An agreement between MEDITECH and medical content provider EBSCO Publishing intends to provide discharged hospital patients with evidence-based discharge instructions. Discharge instructions from EBSCO's Patient Education Reference Center (PERC) will now be available on MEDITECH Health Care Information System (HCIS) later in 2010, with individual departments getting PERC access.
EBSCO and Lexi-Comp have also expanded their partnership to allow EBSCO to sell Lexi-Comp databases. While users of DynaMed and other EBSCO offerings have been able to access information from Lexi-Comp databases. Now, searches in Lexi-Comp resources such as Lexi-Comp ONLINE, can pull content from DynaMed and EBSCO's Nursing Reference Centerinto Lexi-Comp results.
EBSCO and Lexi-Comp have also enacted a new joint sales partnership.
