Features Anytime/Anywhere Access to the Award-Winning UpToDate Mobile App
NEW ORLEANS, La.--(Business Wire)--
Wolters Kluwer Health, a leading global provider of information for healthcare
professionals and students, announced today at the HIMSS13 Annual Conference &
Exhibition, the availability of UpToDate® Anywhere, enabling healthcare
enterprises to improve patient care by equipping clinicians with
anytime/anywhere access to comprehensive, evidence-based, clinical decision
support through the award-winning 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 robust 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 an intuitive, web-based tool 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. 

"I love remote access to UpToDate. It`s a resource we use as a go-to source for
peer-reviewed information that is universally trusted," said Douglas Young, PA-C
at Southwest Medical Associates in Nevada. "The fact that we get CME credit for
the time we spend researching clinical information is a huge bonus. The more our
staff uses UpToDate, the better the return on our investment!" 

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. 

"UpToDate Anywhere plays a key role in provider efforts to increase clinician
satisfaction by making their go-to evidence-based clinical decision support
solution available regardless of the clinician`s location," said Denise Basow,
M.D., Vice President/General Manager and Editor-in-Chief, UpToDate at Wolters
Kluwer Health, Clinical Solutions.
