UpToDate is an evidence-based clinical decision support resource that equips clinicians with the most current medical information, including expert-authored recommendations that can be used at the point of care. Since internet connectivity is limited aboard the ISS, NASA is using UpToDate MobileComplete™ to enable access UpToDate content without continuous internet access. With all UpToDate content downloaded locally to an iPad, astronauts have seamless offline access to the latest comprehensive clinical content that spans more than 11,000 clinical topics.
“For over a quarter-century, UpToDate has served as the world’s most trusted clinical decision support resource. Now, we are proud to be used on the ISS, 250 miles (403 km) above the earth’s surface,” said Denise Basow, CEO of Clinical Effectiveness, Wolters Kluwer, Health. “Wolters Kluwer leverages insights from thousands of world-renowned experts, authors, editors and peer reviewers to help clinicians make the best care decisions wherever they practice — even in space.”
