Audience: Clinical Staff
Description: In this session we will review UpToDate Advanced, a tool that helps improve efficiencies and reduce unwarranted clinical variation in adult care and delivers even more content to support conditions that impact patient care. Clinicians can access more than 76 UpToDate Pathways across 18 clinical specialties and more than 120 Lab Interpretation monographs. UpToDate Pathways are interactive clinical decision-making workflow tools that connect and synthesize the existing UpToDate content to help create a personalized plan for each patient, including documenting recommended orders and decision-making process. Lab Interpretation contains monographs to quickly provide evidence-based interpretations and next steps for abnormal lab results. There will also be a review of the latest enhancements to our core UpToDate resource (e.g. more than 280 new clinical topics, including COVID-19, voice search on the mobile app and CME redemption from the mobile app).
