Carestream Dental Inks Partnership with Lexicomp for Access to Clinical Data

ATLANTA and HUDSON, OHIO – Carestream Dental LLC, a subsidiary of Carestream Health, Inc., and the exclusive manufacturer of KODAK Dental Systems, announced it has entered into a comprehensive data-sharing agreement with Lexicomp, a global provider of drug information and drug data solutions for healthcare professionals.

Through this venture, Lexicomp’s vast, subscription-based database of comprehensive drug information and clinical reference content will be made accessible through Carestream Dental’s SoftDent, PracticeWorks, Windent, and WinOMS CS software.*

“As with many of our products and services, our goal for this partnership is to maximize oral health professionals’ ability to further streamline office management and spend quality time on patient care,” said Patrik Eriksson, president and CEO, Carestream Dental LLC.

“By giving practice professionals the ability to access Lexicomp data and pull it directly into patient records with their existing practice management software, we can improve decision support to ensure patient safety and eliminate several steps in an otherwise lengthy data entry process,” Eriksson said. “This reduces the chance of errors and saves practices valuable time as they check on drug interactions.”

Lexicomp maintains an in-house clinical team comprised of advanced-degreed pharmacists with significant clinical and academic experience. This team performs daily surveillance of announcements by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration plus pharmaceutical manufacturers. This critical information is compiled and made available to heath care systems regarding drug availability, new dosage forms, and revisions to contraindications, warnings, or other changes.
