Staying up to date with the latest medicine information can be an immense task. Where do you start? Which resources are reliable and accurate? How much will these resources cost? How can you integrate these resources into your existing processes? 

Luckily, South Africa’s medical industry is going through a digital transformation. Nowadays, you can simply search the Internet and have information at your fingertips. However, there’s a risk of receiving inaccurate information from unreliable sources. 

This blog introduces how the free and accurate online resource, EMGuidance, is integrated into the GoodX Web App.
