Micromedex CareNotes Available Within the MEDITECH Health Care Information System
Date:1/19/2010

ANN ARBOR, Mich., Jan. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Thomson Reuters and MEDITECH have collaborated to offer content from the Micromedex CareNotes® System integrated within four applications of the MEDITECH Health Care Information System (HCIS) — Emergency Department Management, Physician Care Manager, Oncology, and Patient Care System.

Hospitals use CareNotes, one of the Micromedex clinical evidence solutions from Thomson Reuters, to provide patients with educational information about all aspects of their care and health.

MEDITECH customers can now access CareNotes content within their workflow, streamlining the process of finding, delivering, and documenting personalized and relevant patient education in the hospital.    

This solution meets the criteria defined by the Certification Committee for Healthcare Information Technology requiring hospital information systems to generate education material for medications, diagnosis, procedures, and tests that is tailored for the patient.

The new offering combines solid integration technology with the most trusted patient education content available to help clinicians provide patients with evidence-based, understandable, and accurate materials about their conditions, medications, treatments, post-discharge activities, and ongoing care.

MEDITECH customers will be able to seamlessly connect clinicians directly to relevant Micromedex education content at any point in the care process. This enables physicians, nurses, and pharmacists to help their patients take a more active role in their recovery, all without disrupting their workflow.

"Integrating CareNotes into the MEDITECH system gives our customers direct access to a leading content suppliers' comprehensive patient education materials without leaving their clinical system or altering their workflow," said Hoda Sayed-Friel, vice president of marketing at MEDITECH. "This new offering allows our customers to meet strict patient education guidelines and establish an electronic audit trail, all while providing patients easy-to-understand information regarding every aspect of their care and health."

The Micromedex CareNotes System supports every step in the continuum of care. With topics including diet, exercise and disease prevention and a host of "how-to" documents, CareNotes empowers patients to actively participate in their care, all while meeting Joint Commission and OBRA '90 patient education guidelines.

"Access to fully integrated patient education materials from within the hospital information system is increasingly important," said Thomas Hegelund, executive vice president for the Healthcare & Science business of Thomson Reuters. "MEDITECH customers can now have the highest quality education materials for their patients, readily accessible by clinicians from within their clinical workflow."
