Micromedex 2.0 Now Available

Micromedex 2.0, the newest version of the authoritative clinical information system, is now available to our users. This much-improved platform is more intuitive, with easier navigation through its “360° View Dashboard.” The dashboard presents a bulleted list of more commonly accessed aspects of drug information including drug images. Further details on a specific drug are provided in the DrugPoint® Summary or DRUGDEX® Evaluations. Additional highlights of the new Micromedex 2.0 interface include:

  • A useful “auto-fill” function in the search box, offering a choice of completed words after a few letters are typed
  • Enhanced searching
  • Easily accessible tab-based tools, such as calculators, and drug comparisons, compatibility, and interaction checkers
  • Mobile access via mobileMicromedex for the iPhone®, iPod Touch®, BlackBerry®, and other mobile devices

The Micromedex Drug Information application is now available free-of-charge for download on iPhone®, iPod touch®, and iPad™ devices. This app contains summarized drug information and is backed by the same editorial process as Micromedex. All content is stored on your device, so no Internet access is required.

MICROMEDEX 2.0 is accessible from the HSLS home page under Quick Links. For questions, please contact the Falk Library Main Desk at 412-648-8866 or e-mail Ask A Librarian.
