About Us

Who we are.
We're a story that began more than four decades ago.

Which is when we started publishing a quarterly magazine of drug prices. On actual paper. Since then, we’ve become the leading provider of clinical and descriptive drug knowledge that’s integrated into healthcare information systems around the world. Our knowledge has been tried, tested and trusted by millions of physicians, pharmacists, nurses, claims adjudicators, consumers and other decision-makers from every segment of healthcare. But we’re much more than that.

Expertise
We’re experts at our craft.
With a team of highly credentialed clinicians, knowledge specialists, and IT wizards, our team offers an unmatched depth of experience in successfully developing, maintaining, and implementing fully integrated drug and medical device knowledge.
Teamwork
We’re believers in “whatever it takes.”
That’s how we turn customers into partners, and transactions into relationships. The result: satisfaction ratings that prove we exceed customers’ needs and continuously raise the bar. We understand that to produce quality outcomes, knowledge specialists, IT systems, and medical decision-makers must work together seamlessly.
Quality
We’re quality fanatics.
We use Six Sigma performance methodologies in tandem with real-time quality control to deliver the extraordinarily reliable and consistent content that creates unflagging confidence and unshakable trust among our customers, their customers, and healthcare information system users around the globe.

We’re innovators who embrace new thinking.

Which is why we’ve continued to create comprehensive, configurable, and innovative knowledge solutions to meet current and emerging needs. On the immediate agenda: making medication alerts more meaningful. Giving clinicians the knowledge tools they need to reduce the risk of opioid-related overdose and addiction. Helping patients better understand and adhere to medication instructions. Not to mention, dynamically improving decision-making across the entire continuum.

Innovation
A case in point: replacing medical device chaos with clarity.

Even beyond our historic focus on drug knowledge, we’re offering a breakthrough medical device knowledge platform to transform how healthcare identifies, utilizes, tracks, and analyzes everything from stents and catheters to medical supplies. Our goal: to eliminate the chaos and inefficiency of information that currently commands the entire hospital supply chain.

Vision
We’re propelling population health, personalized medicine, and whatever comes next.

In fact, right now, we’re creating a new “patient first” approach to drug decision support. Developing genetics-based medication care guidance. Exploring cloud-based information exchange. And turning seamless interoperability from aspiration into reality.

And, we’ve only just begun.

All of which brings us to our last point, call it the thread that knits our story together from basic beginnings 40-plus years ago, to our bright shared future: whoever you are, whatever your objective, you can count on FDB to proudly play our part—big or small—in providing the essential knowledge that supports both healthcare IT systems and the decision-makers who use them. You see, we have a vision of a healthier world and a mission based on one singular conviction:

When knowledge becomes more powerful, the impossible becomes achievable.
