ClinicalKey replaces MDConsult
Elsevier is phasing out MDConsult and replacing it with their new product, ClinicalKey. They will cease updating the MDConsult platform December 2013 and only update content through 2014. Elsevier offered the Library several ways to migrate to ClinicalKey. The University Library chose the most cost effective option which is to migrate now, July 2013.
MDConsult will continue to be available for Loma Linda University Health entities through August 9, 2013, after which it will no longer be available. To begin using ClinicalKey now (from on-site), please visit www.clinicalkey.com. You will be able to find links to ClinicalKey from all of the same places you now can find MDConsult (the Library’s home page, the VIP Intranet Clinical Desktop, etc.).
What is ClinicalKey?
ClinicalKey includes the MDConsult database but also adds hundreds of additional eBooks, eJournals, guidelines, videos, images, First Consult, Procedures Consult, and more into one platform with expanded content.
For more information you need to know about accessing ClinicalKey at LLU please see the ClinicalKey tab in this LibGuide.
Quality Point-of-Care Tools
The Library’s subscription to UpToDate ended on May 31, 2012. Unfortunately, the cost to continue the subscription was prohibitively expensive for the University Library to maintain.
The Library, in conjunction with the Medical Center, provides other quality point-of-care tools, which you can use instead. Find these point-of-care tools on the VIP Intranet Clinical Desktop and on the LLU Libraries Databases page:
DynaMed is an evidence-based clinical reference tool created by physicians for physicians and other health-care professionals for use primarily at the point-of-care. It contains clinically-organized summaries for over 3200 medical topics. DynaMed is updated daily and monitors over 500 medical journals and systematic evidence review databases in order to integrate new evidence within existing content.
ClinicalKey, formerly MDConsult but with expanded content including hundreds of additional eBooks, eJournals, guidelines, videos,images, First Consult, Procedures Consult, and more into one platform with a single-search interface.
Micromedex in addition to comprehensive and reliable drug information provides both in-depth and summary clinical monographs through DISEASEDEX Emergency Medicine (evidence-based acute information) and DISEASEDEX General Medicine (evidence-based diagnosis and treatment information).
These and more are available from on- and off-campus and via mobile devices. Mobile Access instructions for these and other resources are available on the Library’s Mobile Access guide.
