IET announces full release of Inspec Analytics, its new research intelligence tool
- 18 Jul 2019

The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) has announced the full release of Inspec Analytics, a research intelligence tool to help research professionals explore global trends in physics, engineering and technology research.

With the changing landscape in scholarly communications placing increased emphasis on measuring the impact of research outputs, Inspec Analytics has been developed to support researchers, strategic managers and libraries in assessing the value and impact of research and make strategic decisions about the direction of their projects, departments and collaborations.

The full release includes the ability to investigate the research collaborations of organisations, to filter results by location and organisation type, and enhanced interactive views which provide deeper insights into high-level and niche disciplines, allowing users to explore research trends based on organisations, controlled terms or subject classifications. Strategic managers will also benefit from being able to see an organisation's global ranking for each field and compare one institution with another to set benchmarks.

Users can currently access Inspec Analytics directly via the IET's platform. The IET is also currently working with vendor partners to allow a seamless experience for users with access to existing Inspec platforms including: EBSCO Host, Engineering Village and Web of Science. Inspec Analytics is available as part of the Inspec subscription.

Clinicians across 139 nations turn to Wolters Kluwer's UpToDate Advanced for high-quality care
- 12 Jul 2019

Wolters Kluwer, Health has announced that the use of UpToDate® Advanced continues to grow significantly around the world since its release in February 2018. In 16 months, nearly 700 hospitals and health systems in 25 countries as well as 17,000 individual UpToDate subscribers in 139 countries have taken advantage of the interactive pathways to improve care.

UpToDate Advanced clinical pathways target common medical conditions with unwarranted variability in care, helping clinicians meet national and international quality measures. Care variations can be costly for hospitals. After analysing care variation in 468 hospitals, The Advisory Board found that a typical facility could save up to $29 million annually by delivering care in line with cost benchmarks for high-quality hospitals.

UpToDate Advanced supports appropriate treatment decisions with evidence-based clinical decision-making. It helps clinicians reduce inappropriate testing and treatments and provides guidance on when and which antibiotics should be prescribed.

Clinicians are also taking advantage of over 100 Lab Interpretation monographs to more accurately interpret abnormal lab results, helping to address another source of care variation.

In 2019, some of the top clinical pathways clinicians turned to UpToDate Advanced to include Atrial Fibrillation, Hyponatremia, Hypertension and Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus.

The Veterans Health Administration, a part of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and also the largest healthcare system in the United States, recently added UpToDate Advanced to its range of solutions from Wolters Kluwer.

CAS launches computer-aided retrosynthetic analysis solution, drives increase in R&D productivity
- 02 Jul 2019

CAS, a division of the American Chemical Society specializing in scientific information solutions, has launched a computer-aided retrosynthetic analysis solution that systematically identifies new pathways to chemical compounds. Now available to all SciFindern users, this next-generation capability is empowering chemistry researchers around the world to rapidly identify, compare and prioritize alternative synthetic pathways.

The Retrosynthesis Planner in SciFindern assists chemists with the synthesis portion of this process. Researchers are confirming this new functionality accelerates research, improves productivity and will help them get new products such as pharmaceuticals, agrichemicals and performance chemicals to market faster.

For any known molecule, chemists can now use SciFindern to connect reaction steps revealed throughout millions of publications from around the globe to quickly build a comprehensive, intuitively organised retrosynthetic plan for their application. Whether users are looking for optimum synthetic routes to known intermediates, seeking cutting-edge solutions to replace older routes or exploring ideas for scale-up processes, the new retrosynthesis planning functionality in SciFindern reduces the time spent finding, validating and prioritising synthetic routes from hours to minutes. In addition, the SciFindern retrosynthesis plan provides direct access to related references and commercial suppliers, so researchers can complete their entire synthetic planning workflow in a single solution.

With timeframes to bring new chemical products to market measured in years and investment in R&D measured in billions, chemical R&D organisations are constantly seeking new solutions to improve productivity and speed breakthroughs to market. Yet, as the volume and complexity of published scientific information grows exponentially each year, efficiency becomes continuously more challenging to achieve. SciFindern leverages the latest technology to provide insights that save chemists significant time and optimise processes, providing high value to research leaders.

The CAS collection of human-curated scientific content is recognised as the largest and highest quality in the world, amassing data organised over the past 110+ years. Data volume and quality are critical requirements to fuel emerging technologies, including AI and machine learning, among others. With nearly 120 million reactions underpinning the synthetic planning feature in SciFindern, this valuable solution is uniquely able to provide chemists a comprehensive view of the relevant possibilities.

CAS has also collaborated with John Wiley and Sons, Inc. to deliver more value to chemistry researchers. CAS developed this new experimental retrosynthesis capability, in part, with Wiley's ChemPlanner technology.

Wolters Kluwer releases Medi-Span® Hazardous Drug Handling solutions, helps healthcare organisations put employee health and safety first
- 29 May 2019

Wolters Kluwer, Health, a global provider of information and point of care solutions for the healthcare industry, has announced the release of Medi-Span® Hazardous Drug Handling solutions to assist healthcare professionals with streamlining their USP <800> compliance efforts while supporting employee health and safety. The anticipated date for healthcare organizations' compliance with USP General Chapter <800> standards is December 1, 2019.

According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), more than 12 billion doses of hazardous drugs (antineoplastic, non-antineoplastic, and reproductive risk) are handled every year at pharmacies, hospitals and other healthcare institutions, patient treatment clinics, and physicians' practice facilities around the US. Employees involved in activities related to receipt, dispensing, compounding and other manipulations, administration, patient care, spills, transport and waste disposal are exposed to potentially harmful amounts of these substances and may experience hair loss, rashes, cardiac toxicity, infertility, reproductive outcomes, cancer and other symptoms.

Medi-Span Hazardous Drug Handling solutions can assist in streamlining professionals' access to key information on hazardous drugs (HDs) by integrating it directly into clinical, pharmacy, or inventory workflow. A partnership with the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) will provide trusted content from the USP-created HazRx® Dataset. This important information is mapped to interoperable identifiers for use within an organisation's existing systems, saving time and sparing employee resources from translating USP data to an organisation's drug lists and inventories in order to use the information.

Available as a flat data file or an API, Medi-Span HD solutions provide organisations with essential tools to implement programs for USP <800> compliance. Users of the Medi-Span HD solutions can easily find generic and brand names of drugs identified as hazardous on the NIOSH list. Flags alert users to help determine if an assessment of risk is needed or if handling is in accordance with USP General Chapter <800> standards. Organisations can configure their systems to create alerts and also display details on dispensing, handling, storage, and other activities where there is a risk of HD exposure. Medi-Span HD solutions also provide monthly data updates from USP to help organizations stay current with new regulations and information related to hazardous drug handling.
