Abstract:  Health systems adopt one drug formulary in hopes of facilitating safe and effective drug use, decreasing drug inventories and pharmacy costs. In 2011, Franciscan Alliance began implementing an electronic health record (EHR) with computerized provider order entry (CPOE) and evidenced-based order sets (EBOS). Drug formulary standardization was one means to prepare for this change as it would provide the foundation to standardize safe and effective medication practices across health systems. This presentation reviews the planning and implementation of the Drug Formulary Standardization Project and provides an example process for maintaining a system-wide master drug formulary. 

Learning Objectives:

     1.    Describe the benefits of having one master drug formulary across a health system.
     2.    Describe a successful process for creating and implementing a system-wide master drug formulary.
     3.    Describe a successful process for maintaining a system-wide master drug formulary.
