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 now AHS’s Connect Care Initiative has endorsed DynaMed as the physician-focused POC reference resource to be 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. Learn more about DynaMed.

If you would like to purchase an individual subscription to UpToDate for your personal use, you can do so via their website. CMA members may also take advantage of various discounts offered on individual subscriptions to UpToDate. See the CMA website for more details.
