Micromedex - trial database available until 14th June

I’m pleased to let you know we currently have a trial to the Micromedex database. This is an evidence based clinical database that supports pharmaceutical decision making. It includes IBM Watson artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities such as natural language search to simplify and accelerate drug information answers. We have access to the five modules;

  • DRUGDEX System
  • Complete Drug Interactions
  • Disease General Medicine
  • In Depth Alternative Med Info
  • Alt Medicine Protocols

You can find training material by clicking on the top right “Training Center” link.

If you have time, please help us in making a case for this database by filling in the following survey; http://vuw.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_26jMjMiotHpZXq5. Or email me directly with any feedback.
