EBSCO Publishing and Lexi-Comp Form Partnership

Dec 12, 2008

EBSCO Publishing and Lexi-Comp have formed a linking partnership, which allows institutions subscribing to DynaMed, or other EBSCO Publishing (EBSCO) medical point-of-care resources to access real-time information from their Lexi-Comp databases. The arrangement allows hospitals and other medical institutions subscribing to DynaMed and Lexi-Comp to launch a search in DynaMed and link to their Lexi-Comp resources using the contextually relevant search information initiated in DynaMed. Contextual real-time linking from DynaMed to resources, such as Lexi-Comp ONLINE, allows linking to current and clinically-relevant drug information including Lexi-Comp’s drug reference, drug interaction, and hospital formulary drug list tools directly from DynaMed. Users are able to search in DynaMed and continue to search in a Lexi-Comp resource without having to begin a new search. Users may also launch new searches in Lexi-Comp or access the main Lexi-Comp ONLINE page from within DynaMed.
