Features

UpToDate® is committed to innovation and value so we continually make enhancements that help clinicians provide better patient care. Key product features available to users with registered accounts or individual subscriptions include:

Mobile Apps — With an individual subscription or UpToDate Anywhere, users can access UpToDate clinical decision support on the go from any mobile browser or our award-winning UpToDate Mobile Apps, available for most leading devices.

What’s New — The “What’s New” notifications provide clinicians with a summary of, in our editors’ view, the most important new information added to the medical literature in recent weeks to topics they’ve previously read.

Practice Changing UpDates — This section highlights specific recommendations and/or updates that we anticipate may change clinical practice. UpToDate will notify clinicians when a topic they’ve previously read has been impacted by a Practice Changing UpDate.

Patient Education — UpToDate includes more than 1,500 corresponding patient information topics, plus more than 1,000 in universal Spanish. Clinicians can review this information with patients in the exam room, print out as handouts, or send via email.

Integrated Patient Education — UpToDate and Lexicomp® have collaborated to provide comprehensive, embedded, and integrated patient education solutions for EMRs and other healthcare applications.

Search Features — UpToDate streamlines search capabilities by enabling queries and navigation in multiple languages.

Graphics Search — This powerful search engine feature allows subscribers to search tens of thousands of pictures, charts, movies, illustrations and more – all without ever leaving UpToDate.

Medical Calculators — UpToDate includes calculators to help you quickly and accurately calculate many different medical measurements.

Feedback — Because some of the most important contributions to UpToDate come from our clinician subscribers, we’ve incorporated a feedback button that allows you to submit questions and comments to our editors.

Drugs & Drug Interactions — Clinicians can quickly check for possible drug-to-drug and drug-to-herb interactions with the UpToDate drug interactions program (in partnership with Lexicomp®).

Link to Full-Text Articles — We provide convenient links to full text of referenced articles (provided your institution subscribes to a service that allows this access).

Table of Contents - View specialties and other features of UpToDate.

Bookmarks, History, Most Viewed - Clinicians can quickly and conveniently access the UpToDate content they find most valuable from within their registered accounts or individual subscriptions at any time and from any device with automatic syncing.
