"Pediatric Care Online continues to provide a robust and evolving collection of current, evidence-based pediatric medical information accessible electronically on a variety of devices. The functionality of the portal and continual expansion of relevant and evolving information and resource types supports its value as an important informational tool in a pediatric clinical environment. While not suitable for all library users, pediatric clinicians in training and medical students may benefit from familiarity with the Pediatric Care Online portal and tools for use on clinical rotations, with its integration to electronic health records and ability to inform clinical decisions."

– Rachel M. Oleaga, ML, Northern Essex Community College

“Having been exposed to Pediatric Care Online™ (PCO) in my residency training, I was eager to bring this resource to our campus and share it with my colleagues and with our students.  I’m excited to hear about the changes with PCO." 

–Philip Joseph Malouf, MD, FAAP, Assistant Professor of Medicine, Touro University College of Osteopathic Medicine

“As a resident, you want to have 24-hour access to information.  Having Pediatric Care Online (PCO) on my mobile and laptop makes me more efficient. All tools you need – Red Book, Bright Futures, webinars, AAP policy, and even patient handouts – are comprised in one single resource. I can rely on PCO because it is accurate, concise and up to date. I just love it!”

– Ingrid Hansen, MD

“Great clinical reference at your fingertips when you need it. A must-have tool for the busy pediatrician. I use Pediatric Care Online (PCO) every day because it is quick, to the point, up to date information.”

 – Ramon Fonseca, MD 

“I have been a devoted subscriber to Pediatric Care Online (PCO) since 2008.  During that time, it has been my go-to resource during the clinical day.  PCO combines three resources that I find invaluable on a daily basis while caring for my pediatric patients:  AAP Textbook of Pediatric Care, Bright Futures and Red Book.  In the day of EHR, I make sure that PCO is always available on the office computers so that I have quick access and I am even able to print out information for easy facilitation of learning points and guidance for my patients."

– Philip Cook, MD, JD, FAAP

“The thing that strikes me is that it is very versatile. I typically have it pulled up on my office computer and refer to it during the day as needed. I wholeheartedly and enthusiastically endorse its use and feel that anyone involved in the care of children can benefit greatly from this."

– Miller J. Sullivan, MD, FAAP

  “This program is very good!  I'm glad the AAP came up with this.”
