New York-based WebMD Health Corp. has rolled-out Medscape Mobile, a free medical application for physicians. According to the company, the product provides physicians with Medscape’s medical information in a mobile format that can be accessed on demand on the iPhone and iPod touch, and later this year, on the BlackBerry.
Medscape Mobile includes drug information, clinical reference tools, medical news and continuing medical education (CME) information, the company says. The product also includes CME activities organized by specialty and is designed for use on a mobile device.
The company says features include: a drug database of over 6,000 generic and brand name drugs, plus hundreds of herbals, supplements and antidotes, as well as a drug interaction checker that shows interactions.
To download Medscape for iPhone and iPod touch, search for ‘Medscape’ in the Apple iTunes App Store or look under ‘free apps’ in the Medical category. An interactive demo is available online.
