Is an antibiotic the right treatment? Is an oral anticoagulant needed? What’s the best next step when a lab test shows low glucose?

Decisions like these are common in clinical settings, and they can significantly impact patient care and your organization. In fact, these types of decisions have proven to be major contributors to unwarranted care variation, which impacts patient outcomes while driving costs ever higher.

As an extension to UpToDate, the leading global, point-of-care clinical decision support solution, UpToDate Advanced offers interactive guides that are unique to each patient, resulting in a specific care recommendation. It’s built from the unparalleled, deep domain expertise of the editorial team to address common drivers of unwarranted care variability. UpToDate Advanced distills essential information for clinicians at the point of care, leveraging a carefully developed and curated suite of interactive pathways, calculators, lab interpretation monographs, and patient education material.

The Advisory Board estimates that $340B annually has been associated with either unnecessary care, or inefficiently delivered services. That’s a $20M–$30M per year problem for a typical hospital.

For medical professionals, UpToDate Advanced can help you:

  • Improve patient outcomes by providing guidance for each unique patient
  • Access evidence and recommendations for treating patient conditions with multiple management, diagnoses, or treatment options
  • Feel confident that important questions and considerations aren't missed as you make care decisions
The advantage of UpToDate Advanced is that it is easy to use and useful to make quick clinical decisions. I use UpToDate Pathways while working in the clinic, and then later dive deeper into the details by consulting monographs on the various topics. I find it extraordinary to have all this knowledge at hand. I know that I am offering my patients a quality, evidence-based approach to treatment, while personally accessing a high level of continuing education. Studying and gathering further information in agreement with the patients increases the confidence that my patients have in the advice I try to give them.
