ClinicalKey for Physicians

Helping physicians drive better care by delivering fast, credible answers

Get started

Your physicians are seeing a higher volume of patients presenting with comorbidities and other complications. Patients are also better informed and want to make shared decisions with their healthcare providers. This generates more questions in physicians’ minds—about treatment plans, drugs to prescribe, etc.

With Elsevier’s ClinicalKey as your organization’s trusted, complete, and timely information resource, your physicians have everything they need to stay on the cutting edge of medicine with easy access to evidence-based content. Based on the latest standards of care they’ll make the best possible decisions, diagnoses, and treatment plans, helping to create a consistent patient experience.
