A drug database is integrated into the EMR. However, it is always possible to register or prescribe drugs that are not in the database by using “free typing”.
The advantage of using drugs present in the database is that it makes it possible for the software to detect drug duplications, interactions, indications, allergies and side effects.
A laboratory database is integrated into the EMR.
Laboratory values progression can be monitored using a comparative table or graphics.
The data present is fully encoded making it available for statistical analysis or interpretation by the EMR or medical cases.
