Best Practice Safer prescribing Cost saving

Optimise Rx is a clinical decision support solution which integrates with GP systems to deliver patient-specific messages at the point of care that ensures appropriate, cost-effective prescriptions.

Trusted, patient-specific guidance that is valued by prescribers

Optimise Rx is the only solution that is tailored to the medical record and takes into consideration current and previous medications, morbidities, observations and measurements to support prescribers to make the safest, most clinically appropriate prescribing decision.

Optimise Rx uses hundreds of data-sets to devise clinically relevant, best practice prescribing messages within the prescribing workflow of EMIS Web and SystemOne.

  • Promotes clinically effective prescribing and reduces unwarranted variation without interrupting the normal prescribing workflow
  • Helps healthcare professionals and Medicines Management teams manage formulary compliance and understand where variance from local guidelines occurs



The knowledge base is continually maintained by the Optimise Rx team of clinicians and researchers with the support of Medicines Optimisation teams locally.  It is in line with current safety, best practice and cost saving guidance.  Optimise Rx content is taken from local policy and guidance plus a wealth of nationally recognised, evidence based sources including:

  • GMMMG formulary, policy and guidance
  • Best practice guidance from NICE, QIPP and others
  • MHRA drug safety updates
  • Prescribing safety indicators from the Kings Fund, RCGP and PINCER Trial
  • START and STOPP criteria
  • Latest drug tariff pricing
