Abstract: A poster presentation on Pharmacist drug information access at patient bedside: using Ask Watson. Introduction: Micromedex® is a common online drug information (DI) resource used at patient bedside. In August 2018, Micromedex has combined the artificial intelligence (AI) of IBM Watson with the evidence-based clinical decision support of Micromedex® resulting in Ask Watson™. This platform answers drug questions from specific content within Micromedex®. The AI of Ask Watson is a new feature within Micromedex intended to improve DI access, especially when used at patient bedside. Aims: - To propose improvements to the current DI service at patient bedside; - To evaluate nature and extent of DI requests from clinical inpatient hospital setting at the Intensive Care Unit at Mater Dei Hospital, Malta; - To evaluate the use of Ask Watson platform when used at patient bedside.
