IPSWICH, Mass. and ANN ARBOR, Mich., June 23, 2015 – EBSCO Health and Truven Health Analytics™ today announced that Micromedex® Medication Management and Lab Recommendation resources are now featured in DynaMed Plus™, a cross-platform evidence-based clinical decision support tool for physicians and other medical professionals introduced earlier this month. DynaMed Plus provides clinicians with the ideal blend of evidence and expertise to help them determine optimal patient care paths. The newly integrated Micromedex content in DynaMed Plus provides clinicians with deeper resources to help better inform prescription decisions, medication management strategies and treatment decisions as a result of lab tests in the course of patient care.
“Adding the well-known and trusted drug monographs, advisory screenings, IV interactions and lab recommendations, products from the Micromedex Clinical Knowledge Suite, to our already deep knowledge base gives caregivers a powerful tool to keep current with medication management and disease management strategies,” said Betsy Jones, chief content officer and vice president of Medical Product Management, EBSCO Health. “Physicians need this strong, constantly updated platform at their fingertips in today’s busy healthcare environments.”
DynaMed Plus features Micromedex drug monographs from Truven Health, which include dosing recommendations, and medication safety information, including interactions and cautions. DynaMed Plus users can also access Micromedex lab content showing indications for tests and reference ranges for lab results. The combination of Micromedex evidence-based resources and DynaMed Plus creates a powerful reference for clinical decision support.
“We are excited to offer Micromedex trusted evidence to DynaMed Plus clients within the content of their clinical decision support platform,” said August Calhoun, general manager of provider solutions for Truven Health. “This partnership benefits patients and physicians alike by allowing clinicians to leverage industry-standard Micromedex drug and lab resources when and where they need it to make informed, precise care delivery decisions in line with evidence-based practice.”
