Date:12/3/2008

Lexi-Comp expands their ON-HAND™ product offering, announcing the availability of their trusted point-of-care information on the iPhone and iPod touch.

Hudson, OH (PRWEB) December 3, 2008 -- Lexi-Comp, Inc., a provider of clinical information for healthcare professionals, has released applications for the iPhone and the iPod touch. This latest innovation enhances Lexi-Comp's existing handheld platform, which currently offers compatibility with Palm™ and Pocket PC devices, as well as smartphones, including BlackBerry® and Windows Mobile®. Individual databases and package options from the Lexi-Comp ON-HAND software library are now available for purchase through the Apple® iTunes® Store by visiting www.lexi.com/individuals/iphone.



Customer feedback has shown that users appreciate the intuitive interface and superior formatting of this new application, as well as the touch-screen features, and the expansion and rotation functionality. The ability to purchase and easily download the software directly from iTunes also holds strong appeal. Dr. Faris Salem, founder of pda4peds.com, PDA software reviewer, and power-user of PDA clinical applications comments, "I think Lexi-Comp products on the iPhone will please iPhone users. The user-friendly interface, the seamless flow of pages, and the ease of finding answers quickly makes for an incredible application for use at the bedside."

Steven Kerscher, Lexi-Comp's President and COO, says, "Customers have been asking for the availability of our tables, charts, appendices, and images, presented exactly as they are seen in our handbooks and Internet platforms; this feature is now available with the iPhone and iPod touch application." Kerscher adds, "These devices truly are ideal for delivering our content. They showcase the ease of use, linking capabilities, and concise structure of our databases that so many clinicians worldwide rely on in their daily workflow to save time and provide world-class patient care."    

Lexi-Comp ON-HAND for the iPhone features Lexi-Drugs®, the most comprehensive pharmacology database available on this platform. Users can create and store personalized user notes within each Lexi-Drugs monograph and can quickly determine drug/herb/food interactions using Lexi-Interact™. Seamless linking to other purchased Lexi-Comp databases makes finding information fast and efficient. Clinicians can also link to FDA warnings, PubMed, and additional resources via the Internet. Dental professionals will be able to utilize this latest mobile technology to access the same photo-rich resources presented in Lexi-Comp's highly regarded printed dental manuals. Trusted medical resources such as Harrison's Practice, The 5-Minute Clinical Consultant, and Stedman's Medical Dictionary for the Health Professions and Nursing are also available.

Enhancements scheduled for early 2009 release include wireless updating and the addition of calculations, drug identification, and IV compatibility tools.
