UpToDate Advanced: Access New Tools to Improve Patient Care

UpToDate Web Ad

The NIH Library is pleased to introduce UpToDate Advanced, an enhanced version of UpToDate. NIH staff can now use two additional tools in the expanded version of this evidence-based application:

  • UpToDate Pathways: Tailor patient recommendations based on evidence with interactive decision-making workflows. Access “UpToDate Pathways” in the top navigation menu, or while in your patient-specific search results recommendations.
  • Lab Interpretation: Evaluate and decide on next steps for lab results, accessible from “Contents” in the top navigation menu or right within your search results.
