Up To Date entries can be formatted in the APA style. Unfortunately, they do not provide a suggested citation at the entry level or an export to EndNote feature to automatically generate the reference for you.

The UpToDate  User Manual's recommended citation appears to be following the format for a book chapter. It is edited by TW Post and published by UpToDate in Waltham, MA. There are no page numbers. The publication year for any topic review should be the current year.

Author, A. (date). Title of chapter. In E. Editor (Ed.), Title of book (pp. xx–xx). Retrieved from http://xxxxxxxxx

Here is an example:

Marion, D.W. (2016). Diaphragmatic pacing. In T. W. Post (Ed.), UpToDate. Retrieved from http://www.uptodate.com/home
