Date:10/20/2010

MARLBORO, Mass., Oct. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Skyscape, a global leader in clinical decision support for mobile devices and wholly owned subsidiary of Physicians Interactive Holdings, announced today that it has obtained a non-exclusive license to provide mobile service of the Johns Hopkins POC-IT Diabetes Guide to health care professionals. Skyscape currently releases mobile versions of the POC-IT Antibiotic (ABX) and HIV Guides.

Developed by the Johns Hopkins POC-IT Center (point-of-care / Information Technology), the Diabetes Guide is an evidence-based and rigorous peer-reviewed  electronic clinical decision support tool that is easily searched and quickly navigated to help health care professionals save time, reduce errors and be more confident in diagnosis and treatment decisions at the point of care. The mobile version of the Diabetes Guide also includes regular content updates that are transferred automatically to the user's mobile device or via easy download and synching.

The Diabetes Guide contains more than 150 comprehensive information modules that cover both type 1 and type 2 diabetes, including diagnosis, treatment and patient education.  It was developed at Johns Hopkins under the editorial leadership of Christopher D. Saudek, MD (editor-in-chief and past president of the American Diabetes Association), Rita Rastogi Kalyani, MD, MHS (managing editor) and Fredrick L. Brancati, MD, MHS (editorial advisor).  The Diabetes Guide was produced through a grant from the Trinidad and Tobago Health Sciences Initiative, in collaboration with Johns Hopkins Medicine International.

All Johns Hopkins resources offered by Skyscape are fully integrated into the overall Skyscape portfolio using Skyscape's patented SmartLink™ and Knowtify™ technologies.  This enables clinicians to tailor their experience from the most trusted medical information, delivered in an intuitive manner that supports natural thought flow for diagnosis and treatment.  Skyscape supports the broadest array of mobile and wireless devices in the industry, including iPhone, Droid, Palm, Pocket PC, BlackBerry and Nokia smart phones.  

"We are pleased to release this important medical resource for the Johns Hopkins POC-IT Center," said Sandeep Shah, CEO and founder of Skyscape. "This new offering clearly demonstrates Skyscape's commitment to offer the most trusted medical information resources for point-of-care use via mobile device.  Johns Hopkins POC-IT Guides are written by clinicians for clinicians - making this a perfect fit for physicians, residents and nurses on the go."

The Johns Hopkins POC-IT Diabetes Guide is available through Skyscape for $24.95 through December 31, 2010. Further information about subscription rates can be found on the Skyscape website (www.skyscape.com) by searching for "JH Diabetes Guide."
