Changes to FirstConsult

Upcoming changes to First Consult

Some important and exciting changes to First Consult are coming soon. We are working to make First Consult an even more efficient and useful tool for clinicians and students to get evidence-based answers for the point of care.

First Consult will soon be provided as a fully integrated part of MD Consult, available for institutions, groups, and individuals to purchase in addition to their MD Consult subscription.

By making First Consult content available through the MD Consult interface, customers who have purchased both products will benefit in several ways by receiving the following:

* Access to a single, integrated resource that provides a complete clinical reference solution, combining evidence-based answers for the point of care with the highest quality, world-class, deep-reference information contained in leading medical texts and primary literature.

* Improved ease of use, taking advantage of MD Consult's new simplified and streamlined user interface and design.

* Enhanced search results with MD Consult's new smarter search that makes it easier to find the right information.

We have received significant input from customers regarding how we can make First Consult and MD Consult more valuable and easier to use. The feedback and suggestions have been very positive, and we look forward to providing an enhanced tool by which customers can efficiently find answers to pressing clinical questions and make better treatment decisions.

Several resources are available if you would like to learn more:

* A frequently asked questions document Microsoft Word icon provides more information about the upcoming changes.

* A downloadable slide presentation Microsoft PowerPoint icon includes an overview of the changes and some screenshots
