eMC dm+d

emc dm+d solutions provide the fastest and easiest way to access, search and update the information within the NHS Dictionary of Medicines + Devices (dm+d) making your information available throughout the NHS.

What is the dm+d?

The dm+d is an interoperability standard (ISB 0052). It ensures that diverse clinical systems can effectively ‘talk’ to each other using a common coded language for the transfer of medicines information. dm+d provides this common language using identifying codes with associated written descriptions; effectively it is a dictionary of descriptions and codes which represent medicines and devices in use across the NHS.

Why is dm+d important to Pharma companies?

Health and care organisations, system suppliers and pharmaceutical companies must comply with the standard by 30th June 2017. It is important that Pharma ensure their medicines information is correct on the dm+d as included products are available for use throughout the NHS and are able to be part of prescription reimbursement; if products are not on the dm+d they cannot be prescribed or dispensed.
