    With VIDAL Sentinel, detect the risk of hospital prescriptions in real time.

VIDAL Sentinel, real-time monitoring of prescription risks

Powered by a data flow from the prescription software, biological analysis results and other patient variables (age, weight, gender), VIDAL Sentinel continuously analyzes prescriptions and calculates a risk score. Designed for pharmacy services, the application prioritizes the pharmaceutical analysis and allows you to improve and secure the drug management in your hospital.

VIDAL Sentinel is a class I CE marked medical device.


A continuous assessment tool

  • Data feed from the prescription software, biological analysis results and other patient variables (age, weight, sex);

  • Data analysis according to business rules that combine the notions of patient at risk and drug at risk;

  • Assignment of a systematically justified risk score for each file in order to organize pharmaceutical prioritization;

  • Automatic recalculation whenever one of the parameters changes (new prescription, new biological result).

Validated VIDAL business rules

  • Based on publications and risk assessment (mainly from the French Society of Clinical Pharmacy), the VIDAL scientific committee and the user community;

  • Can be used directly "out of the box" with a body of validated rules;

  • Relevant regardless of the evolution of the institution's booklet or the market (new commercializations) by relying on the drug's properties managed in the VIDAL database;

  • Locally weighted in order to adapt to the specificities of an establishment;

  • Integrating the notion of obsolescence of clinical data.

VIDAL Sentinel, an innovative application to improve the quality and safety of drug management.
