Norris Medical Library subscribes to both Lexicomp Online, the drug reference database and UpToDate, the evidence-based clinical decision support resource. Now, users can quickly and easily access the content from within both solutions. Linking between pharmacology content in Lexicomp to related disease-state content in UpToDate enables clinicians to instantly connect to the relevant point-of-care information they need to inform their decisions and enhance patient care.
Advantages of bidirectional access from Lexicomp to UpToDate include:
- Efficiency – Clinicians can easily access UpToDate from Lexicomp, or Lexicomp from UpToDate, without having to exit their workflow or open a new browser window; thus, they find the answers they need in less time.
- Greater depth – The combined Lexicomp and UpToDate resources provide an extensive knowledge base for clinicians seeking information to support diagnosis and treatment plans.
- Consistency – Lexicomp and UpToDate content is not just linked – its content is concordant and provides consistency and standardized care between physicians, pharmacists, and nurses.
