Stat Health Systems partners with First DataBank

Stat Health Systems has announced a new partnership with First DataBank (FDB), a provider of integrated drug knowledge bases and electronic clinical decision support solutions.

Designed with Australian general practice in mind, Stat Health Systems’ product, "Stat", is a fully integrated clinical and practice management solution incorporating electronic prescribing with enhanced clinical decision support and Medicare billing administration.

Under the partnership arrangement, Stat's drug data and clinical decision support are being provided by FDB. FDB’s clinical decision support rules are designed to help reduce the risk of medication errors by providing active clinical screening at the point of prescribing. When a doctor wishes to prescribe a medication, FDB’s clinical decision support system checks the patient's electronic health record for drug-to-drug interactions, contraindications and precautions, allergies, and duplicate therapy.

Ian Threlfall, Managing Director and Software Architect, Stat Health Systems, explains: “Stat is a state-of-the-art physician desktop system which utilises the latest in software development tools to produce an innovative and intuitive application. We wanted to offer our users more than standard drug reference information, so we chose to partner with FDB in order to provide the advanced clinical functionality which is already in use by clinicians around the world.”

Speaking about the partnership, David Flavell, President, FDB International, said: “We are proud to be working with Stat Health Systems. As the first system provider in Australia to integrate our electronic clinical decision support, we believe they now have a strong competitive advantage in the region.”

During it 25 year lineage, FDB has attracted customers from the UK, North America, the Middle East, Africa, and the Asia Pacific region. Its Australian office, located in Tasmania, provides clinical and technical expertise to customers in the Asia Pacific region.
