The medication database of the Netherlands

The G-Standaard is a database that holds information on all registered medication in the Netherlands. The database is maintained by the association of pharmacists (KNMP). This information contains details on identification, composition, dosage, allergies, contraindications and drug interactions of medications.

Prescriptor integrates this information in the prescription process to create an effective prescription for the purpose of the digital communication and univocal transfer in the chain of care.

Based on patient-specific characteristics, which Prescriptor links to the electronic health record during the prescription process, digital warnings (alerts) are generated in the case of relative contraindications or medication interactions. These alerts come with further guidance for action for the health care professional.
