NHS Calderdale CCG implements FDB’s OptimiseRx and achieves patient safety and cost savings benefits

NHS Calderdale Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) covers 25 GP practices and has a registered population of more than 213,000 patients. The Medicines Management team successfully deployed OptimiseRx solution in 2017 and have seen high levels of clinician and end user engagement using the solution.


The Medicines Management team at NHS Calderdale CCG were keen to share important clinical safety messages with their GPs and prescribers (such as information on red and amber drugs) while at the same time realising cost savings across prescribing. They identified a need to upgrade from their previous point of prescribing software, which triggered too many non-patient specific alerts for clinicians and were more likely to be rejected for that reason. The team was looking for a solution that provided patient specific alerts and that was integrated into the primary care clinical systems used across the CCG.


OptimiseRx is the only solution that delivers patient-specific prescribing information, integrated with prescribing workflows, supporting medicines optimisation at the point of care. Learn more about OptimiseRx
