Virtual Works Technologies launches a new, easy way for doctors around the world to stay-up to-date on the latest medicinal findings with up2dateMD.com

Up2dateMD.com is a new and easy tool that allows doctors and medical students alike the chance to effortlessly keep up with new medical articles and information in any subject.

Virtual Works Technologies specializes in electronic medical record software, however, for the past five years they have started to develop diagnostics aid tools for physicians.

One of the tools they have created is Up2dateMD.com. This site allows users to enter their email address and select an area of interest. Interests can range from anything a specific disease or types of treatment. Once subscribed, users get selected medical articles information such as the name of the journal publication, title of the research and authors. They are also given a link to further information. The link leads to the article’s abstract and when available, to the full text of the article. The biomedical articles’ information are obtained by the up2datemd.com bot, a software that “scans” the web for information, like the ones used by search engines, and collects it from public domain medical and scientific databases, medical journals databases and government agencies.

“Up-to-date information is critical in the medical field,” states Carlos Lopes. “If physicians can access relevant research faster, then healthcare can improve around the world.”

New science and medical breakthroughs are happening more and more frequently with the advancement of technology. It can be difficult for some to keep up with the information pertinent to their specialties and interests. Up2dateMD.com helps physicians easily solve that problem and sends the basic information for new research directly to them.

For example, John Doe, MD is a gastroenterologist who specializes in cystic fibrosis and wants to receive relevant articles on new finding concerning the specific diseases. He’ll fill in his email address and the subject “cystic fibrosis” and submits. The website automatically loads the latest 20 articles published on the topic. John can then set a “watch” that checks every day for new articles. When a new article is published, the software sends John an email with all of the basic information and a link to the new medical article abstract and full text link if it is available. Each subscriber can create up to 20 "watches" for medical subjects of their interest.
The subscription is priced at USD 59.99/year for physicians and USD 19.99/year for medical students.

What started as a service for physicians in Brazil is now expanding internationally to help doctors around the world help their patients. Up2Date.com is the easy, efficient way for anyone in the medical field to stay up to date.
