Unbound Medicine in partnership with Merck & Co. has introduced a new version of MerckMedicus, which provides medical information to physicians and other healthcare professionals. This can be accessed by any wireless mobile device with a web browser.
“As physicians are constantly on the go during the average day, the new wireless MerckMedicus will help them find answers when questions arise and stay abreast of the latest advances in medicine,” said William Detmer, MD, president and CEO of Unbound Medicine.
MerckMedicus gives doctors free access to The Merck Manual of Diagnosis and Therapy, MEDLINE Journal abstracts, Pocket Guide to Diagnostic Tests, and Reuters Medical News. The Personal Search Assistant allows clinicians to query more than 11 million medical articles in the MEDLINE database from their handheld or other wireless device
There are no access fees or advertising content when using MerckMedicus.
The wireless option is compatible with cellular phones with web-browsing capabilities, smartphones, and other wireless devices that use Pocket PC, BlackBerry, or Palm OS operating systems.
It follows the launch of Mobile MerckMedicus, which was designed for non-wireless handhelds and introduced by Unbound Medicine and Merck in 2004.
