This is a great idea.
We have the Up-to-Date resource (along with many other resources) embedded in our EMR and can access it with one click.
Years ago (1999) a colleague and I proposed a grant which would have studied the effect of offering CME credit for doing real-time information look up at the point of care and then track outcomes. Even back then we had those resources and tracking capabilities in our EMR (before we went to Epic) and IT systems. The reviewers were very harsh and said this was not possible and not could not be generalized.
Well they were wrong then and still wrong.
We had the resources available then and still do and now have many more available.
The EMR systems have the capability to use the codified reason for visit, codified diagnoses, procedures and orders to pre-stage searches for information about the clinical condition for which the patient is being seen. We just need the ambition and leadership to push this to happen. It is really a very little step in the direction of AI aided diagnosis and treatment. We know the human brain has great potential but with some aids, if we accept the help, could do so much more.

FYI - This is a small study, but the findings are dramatic: Using Up-to-Date improved diagnosis substantially in an adult ambulatory care setting.
