Unbound Medicine, Inc., a Charlottesville, VA company, has released The Merck Manual for mobile devices in partnership with Merck & Co.
From the company’s statement:
Unlike a print book, The Merck Manual for Mobile Devices will be continuously updated to keep clinicians informed of the latest developments that impact practice. The unique Unbound™ Platform will deliver bi-monthly updates automatically to subscribers when they synchronize their handheld devices.
“We have always seen The Merck Manual as a compact and easy-to-use reference for physicians, medical students, physicians’ assistants, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals”, said Robert S. Porter, MD, Editor of The Merck Manual. “By partnering with Unbound Medicine, we are able to make the manual more accessible than ever. We especially like the fact that the Unbound Platform optimizes presentation of the content so that clinicians have the option of using a PDA or a wireless device like a Treo™, Smartphone, or BlackBerry™.”
