UpToDate® presenta MobileComplete™ para Android

Wolters Kluwer Health, proveedor líder de información para profesionales y estudiantes médicos, anunció que UpToDate, parte de Wolters Kluwer Health, lanzó MobileComplete™ para usuarios de Android. La versión local de su aplicación gratuita que ya está lista para descargar, UpToDate MobileComplete™, es la versión para dispositivos móviles más rápida de UpToDate, y brinda a los médicos clínicos acceso a recomendaciones prácticas fundamentadas en la evidencia, incluso sin estar conectados a Internet. Con el lanzamiento de esta versión, UpToDate permite a sus clientes acceder de forma local a información confiable, fundamentada en la evidencia en su iPad, iPhone o dispositivos Android.

UpToDate MobileComplete le ofrece a los abonados individuales la velocidad y comodidad de UpToDate Mobile, una aplicación gratuita a pedido para iPhone, iPad y dispositivos Android, y la lleva un paso más allá, permitiéndoles descargar el contenido clínico de UpToDate para usarlo en forma local en su dispositivo. Con MobileComplete, los médicos clínicos pueden utilizar UpToDate sin disponer de una conexión a Internet (incluso en ubicaciones sin ninguna opción de conectividad), mediante el acceso en forma local al conocimiento clínico que contiene la base de datos UpToDate. Para asegurar que los usuarios dispongan de las últimas actualizaciones de las recomendaciones, cuando exista una conexión a red la aplicación comprobará que la información solicitada sea la más reciente.

"A lo largo de los años, UpToDate ha sido un recurso muy valioso para todo tipo de atención al cliente. Como médico clínico, lo uso en cualquier lugar, en la clínica, la sala de obstetricia, el hospital, la unidad de terapia intensiva, los hogares de ancianos, albergues o dondequiera que esté", aseguró el doctor Jason Morgenson. "UpToDate presta atención a las necesidades de sus clientes, como demuestran las nuevas aplicaciones para dispositivos móviles. Nunca dejan de desarrollar y mejorar UpToDate con cada actualización".

Tanto UpToDate MobileComplete como UpToDate Mobile para iPhone, iPad y dispositivos Android ofrecen características fundamentales como el uso de marcadores, búsquedas que se completan automáticamente, guardar el historial de búsqueda, calculadoras optimizadas y la obtención de crédito de CME con cada búsqueda de consultas clínicas. Además, UpToDate MobileComplete les permite a los médicos clínicos reducir su consumo de datos en caso de poseer un plan de datos limitado.

"Estoy sumamente satisfecho con UpToDate, sobre todo con el acceso en dispositivos móviles, en cualquier momento y en cualquier lugar, que pone a mi alcance conocimientos médicos basados en evidencia y revisados por otros médicos. El sumar créditos CME cada vez que consulto un tema es un beneficio adicional", manifestó la Doctora Anna Mathew, directora del departamento de salud pública y servicios sociales de Guam.

"La incorporación al uso diario de aplicaciones para dispositivos móviles por parte de los médicos clínicos va en aumento. Hay médicos de más de 130 países que usan actualmente aplicaciones UpToDate para dispositivos móviles, totalizando un 25% del uso por parte de médicos clínicos individuales solamente en el último año", subrayó Denise Basow, doctora en medicina y presidente y editora en jefe de UpToDate para Wolters Kluwer Health. "Nos comprometemos a seguir cumpliendo nuestro objetivo global de mejorar la atención del paciente en el punto de atención, y brindarle a los médicos clínicos acceso a UpToDate desde cualquier lugar y en cualquier momento es esencial para lograr ese objetivo".

WebRTC sits at the intersection between VoIP and the Web. As such, it poses some interesting challenges for those developing services on top of it, but also for those who need to test and monitor these services. In his session at WebRTC Summit, Tsahi Levent-Levi, co-founder of testRTC, reviewed the various challenges posed by WebRTC when it comes to testing and monitoring and on ways to overcome them.
"A lot of times people will come to us and have a very diverse set of requirements or very customized need and we'll help them to implement it in a fashion that you can't just buy off of the shelf," explained Nick Rose, CTO of Enzu, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Every successful software product evolves from an idea to an enterprise system. Notably, the same way is passed by the product owner's company. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Oleg Lola, CEO of MobiDev, will provide a generalized overview of the evolution of a software product, the product owner, the needs that arise at various stages of this process, and the value brought by a software development partner to the product owner as a response to these needs.
WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, introduced the technologies required for implementing these idea...
The WebRTC Summit New York, to be held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY, announces that its Call for Papers is now open. Topics include all aspects of improving IT delivery by eliminating waste through automated business models leveraging cloud technologies. WebRTC Summit is co-located with 20th International Cloud Expo and @ThingsExpo. WebRTC is the future of browser-to-browser communications, and continues to make inroads into the traditional, difficult, plug-in web co...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and shared the must-have mindsets for removing complexity from the develop...
While not quite mainstream yet, WebRTC is starting to gain ground with Carriers, Enterprises and Independent Software Vendors (ISV’s) alike. WebRTC makes it easy for developers to add audio and video communications into their applications by using Web browsers as their platform. But like any market, every customer engagement has unique requirements, as well as constraints. And of course, one size does not fit all. In her session at WebRTC Summit, Dr. Natasha Tamaskar, Vice President, Head of C...
Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, discussed the impact of technology on identity. Sho...
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Big Data engines are powering a lot of service businesses right now. Data is collected from users from wearable technologies, web behaviors, purchase behavior as well as several arbitrary data points we’d never think of. The demand for faster and bigger engines to crunch and serve up the data to services is growing exponentially. You see a LOT of correlation between “Cloud” and “Big Data” but on Big Data and “Hybrid,” where hybrid hosting is the sanest approach to the Big Data Infrastructure pro...
Businesses are struggling to manage the information flow and interactions between all of these new devices and things jumping on their network, and the apps and IT systems they control. The data businesses gather is only helpful if they can do something with it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Witeck, Principal Technology Strategist at Citrix, discussed how different the impact of IoT will be for large businesses, expanding how IoT will allow large organizations to make their legacy applica...
