Unbound Medicine Launches Medicine Central™
Comprehensive Medical Reference Suite for PDA, Web and Wireless
Charlottesville, VA, June 1, 2005 — Today, Unbound Medicine, a leader in information for healthcare providers, announced the release of Medicine Central™. Designed especially for internists, primary care providers and trainees, Unbound’s new resource combines premier reference content with powerful literature management tools—all easily accessible using a personal digital assistant (PDA), a wireless device, or the Web.
With Medicine Central, clinicians configure their own comprehensive suite of disease, drug, and diagnostic test information by first selecting a core medical text—5-Minute Clinical Consult, Harrison’s Manual of Medicine, or CURRENT CONSULT Medicine. Other highly regarded titles from McGraw-Hill, Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, and F.A. Davis complete the package. Medicine Central enhances these premier titles through Unbound’s award-winning platform, which includes personalized journal tracking and literature searching.
"Regardless of physical location, nomadic clinicians can get quick answers to clinical questions or keep up with the literature," said William Detmer, MD, president and CEO of Unbound Medicine. "Users have the freedom to select their favorite medical reference and get the information they need on both the Web and their handheld device of choice."
Medicine Central joins Unbound’s Anesthesia Central™ as part of a new product series that provides all-in-one mobile solutions for individual practitioners in targeted specialties. Like the related institutional product, uCentral™, it combines the powerful and user-friendly features of the Unbound platform with respected clinical content.
