What do you like best?

The utility and ease of access is what is the best about uptodate. The fact that it is an app that can be accessed from any device with a thorough search engine is what makes it superior to looking things up on google. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes, the search results are a bit cluttered. I would say work on making the search engine not only search for terms and phrases but have it pull up the articles that have that term mentioned most first. Once in awhile the page that I am looking for is not the first choice but second or third. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I solve clinical problems with uptodate. Look up guidelines for medications and treatments, refreshing pathophysiology and finding the best diagnostic tests to use are all within the scope of uptodate. While sometimes the information provided is due to the bias of the provider writing the article, it is still important to help us keep an open mind of various treatment options.
