Empower care teams to take on unwanted clinical variability and improve outcomes

Tackling unwarranted clinical variability can help hospitals address the pressures of continually improving patient outcomes while simultaneously controlling costs. Variations in care can lead to inefficiencies, adverse events, increased lengths of stay, and higher mortality rates. In short, all quality indicators are affected.

Trusted, evidence-based decision support can help hospitals and health systems manage care variability by ensuring clinical decisions are aligned with the best available evidence, accelerating the adoption of new care approaches, and aligning care decision across your teams. UpToDate is the only clinical decision support of its kind that has been associated with improved outcomes for patients, as well as reductions in length of stay, diagnostic errors, unnecessary testing and referrals. UpToDate topics are viewed more than 1.6 million times per day. More than 2 million clinicians and other healthcare professionals in more than 190 countries, two-thirds of hospitals and health systems in the U.S., including 90% of teaching hospitals use UpToDate as part of regular practice.

Reduce diagnostic errors by 91%
A 2018 study in Japan identified 100 patients who visited an outpatient department in a community-based hospital. Half were seen by physicians equipped with UpToDate, and half were seen by physicians without UpToDate. They compared diagnostic error rates between the groups.

The diagnostic error rate for the patients seen by physicians equipped with UpToDate was 2%.

The diagnostic error rate for patients seen by physicians not equipped with UpToDate was 24%.
