The EBSCOhost Integration Toolkit (EIT) provides easy integration between EBSCO Publishing's online clinical resources, nursing care, patient education, medical research resources and all Electronic Health/Medical Records (EHR/EMR), decision support and patient record applications. The EBSCOhost Integration Toolkit helps clinicians and nurses rapidly select topics from an EHR/EMR and retrieve the contextually relevant, evidence-based condition or procedure summary from an EBSCO resource such as Health Library, DynaMed, or Nursing Reference Center. The EBSCOhost Integration Toolkit dramatically reduces the cost and complexity of custom integration for hospital IT departments.
Improving service quality and reducing medical errors are critical success factors for healthcare providers today. Expanding the use of information technology and evidence-based medicine are two key practices being used to achieve these goals. The EBSCOhost Integration Toolkit enables healthcare providers to connect these two initiatives and deliver the best available evidence to point-of-care users, such as: physicians, nurses, therapists, pharmacists and patients, directly at the patient's bedside and intelligently from within the EHR/EMR.
The EBSCOhost Integration Toolkit provides a comprehensive set of flexible integration options to establish direct links from EHR/EMR or other clinical applications, to applicable clinical reference resources from EBSCO. For example, support of the industry standard Infobutton allows easy integration from the EHR to the appropriate clinical reference, helping clinicians at the point-of-care to rapidly select topics from an EHR and retrieve the relevant, evidence-based condition or procedure summary from an EBSCO resource. EIT is optimized to enable hospitals to rapidly access EBSCO's point-of-care clinical, nursing and patient references, DynaMed, Nursing Reference Center, and patient education products, as well as all of our industry leading research databases such as CINAHL Plus with Full Text, and MEDLINE with Full Text.
