HMS Pharmacy, from Healthcare Management Systems Inc., is a fully integrated clinical information system that provides access to all vital pharmacy functions and supports a wide variety of practice settings. According to the company, the application offers clinical decision support, best practices, and workflow tools designed to advance the practice of pharmacy and evidence-based medicine, increase efficiency, and improve patient care and safety.

HMS Pharmacy's integration capabilities allow the free-flow of data into other HMS applications, including CPOE, eMAR, patient accounting, and clinical documentation, features that help support pharmacy best practices by providing timely access to vital signs, lab data, and other critical patient information. In addition, the platform can interface with all the leading drug cabinet vendors.

HMS Pharmacy can also improve patient safety with a closed-loop medication management system that ensures seamless coordination across the continuum of patient care. The application automatically monitors medication order entry through a comprehensive drug database and has multiple safeguards that support safety goals, including patient and medication identification with barcode scanning. Identification of the clinician also can be ensured via secondary authentication with biometrics.
