Over the years, more than 80 research studies have demonstrated that the widespread usage of UpToDate is associated with improved patient care and hospital performance.
In 2011, researchers at Harvard University published a compelling study confirming that the use of UpToDate over a three year period was associated with:
- Improved quality of every condition on the Hospital Quality Alliance Metrics
- Shorter lengths of stay (372,000 hospital days saved per year)
- Lower mortality rates (saving 11,500 lives per three year period)
"The data suggests the use of computerized tools such as UpToDate enable better decisions, better outcomes and better care." — Ashish Jha, M.D., M.P.H., Harvard, and Study Author
