Capture.JPGClinical eCompanion brings together freely-available medical information into one searchable database, providing for a wide array of resources applicable to primary care.  Clinical eCompanion includes drug information, free full-text PubMed articles, patient education materials, USPSTF recommendations, as well as an ICD-10 lookup tool.  With these different tools, Clinical eCompanion provides searchable access to clinical information which may be especially useful to clinicians who do not have access to a medical library.

Clinical eCompanion was created by the health sciences librarians of the University of Pittsburgh, with the support of the National Library of Medicine, the National Institutes of Health, and Department of Health and Human Services.
