athenahealth, Inc. and Epocrates Announce Two Point-Of-Care Innovations to Improve Providers' Access to Information in Moments of Care
Feb 11 14
athenahealth, Inc. and Epocrates announced two point-of-care innovations to improve providers' access to information in moments of care. Health care providers can leverage the power of Epocrates in the following ways: Directly within the athenaClinicals(R) EHR -- As of February 22, key drug monograph content from Epocrates' valued and trusted drug reference, Epocrates Rx(R), will be available as part of athenaClinicals, the most usable ambulatory electronic medical record (EMR) system, as rated by health care providers in the 2013 KLAS report on Ambulatory EMR Usability. As part of a new workflow, providers who use athenaClinicals will gain streamlined access to valuable information on dosing, contraindications, adverse reactions, and other key safety information for thousands of brand and generic drugs without having to leave their EHR interface. Additional sections of Epocrates' drug monographs will be introduced into athenaClinicals over time. Through the Enhanced Drug Interaction Features in the Epocrates App -- Epocrates has upgraded its InteractionCheck(R), the most valued Epocrates feature affecting prescribing changes, as well as its drug monographs (complete with a new Drug Interaction Overview section). Health care providers now have access to advanced, detailed profiles of a drug's interaction potential and risks to better determine why potentially harmful drug interactions occur, to more easily identify individual ingredients responsible, and to help make necessary adjustments or substitutions. These features are exclusively found in the Epocrates mobile app or on Epocrates(R) Online.
