According to Lexi-Comp, Lexi-Drugs offers:
I’ve been using Lexi-Comp products for years, and have always found them to be a well designed and informative resource. Their paperback Drug Information Handbook is a mainstay in any hospital pharmacy. In fact, the 2008-2009 edition is sitting on the shelf right in front of me.
The combination of the iPhone and Lexi-Drugs make a great tool for pharmacists looking for expert drug information in a small package.

how about a database that includes formularies for all government Part D plans and Medicare and Medicaid and 340B pricing?
Hi Carla – The database you mention is not part of Lexi-Comp’s arsenal as far as I know, but it would be worth their time to investigate. Insurance companies have all this data at their fingertips. Maybe they should market it?
You know, I could see value in adding Lexi-Drugs to AutoPharm/AutoPack as a drug information source. Something similar to what Pyxis does with their workstations now. There might might be some value to it.
