Texas-based CHRISTUS Health will deploy new online clinical decision support (CDS) solutions to meet the needs of its physicians, nurses and pharmacists.

CHRISTUS has selected Elsevier's integrated suite of CDS solutions for pharmacy, medicine and nursing.

Among the technology provided is its clinical pharmacology solution to provide drug information, its ToxED 2.0 application to help in the treatment of drug overdose emergencies and its First Consult technology to offer evidence-based answers at the point of care.

The new solutions will help in better diagnostic and treatment decision making by providing timely and accurate information, improving the quality of care being delivered, Elsevier said.

CHRISTUS Health will install the new CDS solutions at 25 of its hospitals in Texas.
