PDR and the iHealth Alliance Announce New Drug Safety Certification for EHRs
Date:5/8/2012

MONTVALE, N.J., May 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- PDR Network and the not-for-profit iHealth Alliance today announced a new drug safety certification program for electronic health record (EHR) and ePrescribing platforms designed to improve drug and patient safety, and reduce provider liability. The certification will allow healthcare providers to quickly and easily understand if minimum drug safety information and services are available in the EHR system they are selecting for purchase or using with their patients.

The new certification program – "PDR Certified" – will have standards set by the iHealth Alliance, a not-for-profit board made up of executives from U.S. medical societies, professional liability carriers, patient safety groups and liaison members from the federal government. PDR Network will administer the program and has provided the Alliance the use of its well-recognized brand for the new EHR drug safety certification.

"The use of EHRs and electronic prescribing has grown rapidly in recent years, driven by large federal and industry incentives," explained Nancy Dickey, M.D., the Chair of the iHealth Alliance and former American Medical Association (AMA) President. "It is vitally important that these systems include standards for drug safety functionality, and that these standards are easy for busy physicians to identify and understand – fortunately these goals are shared widely and are in sync with those called for by the FDA."

The certification criteria are modeled after the FDA's recently discussed goals for drug safety services in EHRs. Earlier this year Janet Woodcock, M.D., Director of the FDA - Center for Drug Evaluation Research, noted that EHRs have the potential to advance drug safety and efficacy, outlining four key areas of particular importance:

  1. Ensuring that full and up-to-date FDA-approved labeling is available in all EHRs,
  2. Delivering time-sensit
