Defense Health Agency purchases DynaMed for all providers in the Military Health System. It should be noted, however, that DynaMed is part of a larger package intended to support evidence-based medicine. Here's a link to DynaMed and Micromedex with Watson (it's currently working best in Firefox).

  • DynaMed: An electronic evidence-based, primary care database designed to provide point-of-care health information.
  • Isabel: The DDx Generator, a differential diagnosis tool, covers over 10,000 conditions, all ages and all specialties. As well as clinical features Isabel utilises additional algorithms to only present those results relevant to the patient’s age, sex and region.
  • MEDLINE Complete: MEDLINE Complete is a full-text database of roughly 2120 biomedical / health journals and reports.
  • Patient Education Reference Center: Provides nurses and healthcare professionals with patient information handouts that can be customized, printed and given to a patient at the point of care. Patient Education Reference Center handouts are easy to read, include medical illustrations and are available in multiple languages.
