Wolters Kluwer, Health equips astronauts at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) on board the International Space Station with the most current medical information and access to expert-authored recommendations.
Wolters Kluwer’s UpToDate can be used at the point of care, even with limited internet connectivity through UpToDate MobileComplete by downloading content to an iPad.
Speaking about the support resource, Denise Basow, CEO of Clinical Effectiveness, Wolters Kluwer, Health said: “For over a quarter-century, UpToDate has served as the world’s most trusted clinical decision support resource. Now, we are proud to be used on the ISS, 250 miles (403 km) above the earth’s surface. Wolters Kluwer leverages insights from thousands of world-renowned experts, authors, editors and peer reviewers to help clinicians make the best care decisions wherever they practice — even in space.”
On earth, the offline accessibility of UpToDate MobileComplete is an important clinical asset in rural regions with limited internet connectivity as well as in disaster zones. UpToDate MobileComplete can be an invaluable resource when regions temporarily lose power and internet.
