Cambridge University Hospitals Improve Patient Safety with FDB Multilex® and Saves 2,500 Bed Days per Year, Equivalent to almost £1 Million of Savings

Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, a Global Digital Exemplar Trust, have recorded measurable benefits, including improved patient safety and efficiency savings, as a direct result of their electronic patient record (EPR) system and FDB Multilex implementation.

Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest in the UK with approximately 1,000 beds and over 9,000 employees. In 2014 it became the first NHS Trust to implement the Epic electronic patient record (EPR) system, integrated with FDB Multilex, as part of its eHospital digital programme to provide high-quality patient care.

FDB Multilex provides medication clinical decision support and integrating this data into an EPR and e-prescribing system enables active medical checking against a patient’s medical record, delivering real-time clinical alerts and warnings during the prescribing process.

  • Improve patient safety and quality of care
  • Spend less on avoidable admissions/readmissions
  • Derive maximum value from an EPR implementation
  • Achieve the highest levels of EMRAM (HIMSS Analytics EMR Adoption Model)

“We selected FDB Multilex as our data provider due to its experience of working with Epic in the USA. It’s a proven UK medication database which allowed us to be dm+d compliant from go-live”
