Skyscape (Marlborough, MA, U.S.), a medical information service for mobile devices, made available a decision support suite for Apple Computer’s iPhone. It allows medical professionals to access drug, clinical, lab, and evidence-based medical information and medical alerts streamed to their phone. The iPhone’s integration of phone and Internet capabilities makes it an ideal platform to deliver the information when and where it is needed by healthcare practitioners. The multimedia capabilities of the phone enable delivery of medical information in the form of photographs, pictures, flowcharts, graphs and tables, and even sound and video. Such medical resources enable healthcare practitioners to improve the quality of care, reduce costs, increase efficiencies, and reduce errors.
