Editor's Review

For those healthcare practitioners who already have an institutional or individual ClinicalKey subscription, Elsevier's new mobile app is an outstanding way to access the content on this powerful medical reference platform. The ClinicalKey app is impressively well designed, and allows users to enter any search term, sort the results by either relevance or publication date, and filter them by specialty, date, type(s) of content - books, abstracts, articles, clinical trials, images, practice guidelines, First Consult (a point-of-care decision-making tool), patient education, drug monographs, or videos.

Practitioners who don't already have access to ClinicalKey, now have one more reason to obtain it. This app is a highly effective way to find reliable answers in a hurry. It is highly recommended.
