CPOE-Ready Medication Order Strings

FDB OrderKnowledge leverages the power of FDB MedKnowledge, and uses patient context to define smart medication order strings for computerized provider order entry (CPOE) to be faster, more intuitive, and more user-friendly for clinicians.

  • Promotes patient safety by creating smart medication orders, keeping pick lists short with minimal scrolling
  • Simplifies CPOE deployment by including doses and frequencies, IV to PO conversions, and renal and hepatic adjustments
  • Reduces clicks for ordering clinicians

Streamline Your Organization’s Customization

  • Save your hospital time and money by accessing proven, pre-built, integrated CPOE content
  • Keep content current and streamline maintenance
  • Realize cost and time savings by eliminating staff hours required to prep medication orders for use in the CPOE system

Easier, Smarter Medication Orders

The chance of an error being reduced when using CPOE, according to a 2013 study published in JAMIA.


Ohio State University Medical Center reduced medication order processing time through the use of CPOE.

If OrderKnowledge had not been available, we would have had to build something similar on our own. The fact that we were able to embed the FDB database, build out a formulary, and have order sentences available to our clients was a tremendous value proposition to us.
