Knowledge Resource Service does not subscribe to UpToDate.

AHS is committed to equitable enterprise-wide access to information resources; licensing costs for UpToDate cannot be supported with the available budget. The University of Calgary canceled its UpToDate subscription effective January 1, 2017, while the University of Alberta has never subscribed to UpToDate.

AHS recognizes that point of care tools are extremely valuable to clinicians. An AHS-wide advisory group initially recommended the licensing of DynaMed as a financially sustainable option for AHS and AHS’s Connect Care Initiative has endorsed it as the physician-focused POC reference resource integrated within the Clinical Information System (CIS).

DynaMed is a clinician-focused, online point of care clinical reference tool, available province-wide to all AHS physicians and staff via the KRS website. It is also available as a mobile application, compatible with Apple and Android devices. DynaMed is a high-quality evidence-based product well accepted by Canadian physicians and universities.
