Medasys Integrates UpToDate into DxCare

UpToDate, the world’s leading clinical decision support resource, will be available in just one click as part of the Dossier Patient DxCare solution, providing clinicians with fast and comprehensive decision-making assistance.

Clamart, 12 May 2014 – Medasys, the leading French medical software publisher and integrator for public and private healthcare establishments in the fields of patient record solutions, healthcare delivery and technical platforms (biology, imaging and pharmacy), announced today a partnership wherein it will integrate UpToDate® into its industry leading DxCare patient record solution. The partnership with Wolters Kluwer Health, a leading global provider of information for healthcare professionals and students, will provide DxCare practitioners with one-click access to the world’s most widely-used evidence-based clinical decision support resource to support clinical decision making at the point of care.

UpToDate, which is used by more than 850,000 clinicians in 164 countries and in more than 29,000 hospitals, enables practitioners in a complex clinical context to quickly, easily and securely find information that has been authored, reviewed and validated by medical experts.

Based on the key points noted in the DxCare record (summary), the DxCare user will have direct access to the associated search results in UpToDate, delivering multiple benefits for practitioners: the integration enables them to remain in their clinical context; it saves time by avoiding the need to re-enter search terms; and provides direct access to UpToDate in DxCare without an additional log-in.

The integration of UpToDate into DxCare will also benefit healthcare organizations by improving quality of care and patient safety, as well as serving as a resource for residents in training. Indeed, junior doctors will be able to access recommendations from world-renowned experts to aid in diagnostic and treatment decisions covering more than 20 medical specialties.

“Our mission is focused on improving the quality and efficiency of healthcare worldwide by improving clinical decisions at the point of care. It is therefore important to work with Medasys to offer physicians the most trustworthy and current clinical content to care for their patients," said Denise Basow, M.D., Vice President/General Manager, UpToDate at Wolters Kluwer Health, Clinical Solutions.

“This partnership with UpToDate, the leading clinical decision support system in the world, provides added value for all our clients, particularly those who have embarked on the process of obtaining HIMSS level 6 certification and above. This integration has already been welcomed by our DxCare clients who already use UpToDate,” states Jean-Jacques Meaux, Vice President, Innovation & Products Strategy.
