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".

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

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.
