Charlottesville, VA, August 6, 2007—Today, Unbound Medicine, a leader in knowledge management solutions and mobile information resources for healthcare, and Oxford University Press, the world’s largest university press dedicated to excellence, tradition, and innovation, announced their partnership with the release of the new 7th edition of the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine on the Unbound™ Platform. Now busy medical students and residents can consult the handbook at the point of need using a personal digital assistant (PDA) or the Internet via computer or wireless device.
The Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine evolved from the notes of two young doctors in training who found that they learned more working with senior physicians in a clinical setting than they did from classroom lectures. Since publication of the first edition in 1985, this fact-packed book has become the world’s most popular medical pocket reference, selling over a million copies.
“We are excited that new technologies allow us to make this valuable content more readily available than ever before,” said Evan Schnittman, Vice President Business Development at Oxford University Press. “With Unbound’s unique PDA, Web and wireless formulation, our customers can review disease information and check treatment options on their choice of PDA or wireless device such as smartphone, iPhone™, or BlackBerry™.”
“It is a pleasure to partner with a forward-thinking publisher like Oxford University Press,” added Bill Detmer, MD, President and CEO of Unbound Medicine. “Generations of students and medical trainees have relied on the Oxford Handbook for a unique combination of evidence-based patient care guidelines and experience-based clinical wisdom. Oxford’s commitment to supporting the doctors of the future is evident in the way they are developing and maintaining digital content.”
Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine is supported on Palm, Pocket PC, and all Windows Mobile platforms. Wireless implementation is certified for iPhone, Palm OS 5 or later with Palm Browser v. 3.0 or higher, Windows Mobile OS with Internet explorer browser, and BlackBerry with the latest BlackBerry browser.
