inPractice® Launches Point-of-Care Decision Support Tool for Rheumatologists

October 29, 2013

Specialty-focused online reference also offers new technology platform and user interface for HIV, Hepatology, and Oncology

RESTON, Va., Oct. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –inPractice® Resources today announced the launch of inPractice® Rheumatology, a new point-of-care decision support tool designed to meet the specific needs of rheumatologists. inPractice Rheumatology was unveiled at the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) Annual Meeting in San Diego, California, October 27-29, 2013. The company has also released a new, streamlined user interface for Hepatology, HIV, and Oncology, the previously available inPractice specialties.

inPractice was designed to meet the unique reference and educational needs of specialists. Unlike more general decision support tools, which require multiple clicks through varied content sources and individual monographs, inPractice offers deep, specialist-focused recommendations for patient care. Clinicians can browse specific inPractice chapters or perform a quick search to see the latest drug information, PubMed abstracts, treatment guidelines, and updates on clinical trials. Bulleted summaries–ideal for point-of-care reference–flow seamlessly to comprehensive overviews that allow for deeper study. Interactive decision support tools provide case-specific recommendations based on the input of patient information, and the system offers a seamless blend of reference and education, with point-of-care CME earned for topics searched.

inPractice Rheumatology was created by more than 120 renowned authors under the guidance of Editor-in-Chief David Borenstein, MD, MACP, MACR, and a number of esteemed Section Editors. Chapters are peer reviewed, evidence ranked, and span the multitude of treatment areas that include rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, lupus, Sjogren’s syndrome, microcrystalline disease including gout, spondyloarthritis, vasculitis, musculoskeletal pain syndromes, and a full range of other rheumatologic diseases. The resource also provides insights on the general approach to the rheumatology patient and overviews on current and future treatment options.

“It is with great pride that we announce the launch of inPractice Rheumatology and the release of our new technology platform, which includes personalization and a redesigned user interface for Hepatology, HIV, and Oncology,” said Dr. Jeffrey Drezner, Managing Director, inPractice. “As we expand inPractice into new specialties and therapeutic areas–including Oncology Nursing, which we will launch at the end of the year–inPractice will continue to offer an unsurpassed workflow resource that combines advanced technology, editorial expertise, and educational and informational excellence.”

inPractice will showcase the newly redesigned inPractice Hepatology in booth #645 at the upcoming American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) Annual Meeting, November 2-4, 2013, in Washington, DC.
