Elsevier Infobutton now links from EHRs to key content in Clinical Pharmacology
Tampa, FL, November 28, 2012 – Elsevier’s Gold Standard, a leading drug information provider, announced today that its Clinical Pharmacology drug reference solution will be accessible through the recently launched Elsevier Infobutton, a one-touch service that links from an EHR (electronic health record) to evidence-based content in Elsevier electronic information solutions. Institutions with an EHR can license and then link to Elsevier’s comprehensive drug reference content in Clinical Pharmacology through clinical terms in the patient record.
The Elsevier Infobutton helps providers achieve EHR certification for Stage 2 Meaningful Use by supporting these HL7 (Health Level Seven International) Infobutton standard use cases:
- Context--sensitive links that reference information to support clinical decision-making
- Links to patient-specific education resources
“The Elsevier Infobutton demonstrates real value at the point-of-care by simplifying access to clinical decision support information and patient education materials that improve care and patient outcomes,” said Marianne Messer, President, Elsevier’s Gold Standard. “Our goal continues to focus on providing solutions that elevate the standard of care through easily-accessible, user-friendly, evidence-based drug information.”
The Elsevier Infobutton is offered free-of-charge to customers with an EHR who also license other Elsevier electronic information products, including Clinical Pharmacology, Mosby’s Nursing Consult and Mosby’s Skills.
