Wolters Kluwer Health Announces European Launch of UpToDate Anywhere Clinical Decision Support via Mobile App and Electronic Medical Record

Wolters Kluwer Health, a leading global provider of information for healthcare professionals and students, announced today the Western European launch of UpToDate® Anywhere, enabling hospitals and healthcare organizations to provide clinicians with access to its acclaimed clinical decision support resource anytime, anywhere via mobile app and electronic health record. For faster access to clinical answers, UpToDate Anywhere also provides search and navigation in nine languages.

“No matter where clinicians are—at the bedside, in the clinic, or elsewhere, helping them find the best answers to their clinical questions is a key part of our mission to improve the quality and effectiveness of healthcare worldwide,” said Denise Basow, MD, Vice President and General Manager, UpToDate at Wolters Kluwer Health, Clinical Solutions. “UpToDate Anywhere advances that mission by ensuring clinicians have quick access on their mobile devices and in their electronic medical record to trusted clinical information.”

A recent worldwide survey by UpToDate* revealed that doctors and healthcare institutions are increasingly implementing mobile health strategies to drive adoption of devices like the iPad® as clinical tools. The survey found that 77% of doctors use a smartphone during practice and 70% use mobile devices for clinical decision support. With the UpToDate mobile app, doctors get actionable answers to point-of-care questions on-site, at satellite offices, at home or on the go.

Ranked first among “The best medical apps for your new iPhone” by iMedicalApps and 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 mobile internet browser. Over 200,000 clinicians are already using the UpToDate mobile app worldwide.

European hospitals and healthcare systems with a strategic objective to enhance workflow integration can opt to embed UpToDate in electronic medical record systems such as Cerner, InterSystems, MEDITECH, and others. This allows users to search UpToDate with fewer clicks and without additional windows or log-ins.

Supporting the launch of UpToDate Anywhere in Western Europe is Search in Your Own Language, a customizable suite of local-language search and navigation tools that enables clinicians to research clinical questions in their native language. It streamlines searching for clinical information and graded recommendations by leveraging an advanced, patent-pending translation system for search terms in nine languages, including French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, and English. The intuitive auto-complete feature of UpToDate search also predicts words or phrases in a clinician’s native language to deliver faster results.
