We were told by UTD that they would modify the remote charges if the
hospital selected it for the EMR.  The cost is still very high compared
to other resources.  And yes, CME is included now for institutions.

We are completing an evaluation of 5 products to select one to link from
the physicians' problem list.

I would caution you about setting up UTD within your EMR.  IF your EMR
is accessible to doctors from home then UTD would be accessible from
home and your hospital would have to pay the crazy home access costs.
We cannot add it to our EMR for that reason.

I just looked at the UpToDate Website on the About page.

Here is the information I found regarding CME:

Yes you can earn CME from UpToDate: 

	Earn CME while using UpToDate to answer your clinical questions.

According to the website you can earn CME either through an individual
subscription OR access UpToDate through an EMR. 

You can now access UpToDate through your EMR if the EMR is compatible,
and you set it up.
