Unbound Medicine and Wiley-Blackwell Announce Partnership with Launch of Evidence Central
Charlottesville, VA – December 15, 2009 – Unbound Medicine, a leader in knowledge management solutions for healthcare, today announced the launch of Evidence Central™, an integrated evidence-based solution, with content from its partner, Wiley-Blackwell, the scientific, technical, medical, and scholarly publishing business of John Wiley & Sons, Inc. Evidence Central supports effective medical practice through delivery of the latest research and guidelines to mobile devices and the web.
Evidence Central is designed to answer evidence-based questions and keep clinicians up to date by delivering the latest scientific research and literature on a daily basis. Evidence Central includes up-to-date review abstracts of therapeutic interventions in Cochrane Abstracts, clinical guidelines and supporting summaries in Evidence-Based Medicine Guidelines, daily relevant evidence reviews in EE+ POEMs (Patient-Oriented Evidence that Matters from Essential Evidence Plus), and literature citations, abstracts, and links to full text in MEDLINE Journals. Powered by the Unbound™ Platform, this clinically-useful information is easily accessible on the web or mobile device platforms including iPhone™, iPod touch®, BlackBerry®, Android™, Windows Mobile®, and Palm®.
Clinicians can search Cochrane Abstracts summaries detailing the validity of research findings on a medical topic, then use Cross Links to connect to clinical guidelines and supporting information, including images and videos. Unbound Medicine’s MEDLINE Journals feature connects these entries to journal abstracts and provides alerts for new journal articles as they are published. Daily EE+ POEMs are organized for easy application in practice and are available in an archive for future reference.
“With Evidence Central, our resources are fully integrated with one another, making it easy for clinicians to efficiently identify clinically meaningful research findings and apply them to patient care,” said Shawn Morton, Journals Publishing Director, Medicine, Americas at Wiley-Blackwell. “Unbound Medicine’s advanced mobile technology with download to all the popular mobile platforms and simple over-the-air synchronization ensures availability of the latest information at the point of care or wherever it’s needed.”
“Medicine is moving toward evidence-based practice,” said Bill Detmer, MD, president of Unbound Medicine. “The Cochrane Abstracts, Evidence-Based Medicine Guidelines, and EE+ POEMs are recognized worldwide as expert leaders in the analysis and communication of evidence-based medicine. We are pleased to partner with Wiley-Blackwell to offer resources that can have a powerful impact on the quality of healthcare.”
