A message from Darren Nichols, Managing Director, FDB UK.
Over the past 35 years, our medicines optimisation and decision support solutions have led the UK market and we have also been a leader within the wider digital health community. Many consider us to be the company that pioneered the drug knowledge movement.
Today, I am pleased to announce that we have rebranded to FDB (First Databank). Our new brand identity reflects our heritage within the First Databank portfolio of solutions. FDB is the leading provider of drug knowledge that helps healthcare professionals make precise decisions. With thousands of customers worldwide, FDB enables our developer partners to deliver actionable solutions that help improve patient safety, quality, and healthcare outcomes.
In the UK today, our market leading solutions FDB Multilex and FDB OptimiseRx enable thousands of clinicians and healthcare professionals to deliver improved clinical decisions and patient outcomes:
• FDB Multilex powers clinical decision support in electronic patient record systems across the full spectrum of healthcare settings.
• FDB OptimiseRx is the most advanced and widely used patient-specific medicines optimisation decision support system in NHS primary care.
• We also have exciting future plans with new solutions on the horizon.
Going forward, our UK offices will continue to be part of the Hearst Health network, bringing both solutions from FDB and several other companies within the Hearst Health network to customers in the UK, Middle East and other parts of the world.
For a complete overview of our solutions and services please take a look around our new website. Welcome to FDB!
