MedWatch -- a FREE MedStream channel for your mobile device, provides information from the FDA Safety Information and Adverse Event Reporting Program. It serves both healthcare professionals and the medical product-using public. MedWatch provides important and timely clinical information about safety issues involving medical products, including prescription and over-the-counter drugs, biologics, medical and radiation-emitting devices, and special nutritional products (e.g., medical foods, dietary supplements and infant formulas).
Medical product safety alerts, recalls, withdrawals, and important labeling changes that may affect the health of all Americans are quickly disseminated to the handhelds of the medical community via MedStream.
MedWatch safety alerts delivered to your PDA include:
- Clinically important medical product safety alerts for use at the point of care
- Concise, timely information about the drugs and devices you use, prescribe, or dispense every day, directly from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration
- A summary of the safety alert. When you need to know more, a web address directs you to more detailed information
MedStream, Skyscape's FREE intelligent mobile offering, provides a quantum improvement in the way medical practitioners work, integrating dynamic and near-time content with gold-standard medical references to enable practitioners to operate at the highest levels of expertise. MedWatch is a free channel that's included with every download of MedStream. Additional free channels include: CDC Spotlights
, Preventing Chronic Disease
MedStream channels are fundamentally different from any other mobile channel offering in the marketplace. Unlike other channel offerings which simply deliver information onto the handheld, dynamic information flowing into MedStream channels automatically smARTlinks with other channel information and with traditional "powered by Skyscape" reference content on the handheld. For example, if a physician in the course of treating a patient were to consider warfarin as potential treatment and then smARTlinks, he would be automatically informed about the all of the latest information and news flashes about warfarin that have flowed into the MedStream channels.
Information in MedWatch is easily and dynamically integrated via smARTlink™ with other Skyscape-powered channels and references and is updated whenever users synchronize their PDAs, providing medical professionals with the most current source of clinical and drug information in context at the point-of-care. Carry it with you wherever you go!
