Wolters Kluwer Health, a leading global provider of information for healthcare professionals and students, announced today the release of significant enhancements to its UpToDate® App for the Android™ mobile platform. The new release delivers an upgraded experience for users worldwide who access the evidence-based clinical decision support resource via the award-winning UpToDate mobile app on their Android smartphones and tablets.
The Android App release delivers richer content, with access to a wide range of UpToDate videos, as well as streamlined searching using “Find in Topic” and filtering options to quickly find topics through bookmarks and history. It also offers faster automatic content updates over Wi-Fi for UpToDate MobileComplete™, which provides users with full access to UpToDate even without a network connection.
Of particular interest to global Android users is the addition of Search in Your Own Language, a customizable suite of search and navigation tools that enables them to research clinical questions in their native language. This unique feature streamlines searches for clinical information and graded recommendations by leveraging an advanced, patent-pending translation system for search terms in Simplified and Traditional Chinese, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Japanese and English. An intuitive auto-complete feature also predicts words or phrases in a clinician’s native language.
“Clinicians worldwide rely on UpToDate to quickly provide answers to clinical questions at the point of care, and a rapidly growing number are doing so with Android smartphones and tablets,” said Denise Basow, MD, Vice President/General Manager, UpToDate at Wolters Kluwer Health, Clinical Solutions.
According to Gartner, the Android operating system continues to dominate the global marketplace with a 78.4% share of the smartphone market. Dr. Basow adds: “Low-cost Android devices, for example, help enable mobile access to UpToDate for clinicians in resource-limited regions worldwide. Our mission is to improve healthcare, everywhere, and our recent Android enhancements demonstrate our commitment to providing Android users with easy access to the clinical answers they need, when and where they need them.”
