Skyscape(R), the worldwide leading service for trusted medical information by specialty for mobile devices announced today that it is the exclusive mobile service provider of the popular Antibiotic (ABX) and HIV Guides.
Developed by the Johns Hopkins POC-IT (Point of Care Information Technology) Center, the Guides are electronic evidence-based, easily navigated clinical decision support tools to help health care professionals raise the standards of care and improve patient safety. The agreement enables Johns Hopkins to extend the reach of its highly regarded specialty-based medical content into Skyscape's rapidly expanding network of mobile professionals using wireless devices and smart phones to access information.
The ABX Guide was recently named a Top 10 medical software application by Medical Economics.
"With this release, the best gets even better," commented Istvan Krisko, M.D., Founder and President of Palm Beach Infectious Disease Institute and Clinical Associate Professor, Department of Medicine, University of Miami School of Medicine. "The Johns Hopkins ABX Guide and HIV Guide are the gold standards in the field of infectious diseases. Having access to these in a mobile format further enhances the impact these resources can have on quality patient care. I recommend these Skyscape products to specialists and primary care physicians alike."
The ABX Guide, edited by John G. Bartlett, M.D. has been used by more than 400,000 clinicians since its release. The HIV Guide, edited by Joel E. Gallant, M.D. has also enjoyed widespread adoption and growth. As clinicians rely more and more on mobile resources at the point of care, Skyscape's deployment of these preeminent resources has been very well received by the medical community.
"I'm thrilled about the ABX Guide and HIV Guide powered by Skyscape," stated Frederick Lee, M.D., Ph.D., an internist and infectious disease specialist who trained and practiced at the Brigham and Women's Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital, and is now with Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates.
"Skyscape offers the highest-quality resources in the industry and plays an integral role in my practice. With authoritative information from Bartlett and Gallant, the preeminent experts in infectious diseases, Skyscape has provided me with an unmatched resource for diagnosing and treating patients at the point of care."
All Johns Hopkins resources offered by Skyscape are fully integrated into the overall Skyscape portfolio using Skyscape's patented SmartLink(TM) and Knowtify(TM) technologies. This enables clinicians to tailor their experience from the most trusted medical information, delivered in an intuitive manner that supports natural thought flow for diagnosis and treatment. Skyscape supports the broadest array of mobile and wireless devices in the industry, including Palm, Pocket PC, BlackBerry, iPhone and Nokia smart phones.
As part of the agreement, Skyscape has also integrated Johns Hopkins-accredited POC-IT Center Continuing Medical Education programs through its CME STAT. CME STAT, combined with MedAlert(TM), streamlines the continuing education process for clinicians and is available as a part of Skyscape STAT(TM), providing up-to-the-minute and around the clock, on-demand delivery of any resource, anywhere and on any platform. Skyscape and the POC-IT Center successfully launched their first mobile CME activity in association with the American College of Rheumatology, at the recently-held 71st Annual American College of Rheumatology Meeting in Boston.
"Skyscape is proud to have been selected by the Johns Hopkins POC-IT Center," said Sandeep Shah, president and CEO of Skyscape. "We have a strong track record of offering content from the most reliable, trusted sources, and we are confident that these two resources will resonate with our audience - marrying their leading content with our established platform for mobile medical information."
