By now it is not a surprise, more and more EMR and EHR business owners and general managers are turning to Lexicomp to solve their drug information needs. In a few short years, Lexicomp has been the fastest growing provider of drug information to the EMR market. This didn't happen by accident. It came as a result of Lexicomp's three-legged trifecta approach to providing drug information to EMR and EHR developers -- of any size!
What are three aspects?
Top quality data
Elegant data structure with easy to use API's
The best customer and development support you can find anywhere. (It makes your work so much easier)
In addition to supplying the expected information such as drug-drug and drug-allergy interactions, adverse drug events, RxNorm mapping, generic drug lists, drug nomenclature, and more. Lexi-Data also offers an incredibly easy to use data structure and APIs! Although, perhaps more importantly, Lexicomp is unparalleled in its customer service and providing assistance in the development process. If you are developing a new EMR and need a drug information supplier, make sure that Lexi is on your list.
And if you are thinking about building your own ePrescribing module, I call your attention to a posting my colleague Matt Bennardo published last week:
As EHR vendors find their products growing and signing up more users, many start to think about moving from using a third-party eprescribing solution to building their own. The reasons for making this switch are many:
As your user base grows, eprescribing fees grow too
Bring features in-house makes it easier to respond to specific customer needs
A third-party solution is a risk, as you never can be sure what will happen in the market
One of the first steps in building your own eprescriber is to find a data provider who can supply you with medication lists and other information that Surescripts requires to certify your tool. Lexicomp is one such provider. They've been focused on providing drug data direct to clinicians for over thirty years, but now they can also supply you with database-ready information to power an eprescriber.
Lexicomp's customers have used their data to certify EMRs and EHRs with ONC testing bodies like Drummond, CCHIT, and Infogard. Their customers have also certified eprescribers using Lexicomp data with Surescripts. And best of all, Lexicomp's flexible pricing and easy implementation allows firms of all sizes to get up and running smoothly and quickly.
