EBSCO Publishing and Lexi-Comp Formalize Product Partnership to Enable Seamless Integration Between Products
Date:12/9/2008

EBSCOhost® Point-of-Care Databases, Including DynaMed™, Able to Provide Real-Time Linking to Lexi-Comp Drug Resources for Mutual Subscribers

Ipswich, MA (PRWEB) December 9, 2008 -- Institutions subscribing to DynaMed™, or other EBSCO Publishing (EBSCO) medical point-of-care resources, are now able to seamlessly access real-time information from their Lexi-Comp databases thanks to a formal linking partnership between the two companies. The arrangement allows hospitals and other medical institutions subscribing to DynaMed and Lexi-Comp to launch a search in DynaMed and link to their Lexi-Comp resources using the contextually relevant search information initiated in DynaMed. This new linking will result in faster access to the most current and relevant clinical information and improved clinical decision making at the point-of-care.

Contextual real-time linking from DynaMed to resources, such as Lexi-Comp® ONLINE™, allows linking to current and clinically-relevant drug information including Lexi-Comp's drug reference, drug interaction and hospital formulary drug list tools directly from DynaMed. Real-time, contextual linking ensures that users are accessing the best available information at the point-of-care. Since Lexi-Comp's team of pharmacists and physicians collect, validate, and publish new content daily, this new partnership ensures end users have the essential information they need to make key medical decisions.

The enhanced EBSCO linking mechanism connects users to external services, defined by the customer, and intelligently maintains the information requested by the end user when generating new searches in Lexi-Comp ONLINE or other external resources. Users are able to seamlessly and rapidly begin a search in DynaMed and continue to search in a Lexi-Comp resource without having to begin a new search. Users may also launch new searches in Lexi-Comp or access the main Lexi-Comp ONLINE page from within DynaMed.

EBSCO Publishing's Medical Director and DynaMed's Editor-in-Chief and Founder, Dr. Brian Alper, says, being able to easily link to related Lexi-Comp content from a point-of-care resource means that clinicians have even more information at their disposal. "A doctor searching for treatment options for a particular condition or for additional information about a particular medication is able to quickly navigate from DynaMed into Lexi-Comp accessing relevant drug interaction or drug formulary information critical to the clinical decision making process." Alper says the time savings and the importance of the content streamlines the process of finding the best answers to clinical questions.    

Enhancements to the DynaMed linking services allow hospitals to add up to 20 internal and external links to a new enhanced Search Other Service page. Subscribers may include links to their EMR systems, content portals and formularies, as well as internal protocol and guideline links.

Enhancing the integration between the Lexi-Comp drug reference and decision support tools with EBSCO Publishing's medical products via a formal partnership is a valuable complement to EBSCO's growing line of point-of-care resources which, in addition to DynaMed includes: Nursing Reference Center™, Patient Education Reference Center™, and the newly-released Rehabilitation Reference Center™.

The EBSCO support staff is available to enable the linking between the two companies. For more information institutions may contact EBSCO at information@ebscohost.com.
