OrderView Simplifies CPOE for Long-term Care

First DataBank?s (San Bruno, CA) OrderView Med Knowledge Base is a computerized physician order entry (CPOE)-ready drug database for medication ordering and prescribing. The database introduces the concept of ?Orderable Med.? This concept refers to drug content that specifically supports CPOE applications. It enables clinicians to use drug descriptions as stepping stones or search targets for completing medication orders in the fewest possible steps. Orderable Med further reduces user scrolling, by quickly loading a short list of appropriate orders for the clinician?s consideration. Because the medication orders are generated based on patient parameters, the list is reduced to a minimum. 6N Systems, a New York?based long-term care software provider, has licensed OrderView Med Knowledge Base to be integrated into the electronic medication administration record piece of the 6N EMR, an electronic medical record for long-term care. 6N Systems will leverage the OrderView medication content to simplify CPOE for long-term care organizations and to help broaden the adoption of a technology shown to improve patient safety. With the OrderView Med Knowledge Base, 6N has been able to create a CPOE solution that will enable medication ordering consistency by allowing access to the resident?s medication information, thereby making it safer to administer, track, and reconcile medications.
