Micromedex is a product of Thomson Reuters for the most comprehensive, direct and complete answers to complex management solutions. Micromedex is currently used by more than 3,500 hospitals in the US and in 80 countries world wide. Providence Health & Services announced that it will switch to Micromedex solutions to support its clinical integration and clinical-based care initiatives.
Providence Health & Services is a 27 hospital not-for-profit system that serves communities in five states. Providence is planning to use Micromedex solutions for drug, disease, and toxicology reference, patient education, and neonatal drug dosing information integrated within their enterprise clinical information system. The advantage Micromedex offers is that Providence will not have to use multiple clinical systems, which it currently has. Instead, Micromedex should be able to provide evidence-based clinical content to its physicians.
Thomas Hegelund, Executive Vice President at Thomson quoted that “Health systems are moving toward fully integrated information systems in response to Meaningful Use requirements.” “As the quality leader in evidence-based clinical content, Micromedex is the clear choice for...
hospitals and health systems that need to integrate clinical content within their clinicians’ workflow.”
Micromedex 2.0 was released by Thomson Reuters in Dec 2009 and is now phasing out of 1.0 version from June 2011. There is also a iPhone version of micromedex available for smartphone users, to get more detailed information on micromedex, visit its website: http://www.micromedex.com.
