New York Health and Hospitals (HHC), the largest municipal healthcare organisation in the US, has chosen Wolters Kluwer Health’s UpToDate Anywhere for its mobile-enabled clinical decision support.

The five-year contract enables HHC to improve patient care by equipping clinicians with anytime and anywhere access to comprehensive, evidence-based, clinical decision support through UpToDate Anywhere.

UpToDate Anywhere’s mobile access is ideal for HHC’s broad geographic presence, which operates 11 acute care hospitals, five skilled nursing facilities, as well as six large diagnostic and treatment centres and more than 70 community clinics.

As HHC doctors and clinicians embrace mobile health initiatives and increasingly adopt devices like iPads, iPhones and other tablets and smartphones as clinical tools, they can now get actionable answers to point-of-care questions.

With UpToDate Anywhere, HHC can support broader opportunities for continuing medical education as, whenever providers research clinical questions through UpToDate, they are simultaneously earning CME credits.

The UpToDate mobile app was rated as one of ‘The Best Apps in Publishing’ by EContent Magazine, and is available in iOS, Android and Windows 8 mobile platforms and via any internet browser.

"UpToDate Anywhere’s mobile access becomes essential for ensuring the availability of its clinical content to all clinicians throughout the organisation." 

Wolters Kluwer Health Clinical Solutions UpToDate vice-president and general manager Dr Denise Basow said that, with an institution the size of New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation, UpToDate Anywhere’s mobile access becomes essential for ensuring the availability of its clinical content to all clinicians throughout the organisation, from central hospitals to clinics in the community.

"Partnering with HHC to improve clinical decision-making at the point-of-care aligns with our mission of improving the quality and effectiveness of healthcare worldwide," Dr Basow said.

HHC is an integrated healthcare delivery system of public hospitals and clinics in New York City, which serves 1.4 million residents with medical, mental health and substance abuse services.

HHC has an extensive and diversified psychiatry programme, including 1,227 inpatient beds and 18,071 discharges, across all of its facilities, with the capacity to care for dual-diagnosed patients with significant co-morbidities such as HIV and alcohol and drug addictions.
