Our Lexicomp application has established us as the industry leader in providing dentists information and tools to support safe diagnoses and medication treatment decisions. We offer dental-specific content that cannot be found in the vast majority of other medication and clinical decision support solutions.
Lexicomp provides three options for accessing drug information.
They still have the old fashioned paper book
They offer an app for both iPhone and Android.
The third option is a web based online format.
The advantage to digital formats is ease of use, fast updates and the availability of additional tools. For example a drug interaction tool that allows the user to enter the meds a patient may be taking then a med they are thinking of prescribing to see if there is a potential interaction problem.
In theory you could do all of that with the old fashioned PDR type of publication. However the reality is that looking up the various drugs and then determining interactions of more than two or three is really not practical. With digital tools it is fast and simple.
