You can now access DynaMed's valuable, evidence-based content anywhere with the new DynaMed mobile app. The new app has been completely redesigned to make it easier and faster for staff to find answers to clinical questions.
- Download the free DynaMed app from the iTunes or Google Play app store.
- Access DynaMed from an AHS computer.
- Within Dynamed, click on the "Mobile" link located at the top of the page within the blue header and enter your email address (one that can be accessed from your mobile device). An authentication email will be sent to you.
- Open the DynaMed email from your device.
- Within 48 hours, tap on the underlined authentication key link in the email to authenticate the app.
Note: after 48 hours, you will need to request a new authentication email.
- Before you begin using your app, you will be asked to download the latest content updates. This process can take from 5 to 30 minutes, and depending upon your data connection and/or data plan you may wish to delay content download until you are on a wifi network.
The DynaMed app is a complimentary part of our DynaMed subscription. This allows AHS staff to access to DynaMed on their iPhones, iPads and Android devices for no extra charge. The app has also been designed for easy, one-time authentication via email, making the process as convenient as possible.
