Wolters Kluwer Health’ UpToDate helps enhance quality of patient care at Grupo Hospitalar Conceição -

Information services provider Wolters Kluwer Health, US, has announced that UpToDate, its evidence-based clinical decision support resource, has enhanced the quality of patient care at Grupo Hospitalar Conceição (GHC) in Porte Alegre and increased physician satisfaction in its use for effective clinical support and training.

UpToDate is a frequently-updated, evidence-based resource authored by leading medical doctors to help make the right decisions at the point of care. In 2007, GHC was evaluating clinical decision support options and UpToDate was selected not only to improve care for patients but also for training and continuing professional development and medical education.

Hospital management at GHC encouraged adoption of UpToDate and facilitated access by offering a link to UpToDate on every computer to ensure doctors could use it anywhere in the institution, at any time. This, coupled with effective strategies for implementation, led to a consistently steady increase in usage. Clinicians who were familiar with UpToDate immediately started using it and they, in turn, served as a collaborative resource for others who were new to UpToDate.

Doctors routinely consult UpToDate for an array of topics across a wide range of specialties, seeing UpToDate as an essential tool in every department.
