As of June 12, 2023, there will be a seamless move to SSO authentication for accessing UpToDate at: https://www.uptodate.com/login/jhu.edu
Users will see the familiar JHED authentication (screenshots below) when they visit UpToDate while on campus, and will see the new SSO screen when accessing from off campus while off VPN.
After logging in, JHED authentication will occur and the UpToDate screens below will appear, including a Privacy / Cookie notification. Registration of an account in UpToDate is not required.
Cookie preferences should be viewed and set by the user. Wolters Kluwer gathers individual user’s web activity by tracking web pages users visit just before UTD, and those they visit after leaving UTD. This information is linked to individuals and is not anonymized.
Registration on the UpToDate platform is not mandatory. It is NOT NECESSARY to create an account unless a user wishes to earn CME credits through UTD usage.
Authentication is complete after a patron logs in with JHED credentials and “Johns Hopkins University” is visible in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.
