Charlottesville, Va. and Durham, N.C. (October 3, 2002) – Unbound Medicine, a leader in the development of next-generation mobile knowledge management systems, today announced a partnership with MDeverywhere. By integrating CogniQ™, Unbound Medicine’s mobile knowledge management platform, with MDeverywhere’s leading point of care solutions, healthcare providers now have the option to add A to Z Drug Facts, Drug Interaction Facts Module and MEDLINE Journals to their MDeverywhere service. Valuable evidence-based answers from the latest medical literature, drug-drug and drug-food interactions, and detailed drug descriptions will be readily accessible on the provider’s Palm OS or Pocket PC device at the point of need.
"The efficacy of our existing integrated encounter and dictation capture is excellent, and we believe the addition of medication and research information will prove to be invaluable for providers making critical decisions about patient care," says Howard Jewell, MDeverywhere president and CEO. "Our solution is based on the premise of efficiently providing answers and information when they are needed, thereby markedly reducing errors, improving compliance and providing financial value."
"Healthcare providers are faced with the ultimate challenge: learn, retain and act on an immense amount of constantly changing information," says William Detmer, MD, Unbound Medicine president and CEO. "By combining CogniQ with MDeverywhere’s suite of products, we further our mission to provide clinicians reliable, up to date, actionable information at the point of care, thereby helping to reduce medical errors and improve patient care."
MDeverywhere offers industry leading point-of-care solutions designed to streamline the business of medicine for physicians. The solution components, EveryCharge® (charge capture), EveryNote SM (voice dictation), EveryOrder SM (order capture) and EveryReference SM (reference tools), build efficiency and productivity into physicians’ workflow, reclaiming dollars previously lost as the result of bulky administrative processes. Seven consecutive return on investment (ROI) studies at major healthcare organizations proved an average 317 percent ROI, gained from recouped lost charges, timely claim submission and reduced rework costs. MDeverywhere interfaces with major practice management systems and is available on Palm OS- and Pocket PC-based handheld devices or desktop workstations.
