Elsevier a publisher of scientific, technical, and medical information products and services announced today that its customers will be able to visualize and review over 300 top medical procedures on their mobile devices with the launch of Procedures Consult Mobile.
"As the leading multimedia, online skills-focused education program, Procedures Consult allows clinicians to learn and review important procedural skills at the most 'teachable moment', furthering their education and training while simultaneously increasing patient safety and reducing adverse medical events," said Dr. Jonathan Teich, Chief Medical Informatics Officer for Elsevier Health Sciences. "The mobile-enabled version further expands the value of Procedures Consult by putting this knowledge right in your pocket, close to you at every point of care."
Procedures Consult Mobile provides web-enabled smartphones with access to expert videos, "quick review" text and illustrations, checklists and universal protocol content for every procedure - all presented within a user interface optimized for smartphone web browsers. The mobile site allows clinicians who may not have studied or conducted a procedure for a period of time the ability to prepare for, perform and follow-up on the most common procedures required in today's hospital setting.
Clinicians can view modules in the following seven areas: anesthesia, emergency medicine, family medicine, general surgery, internal medicine, orthopaedics and a collection specifically geared to the needs of medical students.
Procedures Consult Mobile is included as part of the current Procedures Consult institutional subscription package at no additional charge, as well as upcoming individual subscription offerings beginning in July 2010.
