DynaMed Plus Now Available!

Posted May 5th 2015

The new DynaMed Plus combines the evidence-based, point-of-care content of DynaMed with a new simplified layout. This initial release of DynaMed Plus features an easy to use search page with well-organized topic pages and more precise and condensed results lists. DynaMed Plus includes newly integrated drug information and lab recommendations provided by Micromedex. DynaMed Plus maintains the same trusted and up-to-date information as the original DynaMed database and the familiar, easy to use medical calculators and decision support information of classic DynaMed. Exciting new materials and features are planned for release in the coming months with a full release planned for June.

Note: To find patient information handouts from the database, first search or browse for your appropriate subject term and select it; then choose the Patient Information tab from the list of sub-categories that appears under the selected search term.

DynaMed Plus also provides an all new mobile app for Apple and Android devices.
