Elsevier launches mobile medical service
17 November 2009 00:00 in Marketing Services
Elsevier has unveiled a new service to provide medical professionals with clinical information on mobile devices.
Designed for use with the iPhone, BlackBerry and other smartphone handsets, MD Consult Mobile gives access to an extensive library of medical content at the push of a button.
Users can browse through a list of medical topics and find the information they require by searching the collection of books, journal articles and clinical guidelines.
Randy Charles, managing director for global clinical reference at Elsevier, said that MD Consult Mobile will provide physicians with "comprehensive access to current information as close to the point of patient care as possible".
He added: "Being able to consult this evidence-based clinical content from a mobile device will help our users find efficient clinical answers and make better patient treatment decisions."
The mobile resource is available at no extra charge for subscribers to Elsevier's existing MD Consult service.
Last month, Elsevier published Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, a new guide to contemporary cosmetic surgery procedures.
