Founded in 1992 and sold to Wolters Kluwer in 2008, UpToDate now indexes 9,000 topics in 19 medical specialties, including a recently released module for general surgery. Still run as a semi-autonomous company, UpToDate claims to have more than 450,000 clinician users in 149 countries.
ProVation is the software that puts medical evidence into clinical practice. As previously reported by InformationWeek Healthcare, ProVation has "done most of the legwork so that the order sets and UpToDate content can be integrated into your hospital's [EHR and CPOE] systems, using standards such as HL7 and InfoButton API, and the right terminology, including SNOMED CT, RxNorm, LOINC, CPT, and ICD-9."
