Technology Update Features New Capabilities for Mobile and Web
Charlottesville, VA, July 13, 2010—Unbound Medicine, a leader in knowledge management solutions for healthcare, today announced enhancements to the Unbound™ Platform highlighted by the addition of a customizable study system, Grasp™.
Grasp is an innovative mobile and web study solution that uses a proven learning method to help learners master unfamiliar concepts or prepare for an exam. With Grasp, students or faculty can build custom cards and decks using content in Unbound Medicine products. Users can then study the decks on mobile devices or the web and elect to share decks with others. Unbound Medicine chose to launch Grasp in its popular product, Nursing Central™, which integrates, disease, drug, and diagnostic test references from F.A. Davis with Unbound functionality. Other platform advances include tools for quick term or drug lookup within a web page and automated, custom alerts deliverable to mobile devices.
“With Grasp I can build cards and decks based on exactly what I need to review and share them with members of my study group,” said Fabriana Margaglio, student, Thomas Jefferson University. “Whether I’m at my computer or using my mobile device, I can review new concepts or study for an exam.”
“Adding study capabilities to the Unbound Platform transforms the way people interact with our products, individually and in groups,” said Bill Detmer, MD, president of Unbound Medicine. “Now, students and faculty can use our applications for test preparation then continue to rely on our software for up-to-date answers to patient care questions during clinical training and as practitioners.”
