MARLBOROUGH, MA (December 16, 2011) – Physicians Interactive announced today that its Skyscape mobile platform won highest honors in the tenth annual Mobile Star Awards™. The awards program, sponsored by Mobile Village, recognizes excellence in a variety of technology-related categories, including enterprise software, mobile applications and wireless network technology. Skyscape has now won eight Mobile Star Awards since 2005.

Skyscape won in the category of Enterprise Software: Healthcare Reference for its free Skyscape Medical Resources app, available for iPhone, iPad, Android and BlackBerry. The app provides more than 1 million physicians, nurses and other healthcare professionals (HCPs) worldwide with access to essential clinical decision support at the point of care.

The Skyscape Medical Resources app is designed specifically for use by physicians, nurses, EMTs, pharmacists and other HCPs, as well as for students training to join these professions. The free app comes with 3 free medical resources: Outlines in Clinical Medicine, providing information on more than 800 medical topics; Archimedes Medical Calculator, which allows clinicians to perform over 150 types of medical calculations; and RxDrugs, which includes more than 1,600 drug monographs, an interaction checker, pill images and formulary information on more than 5,000 health plans in the US. Resources available for use with the app include references and tools that HCPs use in their everyday practice such as 5 Minute Clinical Consult, mobilePDR®, Davis’s Drug Guide for Nurses, Taber’s Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary, The Harriet Lane Handbook, and over 600 more. When an HCP adds a resource to the Skyscape app, it arrives fully indexed and cross-referenced with every other title in the app, allowing HCPs to move seamlessly between texts and resources.
