Four good reasons to use IBM Micromedex with Watson
Stay on top of the most recent information
As medical literature expands, clinicians’ responsibility to stay on top of the most recent information is imperative – and nearly impossible. Studies show that doctors would have to spend an impossible 29 hours each workday simply to keep up with new professional insights. That’s why IBM Watson Health is applying artificial intelligence (AI) to help change how to approach and understand clinical information. Now you can type quick questions in a conversational way for clear and concise answers.
Use natural language processing to help make it easy
Tap into the AI-powered search technology directly from Micromedex by activating the conversational search assistant “Ask Watson™.” Natural language search capabilities with Watson lets you type in a natural way, asking such questions as: “Can I give with food?” or “Are there renal dosing adjustments?” Watson is trained on clinical concepts and the more you use Watson, the better it gets. Every question you ask helps Watson learn and further enhance system effectiveness and efficiency.
Get a broad scope of answers – quickly
The Watson Assistant can answer many drug information questions from specific content within Micromedex, including quick answers for drug classes, dosing and administration, IV compatibility, medication safety, mechanism of action, pharmacokinectics and drug interactions.
Rely on Micromedex for trusted, accurate information
