Depth and Breadth of Content
UpToDate topics are viewed more than 50 million times per month, and our 2018 subscriber survey found that clinicians find the answers to their question over 94% of the time. This success reflects the breadth (25 specialties) and depth of our clinical content (over 11,600 topic reviews, each of which answers multiple clinical questions).
UpToDate is the ONLY clinical decision support resource associated with improved outcomes.
More than 80 research studies confirm widespread usage of UpToDate and its association with improved patient care and hospital performance. One, a study by researchers at Harvard published in the Journal of Hospital Medicine in 2011, showed that hospitals using UpToDate experienced shortened hospital stays, fewer deaths and better quality performance than non-UpToDate hospitals.
