Are you heavily involved in making the critical decisions for EMR development and the need to include the best drug information, along with the best vendor support?
Several weeks ago I wrote:
Are you the owner or manager of an ambulatory EMR company? What keeps you up late at night? Worried about getting your product to the market as quickly as possible and keeping your costs under control? Worried about certification? No doubt you have some thoughts about reducing medical errors by including the best drug information and internal built-in logic. More and more EMR and EHR business owners and general managers are turning to Lexicomp to solve their drug information needs.
(Note: The Lexicomp solution Lexi-Data referenced in this post has been replaced by newer Medi-Span solutions as of January 2013.)
In a few short years, Lexicomp has been the fastest growing provider of drug information to the EMR market. As I said in a previous post:
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 offers an incredibly easy to use data structure and API's and most 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.
