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).
If you would like to purchase an individual subscription to UpToDate for your personal use, you can do so via their website.
