Solution Suite Implemented in Top U.S. Health System

Catholic Healthcare West (CHW), the eighth largest U.S. health system based in San Francisco, will implement Thomson Micromedex’s comprehensive medication information solution suite throughout its 40-hospital system. The Web-based product deployment will promote more informed and safer treatment decisions at the point of care. Micromedex is a part of The Thomson Corp., a leader in enterprise-wide clinical knowledge solutions for scientific and healthcare professionals.
Physicians, pharmacists, nurses and other caregivers will have access to Micromedex Healthcare Series via the provider’s secure system-wide Intranet connection at all facilities. The Web-enabled navigation reduces clinicians’ search times, giving them quick access to the latest answers on disease, drug and toxicology information.
