Westwood, Mass.-based Meditech has integrated within four applications of its Health Care Information System the Micromedex CareNotes patient education content of Thomson Reuters, Ann Arbor, Mich.

The integration enables HCIS users to access educational material within their workflow to streamline the process of finding, delivering and documenting personalized and relevant patient education, according to the vendors. The content now is available in the Emergency Department Management, Physician Care Manager, Oncology and Patient Care System applications.

Integration also meets existing certification criteria for hospital information systems to generate tailored education materials for medications, diagnosis, procedures and tests. More information is available at meditech.com and thomsonreuters.com.
