UpToDate® presenta MobileComplete™ para Android

Wolters Kluwer Health, proveedor líder de información para profesionales y estudiantes médicos, anunció que UpToDate, parte de Wolters Kluwer Health, lanzó MobileComplete™ para usuarios de Android. La versión local de su aplicación gratuita que ya está lista para descargar, UpToDate MobileComplete™, es la versión para dispositivos móviles más rápida de UpToDate, y brinda a los médicos clínicos acceso a recomendaciones prácticas fundamentadas en la evidencia, incluso sin estar conectados a Internet. Con el lanzamiento de esta versión, UpToDate permite a sus clientes acceder de forma local a información confiable, fundamentada en la evidencia en su iPad, iPhone o dispositivos Android.

UpToDate MobileComplete le ofrece a los abonados individuales la velocidad y comodidad de UpToDate Mobile, una aplicación gratuita a pedido para iPhone, iPad y dispositivos Android, y la lleva un paso más allá, permitiéndoles descargar el contenido clínico de UpToDate para usarlo en forma local en su dispositivo. Con MobileComplete, los médicos clínicos pueden utilizar UpToDate sin disponer de una conexión a Internet (incluso en ubicaciones sin ninguna opción de conectividad), mediante el acceso en forma local al conocimiento clínico que contiene la base de datos UpToDate. Para asegurar que los usuarios dispongan de las últimas actualizaciones de las recomendaciones, cuando exista una conexión a red la aplicación comprobará que la información solicitada sea la más reciente.

"A lo largo de los años, UpToDate ha sido un recurso muy valioso para todo tipo de atención al cliente. Como médico clínico, lo uso en cualquier lugar, en la clínica, la sala de obstetricia, el hospital, la unidad de terapia intensiva, los hogares de ancianos, albergues o dondequiera que esté", aseguró el doctor Jason Morgenson. "UpToDate presta atención a las necesidades de sus clientes, como demuestran las nuevas aplicaciones para dispositivos móviles. Nunca dejan de desarrollar y mejorar UpToDate con cada actualización".

Tanto UpToDate MobileComplete como UpToDate Mobile para iPhone, iPad y dispositivos Android ofrecen características fundamentales como el uso de marcadores, búsquedas que se completan automáticamente, guardar el historial de búsqueda, calculadoras optimizadas y la obtención de crédito de CME con cada búsqueda de consultas clínicas. Además, UpToDate MobileComplete les permite a los médicos clínicos reducir su consumo de datos en caso de poseer un plan de datos limitado.

"Estoy sumamente satisfecho con UpToDate, sobre todo con el acceso en dispositivos móviles, en cualquier momento y en cualquier lugar, que pone a mi alcance conocimientos médicos basados en evidencia y revisados por otros médicos. El sumar créditos CME cada vez que consulto un tema es un beneficio adicional", manifestó la Doctora Anna Mathew, directora del departamento de salud pública y servicios sociales de Guam.

"La incorporación al uso diario de aplicaciones para dispositivos móviles por parte de los médicos clínicos va en aumento. Hay médicos de más de 130 países que usan actualmente aplicaciones UpToDate para dispositivos móviles, totalizando un 25% del uso por parte de médicos clínicos individuales solamente en el último año", subrayó Denise Basow, doctora en medicina y presidente y editora en jefe de UpToDate para Wolters Kluwer Health. "Nos comprometemos a seguir cumpliendo nuestro objetivo global de mejorar la atención del paciente en el punto de atención, y brindarle a los médicos clínicos acceso a UpToDate desde cualquier lugar y en cualquier momento es esencial para lograr ese objetivo".

Containers are not new, but renewed commitments to performance, flexibility, and agility have propelled them to the top of the agenda today. By working without the need for virtualization and its overhead, containers are seen as the perfect way to deploy apps and services across multiple clouds. Containers can handle anything from file types to operating systems and services, including microservices. What are microservices? Unlike what the name implies, microservices are not necessarily small, but are focused on specific tasks. The ability for developers to deploy multiple containers – thous...
Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, will discuss how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the data to create additional revenue streams, such as improved warranties or premium features. Or slash...
The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...
Through WebRTC, audio and video communications are being embedded more easily than ever into applications, helping carriers, enterprises and independent software vendors deliver greater functionality to their end users. With today’s business world increasingly focused on outcomes, users’ growing calls for ease of use, and businesses craving smarter, tighter integration, what’s the next step in delivering a richer, more immersive experience? That richer, more fully integrated experience comes about through a Communications Platform as a Service which allows for messaging, screen sharing, video...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
