How do I set up an alert from the DynaMed Recent Updates page?

On the Recent Updates page, you can set up alerts to be notified when all topics change or when specific topics within a category change.

To set up a topic alert in DynaMed:

  1. Use the Limit by Category drop-down to select a category – default is All.

  2. Click the Practice Changing Updates Only box if you would like to only receive updates that are “Practice Changing.”

  3. Once you have the display showing the way you would like to view the topics in your alert, click the Alert icon in the right column.

    The alert pop-up box is displayed.

  4. Select the alert frequency from the How often drop-down menu and enter your e-mail address in the field provided.

  5. Click Create Alert.

  6. Once the alert is created, you will receive an e-mail to “verify” that you set up the alert. Once verified, you’ll receive alerts based on the frequency that you requested. Every alert e-mail includes a link that allows you to cancel the alert at any time (cancelling an alert is a simple, one “click” process).
