Siemens Pharmacy provides comprehensive support for pharmacist ordering as well as distribution, clinical, and management activities. It helps healthcare organizations maximize pharmacy resources, improve departmental workflow, and ensure safe and effective medication therapy. As an integral component of the Siemens Medication Management Solution, Siemens Pharmacy provides features that support CPOE order validation, robust clinical decision support, and interdisciplinary communication to help clinicians optimize the entire closed-loop medication use process.

According to Siemens, its pharmacy system provides tools that the pharmacist can use to provide clinical conflict screening capabilities such as allergy checking and drug-to-drug interactions. It can also help improve communication from the pharmacy to the bedside and provide a common view of medication data between pharmacists and nurses.

Siemens says that its pharmacy system combines proven departmental and clinical tools to provide an enterprise-wide healthcare information environment. According to the company, the environment connects clinicians, administrators, and processes; simplifies workflow; and provides access to a unified patient record. The system helps providers reduce errors and miscommunications that can occur when departmental applications remain "siloed."
