Lippincott Williams & Wilkins Adds Drug Identifier and Drug Interactions Guide to Lippincott's Nursing Advisor
Jan 15 13
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins announced that it has added new features including a Drug Identifier and a Drug Interactions Guide to Lippincott's Nursing Advisor. The new Drug Identifier covers thousands of drugs and contains more than 5,000 color images, organized by multiple descriptive attributes, to enable fast, accurate identification of patients' unlabeled medications. The update also adds a Drug Interactions Guide, which provides a fast and convenient way to look up interactions information for a single drug or between two or more specified drugs. Nurses can use it to view known interactions and to investigate interactions between drugs in specified contexts, such as patients with known drug allergies or with specific diseases or symptoms. The new Lippincott's Nursing Advisor Drug Identifier allows a clinician to enter any combination of pill identification criteria including imprint code, color, dose form, score and shape. In response, the program provides the matching drug or drugs along with detailed attribute information and a thumbnail picture of the pill. Similarly, the Drug Interactions Guide allows the clinician to enter multiple drugs, plus patient drug allergies, diseases and symptoms, gender, age, pregnancy and smoking status in any combination. Both of these Lippincott's Nursing Advisor enhancements are available immediately and are included in the base subscription price to hospitals and other healthcare facilities.
