Epic Access to UpToDate and DynaMed

How can I access UpToDate and DynaMed Plus for reference material from within Epic?

Start by going to Centerlink and click on the Epic button under Quick Links and log in.

  1. Click the Epic button (located in the upper left corner) to open the Epic menu.
  2. Click or hover over the Help option.
  3. Click on either the UpToDate or DynaMed option.

You will see items for UptoDate and DynaMed that will take you to these sites and log you in using your Epic credentials. The sites will run in a web browser window on the same server that is providing Epic, and not on your computer's browser.

Can I click on clinical information in Epic to see reference information about it?

Yes. For example, you can right-click on a problem in the Problem List and see a menu item "ClinKB." 

You can do a similar search from the medication and allergy lists.
