Around 13.4% of the world’s population suffers from chronic kidney disease1 and acute kidney injuries occur in 23% of hospitalized patients2… and yet renal dosing continues to be a challenge worldwide because there has not been a gold standard for those recommendations. Until now.

At Lexicomp, we make it our business to tackle the most critical and challenging areas of drug decision support, and this is just one example. We gathered world-renowned experts in nephrology and pharmacology to expand and advance renal dosing content and provide clinical context for those recommendations. Where other drug information may provide the basics, we have an unparalleled commitment to supporting clinicians as they make decisions not only in the straightforward cases, but in the most complex. We achieve this through our unmatched multidisciplinary editorial team that anticipates clinicians’ needs when treating patients with varied medical conditions, and through our formulary and advanced machine learning technology, delivering that relevant information quickly and across solutions.

Expert editorial team, providing breadth and depth of content

We never stop advancing our content. As new evidence emerges, our expert editorial team incorporates it into the drug information you need to make decisions. And, because our 7,400-person team includes so many pharmacists and clinicians, they understand and seek to address the most challenging areas of dosing, ordering, and administering medications in hospital and retail settings. This allows them to deliver the breadth and depth of content that is critical to providing clinicians with information they need to make patient care decisions based on the latest evidence.

Recent content expansions include the following, inspired by their experience in the field and feedback from customers like you.

Expanded dosing, enabling a more patient-specific approach

Not all dosing content is created equal. Lexicomp enables you to take a patient-specific approach when making each drug decision by going beyond the standard drug information to include critical, nuanced dosing considerations for renal impairment, pharmacogenomics, obesity, pregnancy, and more. To do this, we bring together the leading experts in these fields to synthesize the latest data and provide your clinicians with a level of content that is unparalleled.

Clinical Insights

When you help a patient with their medication, you bring expertise that is unique to your role. With Lexicomp, you benefit from a more holistic view of drug information that is made possible because Lexicomp and UpToDate are both part of Wolters Kluwer. Our editorial team of pharmacists, physicians, nurses, and other advanced degree clinicians come together to discuss medication decisions, evaluate evidence together, and embed the resulting Clinical Insights into our drug content. This approach saves you time from needing to have some of those same conversations with your counterparts, and it provides you more support when making the best possible decision for each patient.

Nurses are critical to the success of patient care. With access to best-practice drug administration content from Lexicomp, nurses can contribute to the prevention of medication and administration errors. Lexicomp provides nurses with critical resources like Trissel’s IV Compatibility, administration and adverse drug reaction content, and Briggs’ Drugs in Pregnancy and Lactation that helps them to deliver medications to patients safely. Nursing units use Lexicomp regularly when administering drugs in order to provide their patients with more consistent care throughout their stay in the hospital and in an effort to reduce care variability.

To promote adherence to your formulary and make it easier to manage, we offer Formulink as an extension of Lexicomp. This custom formulary database service provides easy lookup to your organization’s formulary information at the point of care, whether you’re fulfilling orders within Lexicomp or making prescribing decisions within UpToDate.
