Elsevier Expands Collaboration with ExitCare

Elsevier and ExitCare work together to help customers achieve meaningful use through a certified EHR Module

Philadelphia, PA, March 22, 2012 – Elsevier, the leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced an expanded collaboration with ExitCare, LLC, an enterprise-wide solution for patient education. ExitCare’s content already provides Elsevier customers with access to an expansive library of patient education information available in multiple languages, including the recent addition of ExitCare’s patient education content within Elsevier’s Clinical Pharmacology. Elsevier will also offer its customers a path to license the ExitCare software solution, which is the gateway to achieving Meaningful Use.

“We are excited to expand our relationship with Elsevier. Our content and technology products complement each other to address customers’ needs such as Meaningful Use, care transitions, improving workflow, patient empowerment and more,” said Roger Jacobi, President of ExitCare.

Named by independent research studies as the most complete and dependable drug compendia on the market today, Clinical Pharmacology provides comprehensive and current drug information through an easy-to-use interface, designed to find answers quickly at the point of care. Mosby’s Nursing Consult leverages content from leading nursing resources to help nursing professionals find answers to their clinical questions, bringing evidence-based, best practices to the point of care.
