New Database Designed to Streamline Nursing Efficiency, Reduce Medical Errors

September 18, 2007 — EBSCO Publishing has introduced Nursing Reference Center (NRC), a point-of-care tool for nurses to provide relevant, evidence-based medical information, which can be integrated into any electronic health record (EHR) system to streamline nursing efficiency and reduce medical errors.
NRC features the CINAHL Nursing Guide, including 3,600 evidence-based lessons on procedures including Quick Lessons - clinically-organized nursing overviews that are designed to map the nursing work flow. Also included are evidence-based care sheets, which gives summaries on key topics incorporating the best available evidence through systematic surveillance. The point-of-care tool also includes nursing reference books, lab and diagnostic test overviews, legal cases, point-of-care drug information for nurses, and customizable patient education information.
Nursing Reference Center enables nurses to quickly access the best available evidence on conditions or diseases and to review the leading nursing reference books at the point-of- care, which can be integrated into their workflow. By infusing evidence-based content into the workflow, NRC is designed to improve the consistency of care and ensure that the latest guidelines and medical alerts are known by the entire nursing staff. NRC allows nursing administrators to compile pertinent information on nursing standards, common conditions and treatment, diagnostic tests, research instruments, questionnaires, and drug information on a floor-by-floor or department-by-department basis.
Nursing Reference Center also includes hundreds of proprietary continuing education modules, daily nursing news feeds with FDA alerts and critical clinical updates, and allows for integrated searching of a user’s CINAHL and MEDLINE.
