An open platform to promote decision support

Sunrise Pharmacy

Seamlessly Integrated Workflow for Optimized Medication Management

Sunrise Pharmacy™ is a full-featured pharmacy information system that provides hospital pharmacists with total control over the medication management process. Built on the Sunrise Clinical platform, Sunrise Pharmacy gives pharmacists real-time insight into patient information and caregiver decisions across the enterprise, wherever medication is being prescribed, dispensed or administered.

Sunrise Pharmacy is a seamless component of a true closed-loop medication management system. A shared, common electronic health record benefits everyone involved in the medication management process, enhances the transition of care information, and optimizes clinical decision support from prescribing through dispensing and to medication administration.


Sunrise Pharmacy facilitates fast, accurate pharmacy workflow and centralized management over a pharmacy’s operations from a single application.

The solution includes:

  • Streamlined workflow, facilitating the management of many complex tasks from a single screen.
  • Automated work queue that prioritizes orders and allows flexible sorts based on patient acuity.
  • Advanced clinical decision support to screen for medication contra indications.
  • Centralized pharmacy management that generates reports indicating which items should be stocked at various floor-stock locations.
  • Order-level intervention, allowing pharmacists to document decisions and perform cost-avoidance calculations for better outcomes.
  • Smart selection dispensing engine, powered by a unique algorithm that shows pharmacists the best product fit based on location, cost, use and waste.
  • Electronic messaging between the pharmacist and nurse to improve communication while reducing phone calls to pharmacy and expand options for medication replacement, crediting and re-bill.
  • Tall man lettering on labels to prevent medication name mix-ups.
