UpToDate, is claimed to be the only clinical decision support resource, which leverages evidence-based content to enable improved patient outcomes and quality care. Cloudnine Hospital selected UpToDate for its Pathways, which provide interactive guidance along critical decision points, personalised for each patient.
UpToDate Pathways will also be used in the development of local clinical pathways that are specific to the hospital and designed to improve quality performance metrics through the adoption of evidence-based medicine.

Raviganesh Venkataraman, CEO, Cloudnine Group of Hospitals, said, “Customer safety is our priority and innovation has always been core to our business.

Thus, integrating UpToDate will help support the clinicians to drive consistent high-quality care, minimise errors and improve hospital efficiency to provide seamless maternity services.”

Maternal and pediatric care are one of the topmost priorities in India and digital solutions are a way to help healthcare practitioners to provide best medical practices for quality care to women and children. As the first mover and pioneer in this sector, Cloudnine has been innovating constantly to handle high-risk pregnancies and critical cases.
