the CareSuccess EMMS is its ability to reduce the risk of selecting the wrong medication. When a user begins typing the name of a medication, the system will automatically display a list of options based on the NHS DM+D database. This helps to ensure that the correct medication is selected and minimizes the risk of errors.
In addition to improving accuracy, the integration with the NHS DM+D database also helps to streamline the medication management process.
Healthcare professionals can quickly and easily access the information they need, saving time and reducing the risk of errors.
The integration of CareSuccess with the NHS DM+D database is a major step forward in improving the accuracy and reliability of medication information.
By giving healthcare professionals access to the top 1000 most commonly used medications, CareSuccess is helping to ensure that patients receive the correct medications at the right time. If you are a healthcare professional looking to improve the accuracy and efficiency of your medication management processes, consider using an EMMS like CareSuccess that integrates with the NHS DM+D database.
