Can EBSCO medical products be used with EMR/EHR systems?

EBSCO medical products including DynaMed, DynaMed Plus, PEMSoft, Nursing Reference Center, Nursing Reference Center Plus, Patient Education Reference Center and Rehabilitation Reference Center can be accessed via most EMR / EHR systems including Allscripts, Cerner, Epic, GE, McKesson, MEDITECH, Siemens, and many others. Content can be accessed in a variety of ways, and options will vary according to the system being used. Some options may require configuration by the institution’s EMR system administrator or IT department.

Examples of how to access EBSCO content via EMR systems include:

  • Referential Link
    Add a link from the EMR system directly to EBSCO content. Links can be displayed as an icon or a menu option on the EMR tool bar. This option is often the quickest and easiest way to integrate content into an EMR system.

  • Contextual Search
    Access contextually-relevant search results from any EBSCO database from within various points of the EMR. (Note: this functionality is not available in all EMR systems – please check with your vendor to find out if contextual search is supported)

  • HL7 Infobutton
    EBSCO databases are fully compliant with the HL-7 Context-Aware Knowledge Retrieval (Infobutton).

  • Web Service API
    Content can be delivered via a real-time web service.
