News Image

To stay informed and source answers to clinical questions, physicians have traditionally turned to textbooks, attended conferences, and, in more recent years, visited the Internet. Hospitals, private practices, medical associations and even health-related websites seeking to support clinicians' needs can now provide quick access to important drug information such as dosing, interactions and adverse reactions and patient education information by incorporating Epocrates® MedSearch.

Epocrates, developer of the widely used PDA medical software, has made its drug search tool available for any health organization to post on their website. The convenient, easy-to-install search tool saves healthcare professionals time by allowing them to instantly look up clinical information for more than 3,300 drugs. The Epocrates MedSearch tool also turns patient visits to medical provider's homepages into a free interactive experience, enabling them to learn information such as how to take their medication and potential interactions or side effects.

Why:    
By having immediate access to up-to-date clinical information through the websites they use most often, healthcare professionals can rely on a trusted (and free) source for clinical information to provide better patient care. Additionally, patients can bookmark their medical provider's website as a valuable resource to better understand their treatments and become more involved in the continuum of care. Epocrates MedSearch is an innovative tool that adds value and 'stickiness' to any external or internal website, giving users another reason to visit more often and spend more time on it.

How:     
The drug search tool can be added to any website in just two easy steps. Visit http://www.epocrates.com/medsearch to add it today.

The California Medical Association was among the first to enhance its website with this application. See the new tool in action by visiting http://www.cmanet.org/.
