Apple iPhone medical applications from Unbound Medicine


While the iPhone does not permit loading applications the way Symbian and Windows Mobile do, you can use the cellular or WiFi connection to view books online. While not as convenient as non-connected access, it also means that the references should be updated centrally as with any ASP system. Let us know how what you think. SV

Unbound Medicine offers a wide choice of medical products for the iPhone, placing emphasis on well known, regularly updated references. Among the popular titles available are Harrison’s Manual of Medicine and Pocket Guide to Diagnostic Tests from McGraw-Hill, 5-Minute Clinical Consult from Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Red Book® from the American Academy of Pediatrics, and Davis’s Drug Guide and Taber’s Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary from F.A. Davis. Unbound MEDLINE rounds out the offering, allowing clinicians to track favorite medical journals and quickly search more than 17 million journal articles.

Unbound Medicine’s customized iPhone interface takes full advantage of the built-in Safari™ web browser to give health professionals quick answers over cellular and WiFi networks. Users navigate intuitively

by tapping on index terms or by entering searches into clinician-friendly forms. Cross-links and lists of related content instantly take a clinician from a disease management discussion to a drug monograph for the correct dose, possible interactions, and adverse effects of a recommended medication.

while the web based applications are nice and continously updated and save room on the iPhone.it is entirely to slow for fast paced clinical use. That is when available and not blocked by large institutional architechture and bunkered radiology suites. Its really not good and should be stopped from progressing down this laggy useless road
