A valuable catalyst for life sciences research and clinical trials

UpToDate can be especially effective when deployed across your entire organization, helping to ensure your clinical leaders, research and development staff, and other key teams have access to the same information, whenever and wherever it’s needed.

The right information can translate into business growth and revenue

Life sciences teams benefit from evidence-based clinical insights about disease management and treatment. Global healthcare experts provide deep domain expertise across 25+ specialties to help inform drug development decision making:

  • Is it appropriate to pursue this drug, and what approach makes sense?
  • What other treatments are available for a condition?
  • What are the current recommended steps to manage a condition or its symptoms?
  • What are the appropriate parameters for clinical trials? What problems might arise?

“UpToDate is helping us develop better products.”
