The COVID-19 pandemic presents an unprecedented challenge to the global community. At Wolters Kluwer, we are fully committed to continuing to serve our customers with excellence, striving to provide our solutions and services without interruption today and in the time ahead.

Every day, including a crisis situation like the COVID-19 pandemic, we help customers with our global and local (expert) solutions, a combination of deep domain knowledge with specialized technology and services, to empower them to make informed decisions and deliver impact when it matters most. We are working hard to do our part in helping customers navigate these challenging and uncertain times by providing solutions for the following professionals:

Healthcare professionals

Wolters Kluwer is supporting hospitals and clinicians at the front lines with free access to a wide range of resources for use at the point of care as well as in clinical research, healthcare IT and public health. Clinicians can access continually updated, evidence-based recommendations from UpToDate and nursing teams can use a free Rapid Onboarding program in Lippincott Procedures to aid nurses shifting to care for patients with COVID-19. Monitoring, alerting and reporting tools as well as updated coding for COVID-19 are helping organizations and professionals keep pace with frontline care.

Public health agencies and ministries can track the virus with a global interactive map that displays the intensity of clinicians’ searches in UpToDate to provide predictive insights on reported cases. Clinical researchers have access to powerful research tools like GIDEON and Ovid while consumers are informed and empowered with accurate information about COVID-19 from our Emmi® video geared for the layperson available in 16 languages.

These resources and numerous journal articles, podcasts, videos and blog posts are available now on our comprehensive COVID-19 resources and tools page.

Tax and accounting professionals

Wolters Kluwer is helping tax and accounting professionals stay up to date with legislative and regulatory changes impacting businesses and individuals during the pandemic. Our CCH Axcess iQ and CCH iQ solutions in the US and Australia constantly track tax code and regulatory changes, automatically matching them against a firm’s client database to identify impacted clients.

In the US, we’ve added a dedicated COVID-19 section to our CCH AnswerConnect online research platform and made it available to any tax and accounting professional free of charge. And, we’ve also created several dedicated COVID-19 resource webpages in many countries, including Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resources for Tax & Accounting Professionals, COVID-19 Resource Hub, Current Information for Accounting Professionals Regarding Corona, and Corona Crisis Resources.
