Knowledge and resources you trust at your fingertips when it matters most to you and your patients.

K2A is an online platform for healthcare professionals to:

  1. Build a Network: connect with colleagues and thought leaders to create network within which to share clinical evidence and wisdom to improve care.
  2. Share Evidence: Post or use recommended tools, algorithms, diagnostic pathways, guidelines or OSCAR eForms to inform and support care.
  3. Integrate Knowledge: Access context-specific clinical evidence from trusted network within OSCAR at point-of-care.

K2A for clinicians (Individual Account)

Designed for clinicians who need quick and easy access from within OSCAR to trusted clinical decision support relevant to each patient at the point-of care.

K2A for clinics/institutions (Shared Account)

K2A Channels are also available for any person or organization who wish to promote and improve access to their information, tools or practice guidelines to enhance point-of-care decisions. K2A Channel accounts also provide analytics to capture the reach of the content within the K2A network.
