Wolters Kluwer Health, a leading global provider of information for healthcare professionals and students, announced today that it has launched an enhanced dental drug interactions screening tool with a new Medication Safety Check feature, allowing professionals to screen for drug-drug, drug-allergy, and duplicate therapy interactions and review safe medication options. Available within Lexicomp® Online™ for Dentistry, Wolters Kluwer Health’s referential drug information solution for dental professionals, this advanced interactions screening tool is designed to help improve patient safety and to help dental professionals feel confident in their prescribing decisions.
With an ever-increasing number of the U.S. population taking multiple medications, dental professionals need fast, actionable information to help protect both their patients and their practice. The newly enhanced Lexicomp Online for Dentistry interactions screener includes:
- Ability to screen for potential drug, natural product and known drug allergy interactions, as well as for possible duplicate therapies
- Brand-new Medication Safety Check feature helps inform treatment decisions by instantly generating a list of drugs from a medication category that won’t conflict with the patient’s regimen or reported allergies
- Five-tiered risk rating scale to quickly identify an interaction’s level of severity and inform decisions on whether the treatment benefits outweigh the interaction risks
- Dental Alerts of dental-specific contraindications or potential effects on dental treatments
“Today’s dental professional is busier than ever and practicing in a far more complicated medical landscape,” stated Steven Kerscher, Vice President & General Manager, Clinical Drug Information, Wolters Kluwer Health, Clinical Solutions. “Our dental interactions screener with its game-changing Medication Safety Check helps take the guesswork out of prescribing decisions in just a few clicks, saving dentists time and enhancing patient safety.”

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
