WALTHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As US medical students head back to class, Wolters Kluwer Health is helping to power-up their study time by now offering UpToDate®, a market-leading clinical decision support (CDS) solution, as an available add-on to Anki, the popular, free online flashcard study app. Anki has become an essential memorization tool with a study finding that 70 percent of first-year medical students reported using Anki.
Medical students are deluged with information from day-one. Anki flashcard software is an efficient e-learning tool that helps thousands of students retain and master large amounts of dense and complex information required in medical school and in preparation for the United States Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE), Steps 1, 2 and 3.
With this add-on, students, residents, and other health care professionals with authorized access to UpToDate can connect to UpToDate directly from their Anki flashcards, providing them with quick access to rich, comprehensive evidence-based information while they study. For example, if students want to go beyond surface-level questions and definitions about cardiovascular disease while reviewing a flashcard, they can review related content in UpToDate instantly.
“The UpToDate for Anki add-on makes the trusted CDS expert solution quickly accessible from within one of the most powerful and popular study tools,” said Julie Frey, Director, UpToDate Technology Product Management for Wolters Kluwer Health. “While we built the UpToDate for Anki add-on for medical students, we are happy to report other clinical stakeholders such as residents, physicians, and other healthcare professionals are using and getting value from the add-on as well.”
