tool with clinically-organized
summaries for nearly 3,200
topics. DynaMed is updated
daily and monitors the content
of over 500 medical journals
and systematic evidence
review databases. Each
publication is thoroughly
reviewed, and each article is
evaluated for clinical
relevance and scientific
validity. The new evidence is
then integrated with existing
content, and overall conclusions are changed as appropriate representing a synthesis of the best available evidence. A mobile
application is available for iPhone, iPad, Android, Blackberry, Microsoft Mobile and Palm.
Visual Dx lets clinicians visually validate a diagnosis, look up steps for management and patient care, or build a differential diagnosis
for puzzling presentations from their iPhone or iPod Touch.
