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".

17th Cloud Expo, taking place Nov 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS – software, platform, and infrastructure as a service.
The recent trends like cloud computing, social, mobile and Internet of Things are forcing enterprises to modernize in order to compete in the competitive globalized markets. However, enterprises are approaching newer technologies with a more silo-ed way, gaining only sub optimal benefits. The Modern Enterprise model is presented as a newer way to think of enterprise IT, which takes a more holistic approach to embracing modern technologies.
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
There's no doubt that the Internet of Things is driving the next wave of innovation. Google has spent billions over the past few months vacuuming up companies that specialize in smart appliances and machine learning. Already, Philips light bulbs, Audi automobiles, and Samsung washers and dryers can communicate with and be controlled from mobile devices. To take advantage of the opportunities the Internet of Things brings to your business, you'll want to start preparing now.
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
The world is at a tipping point where the technology, the device and global adoption are converging to such a point that we will see an explosion of a world where smartphone devices not only allow us to talk to each other, but allow for communication between everything – serving as a central hub from which we control our world – MediaTek is at the heart of both driving this and allowing the markets to drive this reality forward themselves.
