Benefits

  • One-click access to Lexicomp Online drug reference within the Order Entry allows physicians and other prescribers to conveniently review the entire spectrum of Lexicomp drug information — including drug interactions and adverse reactions; dosing for specific populations, like pediatric, neonatal, geriatric, pregnancy, breast-feeding and obesity; and drug ID — without having to leave the EMR
  • One-click access to Lexicomp Online drug reference within the MAR allows nurses, advanced practice nurses, and other caregivers to review drug administration details, physical assessment and patient monitoring, and patient education — without having to exit their workflow
  • Information available at the point of care enables clinicians to efficiently access the information without disrupting patient care
  • The Clinical Drug Information publishing model of concise, clear, relevant drug information helps clinicians find the answers they are seeking quicker than using encyclopedic resources — although Lexicomp Online still allows a deeper dive into research-oriented details when more information is required
  • No updates or downloads required, as Epic links take users directly to Lexicomp Online, a Web-based resource updated on an ongoing basis
  • Supports Meaningful Use requirement of using Context Aware Knowledge Retrieval HL7 standards (Infobutton) for retrieval of reference information
