VIDAL Expert is a program that contains comprehensive information on different prescription and over-the-counter drugs. It is developed for use by private medical and dental practitioners and assists them with their patients by managing patient records, providing medication information, and other tasks. With this program, doctors and dentists will be informed of when patients are given prescriptions and what dosage, patient file information, and precaution management, among others. This ensures that patients are always prescribed medication best suited for their condition.
VIDAL Expert provides doctors and dentists with comprehensive information not only on drugs but on medical devices, personal care products, nutritional products, homeopathic remedies, and even veterinary pharmaceuticals as well. The program provides users with data on hospital-specific medication and generic drugs. In addition, doctors can show their patients the pictures of over-the-counter products they can purchase.
One of the key features of this program is its rapid drug search function, which makes use of six criteria: classification, appearance (the form and color of the drug prescribed), brand name, pharmaceutical manufacturer, substance, and indications. These are the information usually found in the literature that accompanies every product. The program also enables users to integrate patient file information, such as weight, age, medical history, and allergies, so that drugs may be prescribed accordingly.
