Stat!Ref also provides a customizable Evidence Alerts feed. Create a My STAT!Ref “Preferences” account to receive these alerts at selectable regular intervals. To do this,

Stat!Ref provides Mobile Access for IPhone, IPad,Blackberry and Android. See http://www.statref.com/products/srMobile.html for details. You can activate mobile access via your "Preferences" account. Once in your individual account, click "Temporary Log-in Account," and follow directions. Please note that for security reasons, your mobile access must be renewed every 90 days. Once your account is established, you will not need to log in with TMC Library to use mobile Stat!Ref. For a video tutorial on setting up mobile access, see this link . NOTE RE. ICD-10:  The Library has a separate subscription to the ICD-10 draft Clinical Modification and Procedure Coding System documents. Stat!Ref could not integrate our individual subscriptions into the larger database platform accessed by all participating libraries statewide, so these two items are best located by using the e-books tab of the A-Z list (just input "icd 10" and these titles will come to the top) or by searching the library catalog for ICD-10. We hope that in mid-2014 the ICD-10 resources will be included in the statewide subscription.
