GoldStandardDrugDatabase

Supporting exceptional patient safety, IT and operation value

While it’s common to assume all drug databases are alike, in reality, key differences have a crucial impact on quality. Elsevier’s Gold Standard Drug Database (GSDD) takes a modern approach to remove cumbersome and costly limitations for our customers.

Solve Your Challenges

Supports Patient Safety Protection – Outdated information puts clinicians at a disadvantage when treating patients and could lead to medication errors and increased costs. That’s why Elsevier updates data and makes it available daily to ensure critical information is made available quickly. When a new drug launches or an important change is announced, clinicians can access all pertinent information quickly, avoiding dispensing delays and potential risks to patient safety.

Gain Maximum Speed and Control in Data Integration – Lift the strain on your IT resources. Gold Standard Drug Database is built from beginning to end for ease of integration. And GSDD’s nimble technology lets you control your own update schedule-automatically - based on what makes sense for your business.

Reduce Manual Work and Operational Inefficiency – Use your internal resources for endeavors that drive your business, rather than for fixing drug data problems. Gold Standard Drug Database lifts operational burdens and costs by removing the need for manual effort such as data mapping and creating workarounds.
