Pros: This is updated frequently so I find it gives me current information. It has a great search engine as well as a breakdown of topics on the side so you can quickly get the information you want. It also has patient information for each topic which is easily printable. It uses charts and decision making flowcharts. I frequently will print out a flow chart (ex. hypercalcemia workup) or a list (ex. Vitamin k amounts in foods).

It does come in a computer and/or a phone app but I just use the computer form. Also everything you look up counts toward CME and uptodate keeps track of it for you. I can use it in the room with the patient

or check after the visit.

Cons: The cost but I make that up with my CME. Also since it is so current occasionally I find the information, like recommended testing, is not available in my area. Usually that is mentioned in the description.

Overall: I have been using this resource for over 10 years and I feel it allows me to use current data to make decisions.

Pros: UpToDate has changed the medical field and the way that physicians learn and practice medicine. It is pretty much impossible to keep up with medicine in the current day given the infinite amounts of knowledge that is constantly changing. Although it is always good to look up primary sources and journals on your own, it's incredibly helpful to be able to quickly look things up first on UpToDate, and can always do further reading later if needed. The information is current with relevant key articles as citations, and written by a lot of key specialists in the field. Couldn't imagine practicing without it.

Cons: The only idea for improvement is it could include more pictures and radiology images in the system for reference and learning.

Pros: Love that this is integrated into my EHR software, it is so helpful to look up conditions right in the moment while providing telephone triage to patients. The photos are great quality and I like that all of the info. is generally on the same page so there is not a lot of clicking. Major bonus is earning CME's for doing what I need to do for my job anyway.

Cons: For my purpose which is providing telephone triage to patients sometimes the info is too in depth, but not a major issue.

Overall: Uptodate absolutely improves the care I provide to patients and it keeps track of CME's I have earned while using it- a win/win for me and my organization.

Pros: This app is amazing. I use it daily when in clinic. Whether I need to look up a medication, dosing of medications, signs/symptoms of diseases, or need to educate my patients on something this is my go to reference. Worth every penny. Love the pictures that are often included. Also love the feature of pregnancy/lactation when prescribing medications. Also love that there is an app that you can access anywhere.

Cons: Nothing. I don't have anything bad to say about this software.

Overall: Exceptional

Pros: One of the best sources for quick and accurate medical information. Very comprehensive resource that has topics on just about anything and the articles are well-written.

Cons: It would be nice if you could have multiple topics open at one time in the mobile application. Sometimes I wish that there were more media/pictures with the topics.

Quite expensive for what it is

Pros: The best thing about UpToDate is that it keeps your practice and medical doctors (who are long out of med-school) "Up To Date" on current guidelines for specific diagnoses. The library of diagnoses and conditions to treat is thorough. And each diagnosis contains information on how to diagnose it and treat it. It is no doubt a great tool to have for a medical practice.

Cons: As a primary care medical group we do not need to use UpToDate quite often since most of what we diagnose and see is routine. In addition, most of the information we need can easily be found in much cheaper resources such as AAP or Pediatric Journals, OCMA, and dare I say even Google. That said, this makes UpToDate quite pricy for the few times we actually use it. However, we do occasionally use it and feel more comfortable using it because it is the most current up to date guideline that is trusted in the medical community.

One other con is that we thought we would use UpToDate to fight with insurance companies to get paid for referrals or such they felt were unneeded. However, this takes way too much work and insurance companies have their own set of guidelines they stick by.

Overall: Great quality but a steep price to pay. Probably not needed in a primary care setting, but nice to have.
