Sunrise Pharmacy, from Allscripts, is a full-featured pharmacy information system that provides hospital pharmacists with control over the medication management process. According to Allscripts, Sunrise Pharmacy improves quality and safety in the medication management process, provides for greater efficiency and productivity, and improves operational margins with smarter inventory control.

According to Allscripts, Sunrise Pharmacy is used by more than 100 hospitals to reduce medication delivery time and improve continuity of care and care quality. The Sunrise system integrates all workflows and processes related to medication management, including ordering, verifying, manufacturing, and dispensing. It also incorporates all interdisciplinary documentation and clinical data for the generation of pharmacy-specific rules, alerts, and reminders with clinical decision support. In addition, it supports various automation interfaces, allowing for different distribution models, and provides management features such as charging, reporting, and intervention documentation. That, Allscripts says, helps save time and control costs.
