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.
