Introduction. Over the 15 years since the Clinical Information Access Portal (CIAP) was launched, usage has continued to increase. This demonstrates the value that NSW Health staff place on access to point of care evidence-based clinical information.
Methods. Web log usage files for all resources available on CIAP have been collected since 1999. Analysis of resource usage was performed to identify patterns of use. Individual account demographics were analysed for the last 3 years to identify key clinical user groups in NSW Health.
Results. CIAP usage has increased significantly over the last 15 years when annual usage was only 2% of that seen in 2012. The most highly accessed resources include MIMS, eTheraputic Guidelines, ProQuest Nursing and Allied Health, Australian Medicines Handbook, and BMJ Best Practice.
Conclusions. CIAP remains an exemplary example of integrating evidence-based practice at the point of care by providing the best available clinical information for all NSW Health.
