Integrate with EMRs

Add Evidence-Based Information into the Workflow

EBSCO Health’s products can be integrated with your EMR, making it easy for providers to access evidence-based information quickly and easily at the point of care. Physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants can access thousands of evidence-based clinical overviews and drug information and nurses can quickly look at nursing best practices, disease and condition overviews, images and videos. Our goal is to answer questions to improve patient care and outcomes.

EBSCO Health Makes It Easy to Integrate Evidence-Based Content into EMRs

Add a Referential Link

Hospitals can add a link from their EMR system directly to the resources contained in Nursing Reference Center, Patient Education Reference Center and DynaMed. Links can be displayed as an icon or a menu option on the EMR tool bar. This option is the quickest and easiest way to integrate content into your EMR system.

Provide an HL7 Infobutton

EBSCO’s content can also be accessed from an EMR system via Context-Aware Knowledge Retrieval (Infobutton). This option provides a standard mechanism for EMR systems to submit terms for searches to EBSCO databases.

Configure Access with EBSCO’s Web Service API

EBSCO’s nursing resources can be delivered via a real-time web service. Hospitals can use style sheets to allow content to be delivered with a customized look and feel.

Access Content via Contextual Search

Content contained in DynaMed can be accessed via the options described above, as well as through contextual search which allows users to click in specific areas of a patient record and pull up information regarding that topic from DynaMed. Contextual search is possible in many EMR systems and other medical IT applications, including MEDITECH and Epic.

When you can look another person in the eye and they thank you for saving their life, and you know you went the extra mile and did something right—that you utilized every tool at your disposal—that is a great feeling; second to none. The best part is you know that you didn’t get lucky, you applied the best science available. No longer should evidence and the EMR exist on separate islands of care. Technology allows us to bring them together and provide the highest-level quality of care for each patient, which leads to the ultimate finish line—improved outcomes.
