New and Enchanced Lexicomp Online Features

Lexicomp enhancements

Lexicomp Online has enhanced and added several new features to help make the database usability more streamlined.

  • Comparative efficacy data is now accessible through a direct link within the core drug monographs. Previously, a separate search was necessary, so this should help ease workflow when researching.
  • Wolters Kluwer Clinical Drug Information has partnered with the Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM) and its Drug Shortages Task Force to supplement Lexicomp drug shortage information. Monographs for drugs with current shortage issues will now include links to SCCM’s recommendations for alternatives.
  • Lexicomp has expanded its Medical Calculator module, adding over 40 new calculators developed per customer requests. Some of the new calculators include Glomerular Filtration Rate Estimate and Benzodiazepine Dosing Conversion. There are now over 130 calculators available through Lexicomp.

NJH patrons can access Lexicomp Online through the library’s homepage and see additional notes on these and other new features.
