UpToDate MobileComplete™ Provides iPhone Users with Fast Local Access to Trusted, Evidence-Based Clinical Knowledge
Waltham, Mass. (Dec. 7, 2011) – Building on the success of its debut mobile application, UpToDate, a Wolters Kluwer Health company, has released a downloadable local version of its iPhone App, UpToDate MobileComplete. The fastest mobile version of UpToDate, MobileComplete provides clinicians with access to evidence-based, practical recommendations — even offline, where there is no network connection (Wi-Fi connection required for initial download and new version updates).
“Much of my time is spent in the hospital setting without reliable cellular/network coverage. MobileComplete allows me to quickly access full UpToDate content from my mobile device wherever I am, and whenever I need it,” said Dr. Mitch Ross, UpToDate Subscriber
Since the launch of UpToDate Mobile in July 2011, more than 42,000 clinicians have downloaded the mobile application for iPhone. The on-demand application allows physicians and clinicians to search UpToDate’s extensive clinical content from an iPhone using a network connection.
With UpToDate MobileComplete, clinicians can access the clinical knowledge contained within the UpToDate database locally, without a persistent network connection. To ensure users access the most current recommendations, the App will verify that requested content is the most recent when a network connection is present.
“UpToDate MobileComplete furthers our mission of improving medical care by providing clinicians with evidence-based recommendations for clinical care whenever and wherever they need them,” said Denise S. Basow, M.D., President and Editor-in-Chief, UpToDate.
