Wolters Kluwer Health Donates Electronic Medical Resources

May 08, 2009

To help physicians, pediatricians, nurses, and other healthcare professionals combat the current H1N1 flu outbreak, Ovid, part of Wolters Kluwer Health’s Medical Research business and a global provider of development and delivery of customizable electronic research information for the medical, scientific and academic communities, announced that it is providing hospitals and healthcare centers around the world, including Mexico, with free 30-day access to the Ovid MEDLINE database and CABI's Global Health database on the OvidSP platform. As an aggregator of medical content, Ovid also invites other publishers to join its efforts to support immediate access to important medical and scientific resources so healthcare workers can quickly and effectively respond to the outbreak. In addition, UpToDate, Ovid’s sister company within Wolters Kluwer Health, is also supporting the global fight against H1N1 by providing free access to professional and patient articles.
