Works well for family med and peds primary care. Would not be well suited to wound healing/hyperbaric medicine practice in current configuration as the specific documentation requirements of wound management and hyperbaric treatments don't mesh well with the layout and forms that I observed.

UpToDate

  • On patient rounds (working with the medical team and providing them updates on various therapies
  • Answering drug information questions (MDs questions that may need further review and response)
  • Updating lecture material (ensuring upToDate data)
  • Patient education utility (ensuring appropriate and up to date patient information)
  • Not useful for a comprehensive clinical review e.g. writing a paper, but it is not designed for that function

Pros

athenaClinicals

  • Quality programs - able to see what measures are outstanding for the patient
  • Reporting - able to report on multiple financial reports as well as clinical information
  • Standardization of clinical information - the system forces users within the same specialty to use the same templates (as a starting point), therefore it is easier to standardize protocols and treatments of care

UpToDate

  • List relevant information on various diseases and conditions.
  • Summarize pertinent information.
  • Easy navigation across information and subjects.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

athenaClinicals

  • The schedule needs to be improved. You should be able to see the schedule in a day, a week , in a month view and be able to schedule directly from the schedule.
  • It's difficult to name items because they are traditionally corrected very quickly

UpToDate

  • The app is sometimes a bit hard to use

Overall the system is good. Actually, this was supposed to be the universal EMR when it came out during the Bush administration.

UpToDate provides evidence-based, currently relevant medical information in an easy and clear method. The software has directly helped me stay up to date in medical treatments and new information on etiology of diseases. This information has directly and positively improved my care and treatments for various musculoskeletal conditions and diseases.

For a surgery center application, it is much better to use a system that is uniquely designed for surgery centers. Using Athena as a less than desirable work around has been a frustrating experience.
Dale Bowman | TrustRadius Reviewer

UpToDate

UpToDate offers a much more comprehensive tool when compared with Epocrates. Although both provide good drug references UpToDate goes far beyond the Epocrates tool in terms of clinical disease diagnostic data.
