February 13, 2014 — Wolters Kluwer Health, a global provider of information for healthcare professionals and students, will make available at HIMSS13 Annual Conference & Exhibition the UpToDate Anywhere. The product enables healthcare enterprises to improve patient care by equipping clinicians with anytime/anywhere access to comprehensive, evidence-based, clinical decision support through the UpToDate mobile app.
As doctors and healthcare enterprises embrace mobile health initiatives and increasingly adopt devices like the iPad, iPhone and other tablets and smartphones as clinical tools, they can now get actionable answers to point-of-care questions on-site, at satellite offices, at home or on the go by using the UpToDate mobile app. Rated as one of “The Best Apps in Publishing” by EContent Magazine, UpToDate is available in iOS, Android and Windows 8 mobile platforms as well as via any internet browser. More than 88,000 UpToDate individual subscribers are already using the UpToDate mobile app, which is available in over 180 countries.
UpToDate Anywhere offers back-end tools for healthcare IT administrators that streamline user registration and on-going user management. Initially available in the United States and Canada, the UpToDate Anywhere Subscriber Manager is web-based for ambulatory group practices that allows administrators to add users, upload user groups and manage access efficiently. For hospitals and other healthcare provider institutions, Subscriber Self Registration allows clinicians to register for UpToDate directly without added HIT administration.
With UpToDate Anywhere, hospitals can support broader opportunities for continuing medical education: whenever and wherever clinicians research clinical questions through UpToDate, they are earning CME credits.
