April 26, 2007 — Skyscape, a provider of trusted medical information by specialty for mobile devices, has announced its launch of MedStream 360, to deliver medical information by specialty to physicians' mobile devices.
The new MedStream 360 is a critical component of the Skyscape STAT service that seamlessly integrates dynamic up-to-the-minute content with its portfolio of over 450 trusted resources.
MedStream 360 supports a growing set of information channels, broadening the coverage of medical information that professionals can access seamlessly through Skyscape's patented context sensitive SmartLink and Knowtify technologies. With the addition of the American College of Physicians Journal Club, the service adds a critical component of evidence-based medical information.
Journal Club presents valued-added abstracts and commentaries on articles selected from over 100 of the most respected medical journals including the New England Journal of Medicine, Journal of the American Medical Association, the Lancet, and the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. The articles chosen are those requiring immediate attention from physicians looking to stay current on the most important advances in internal medicine. Journal Club joins a prestigious selection of medical channels in the MedStream 360 portfolio including InfoPOEMs, the Medical Letter on Drugs and Therapeutics, MedWatch and Drug News Weekly.
"Doctors trust ACP publications to stay up-to-date with the best of evidence-based medical literature," said Dr. Eugene Bailey, M.D., Associate Professor, Department of Family Medicine, SUNY Upstate Medical University. "I depend on Skyscape's offering of ACP's Physician's Information and Education Resource (PIER), and am pleased that I can now add Journal Club to my mobile library as well. By delivering the necessary information to physicians at the point of care, MedStream 360 makes the process of incorporating evidence-based medicine into treatment strategies almost effortless."
MedStream 360, in conjunction with Skyscape's MedAlert and MedLine 360, highlights the Skyscape STAT philosophy to provide up-to-the-minute and around the clock, on-demand delivery of any resource, anywhere, for any platform, 24/7.
