Charlottesville, VA July 13 , 2004 -- Unbound Medicine, a leading provider of knowledge management solutions for the healthcare industry, announced today the launch of Unbound Surgery, a pioneering digital resource that combines evidence-based clinical content with leading-edge technology.
Unbound Surgery -- the first all-digital resource of its kind -- offers focused yet detailed answers to surgical questions encountered in clinical practice. Available for Palm OS and Pocket PC handheld devices and tightly integrated with a multimedia Web version, Unbound Surgery helps practitioners and trainees resolve surgical dilemmas wherever they arise.
Duke University Professor and Vice Chairman of Surgery Theodore Pappas, MD leads the Unbound Surgery editorial team of more than 100 experts from top surgery departments across the United States. The result is a regularly updated resource comprised of nearly 400 topics with more than 790 videos, graphics, and supporting tables.
“Clinicians today have little time to answer pressing questions,” says William Detmer, MD, CEO of Unbound Medicine. “Now with Unbound Surgery, the latest evidence-based answers are just a click away."
In addition to outstanding surgery content and handheld-Web delivery, Unbound Surgery includes a powerful literature management service. Users can track their favorite journals both on the handheld and Web and manage MEDLINE searches and saved articles in a personal Web archive.
“Unbound Surgery represents a new approach to managing surgical information through the application of state-of-the-art information technology," says Robert W. Anderson, MD, the David C. Sabiston, Jr. Professor and Former Chairman of Surgery at Duke University Medical Center. "I believe it sets a new standard."
