Micromedex CareNotes Available Within the Iatric Systems Patient Discharge Module


Ann Arbor, MI — Thomson Reuters and Iatric Systems, Inc have collaborated to offer content from the Micromedex CareNotes® System integrated into the Iatric Systems Patient Discharge Module.

Hospitals use CareNotes, one of the Micromedex clinical evidence solutions from Thomson Reuters, to provide patients with educational information about all aspects of their care and health.
Iatric Systems customers can now access CareNotes content within the Patient Discharge Module allowing doctors, nurses, pharmacists and other healthcare professionals to quickly deliver important clinical discharge instructions to patients.

This solution enables healthcare providers to meet criteria outlined in the U.S. government’s Meaningful Use objectives, which require eligible healthcare professionals and hospitals to provide patients with electronic care information, including discharge instructions.

The new offering creates a fully integrated module that combines personalized post-discharge instructions and medication monitoring with the most trusted patient education content available to help clinicians provide patients with customized materials about their conditions, medications, treatments, and follow-up care.

Iatric Systems customers will be able to seamlessly access Micromedex educational materials from within their existing workflow, improving clinical performance as well as health outcomes and patient satisfaction.

“Clinicians need immediate access to evidence-based content in order to build customized post-discharge instructions for their patients,” stated Joel Berman, president of Iatric Systems. “Our integration with Micromedex CareNotes allows us to provide hospitals with quality content they can trust.”

The Micromedex CareNotes System supports every step in the continuum of care. With topics including diet, exercise and disease prevention and a host of “how-to” documents, CareNotes empowers patients to actively participate in their care, all while meeting Joint Commission and OBRA ’90 patient education guidelines.
“Electronic health records are changing the way that healthcare professionals and patients manage medical care and day-to-day health concerns,” said Thomas Hegelund, executive vice president at Thomson Reuters. “With the integration of CareNotes into the Patient Discharge Module, Iatric customers and their patients now have the tools to regain and maintain their health using information that is specific to their needs.”
