UpToDate and VisualDx Changes

After over two years of assessment and discussion with clinic leadership, the university ended its subscription to UpToDate at the end of June. We still provide DynaMed, which is increasingly leading the field in point-of-care tools, and is much more inclusive of natural, CAM, and integrative medicine.

UTD/DynaMed Comparison

We will also not be renewing our subscription to VisualDx primarily due to limited usage and unsustainable pricing increases, which are geared towards large hospital systems, not teaching institutions.
