Date:7/8/2010

Free, Easy-Access Tool for Busy Clinicians Delivers Breaking Medical News, 24/7, to Android-Powered Smartphones.

Little Falls, NJ (PRWEB) July 8, 2010 — MedPage Today (www.medpagetoday.com) has announced the launch of an Android-compatible version of its popular MedPage Today Mobile® application.

This free app provides immediate access to MedPage Today’s 24/7 breaking medical news and other resources for clinicians who use Android-powered phones such as the DROID Incredible by HTC, Samsung Galaxy, and Motorola DROID, creating a convenient point-of-care tool for monitoring and responding to the dynamic and changing medical treatment landscape.

Clinicians rely on MedPage Today as a workflow tool throughout the practice day to help them respond to the questions their patients ask about breaking news they are receiving via the consumer media. The MedPage Today articles, conference reports, and scientific developments delivered through the Android app provide the professional-level information clinicians need to analyze the breaking news and facilitate clear and comprehensive patient direction—at the point of care. This daily engagement puts clinicians in a proactive position of being knowledgeable at the moment the information is available, enabling them to alert affected patients in their practice and address their concerns.

“The MedPage Today Mobile app for Android-powered smartphones is the latest entry in our slate of mobile and interactive offerings, all of which expand the usability of the regular MedPage Today service exponentially,” said Robert Stern, president and CEO. “Busy clinicians now have another way to access breaking medical news, conference reports, continuing medical education (CME/CE) activities, and all of the resources MedPage Today offers, quickly and easily, any time, anywhere.”

Through MedPage Today’s partnership with the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, all news articles are peer reviewed by a team of physicians under the direction of the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine to ensure the quality and accuracy of the information being reported. In addition, physicians, nurses, pharmacists, physician assistants, and allied health professionals can earn free CME/CE credit for reading articles on MedPage Today.

The MedPage Today Mobile app for Android-powered smartphones can be downloaded for free at the Android Marketplace (http://androidapplications.com/82243-medpage-today-mobile) or at www.medpagetoday.com. The app will be updated as needed to respond to clinicians’ daily practice demands at the point of care.

MedPage Today Mobile apps are also available for iPhone/iPod touch and BlackBerry devices.
