Charlottesville, VA July 1 , 2004 -- Handango, the leading provider of mobile downloads, announced the winners for the annual Handango Champion Awards at an awards ceremony in San Diego, California on June 25, 2004. Unbound Medicine, a leading provider of handheld, wireless, and Web solutions for healthcare, won the award for the Best Medical Application for Windows Mobile™ -based Pocket PC devices.
The Handango Champion Awards recognize outstanding mobile software applications and developers. Judged by members of the media and other industry experts, the 2004 Handango Champion Awards were presented in a ceremony sponsored by Sony Ericsson, Nokia, palmOne and Microsoft.
Unbound Medicine’s Davis’s Drug Guide with Auto-Updates won the award for Best Medical Application for the Pocket PC. This comprehensive and up-to-date reference, published by F.A. Davis Company, provides need-to-know information on thousands of brand-name and generic drugs. Via Unbound Medicine’s award-winning PDA platform, Davis’s Drug Guide stays up to date simply by synchronizing the handheld. There is no need to download large files and re-install the entire application with every update. Instead, new medications are downloaded to the handheld automatically the moment they become available.
"We are proud to recognize Unbound Medicine for their outstanding achievements in the medical software field," said Clint Patterson, vice president of marketing of Handango. “With the help of our elite panel of judges, we are able to acknowledge Unbound Medicine for their exceptional software, which has made the lives of Handango’s customers more productive.”
"We are delighted to be recognized by Handango and the expert panel for our quality handheld offerings" said Bill Detmer, MD, president of Unbound Medicine. "Together with our publishing partners, we strive to provide the highest quality, need-to-know information to health professionals on the go."
In addition to winning the Champion Award in the Medical Pocket PC category, Unbound Medicine was also nominated for two Palm OS applications – 5-Minute Clinical Consult and Harrison’s Manual of Medicine.
