Jan 20, 2011, 09:00 ET from McGraw-Hill Professional

NEW YORK, Jan. 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Last year, over 50% of physicians used a smartphone or PDA device on a frequent basis for some aspect of healthcare delivery. In 2004, barely a quarter of physicians used mobile devices in their day-to-day workflow.

McGraw-Hill has responded to this transformational growth by launching mobile versions of two of its premier online medical products, AccessMedicine®  and AccessPharmacy™  for physicians, faculty, medical students, pharmacists, and all health professionals.  The mobile versions feature essential portions of the two sites' world-renowned content optimized for the unique size and speed constraints of mobile browsers.

"We built mobile-enabled views of AccessMedicine and AccessPharmacy to provide healthcare professionals with high-quality viewing capability and on-the-go access to must-have information when and where they need it," says Philip Ruppel, president of McGraw-Hill Professional.  "We are committed to delivering our content in multiple formats to best meet the evolving needs of our customers. But clearly, mobile delivery is the way of the future."

AccessMedicine provides users with full-text online access to more than 60 texts from thought leaders, updated content, thousands of images, Custom Curriculum, Q&A, a comprehensive search platform, and the ability to download content to a mobile device.  The following AccessMedicine content is available and optimized for mobile view:

  • Harrison's Online
  • CURRENT Medical Diagnosis and Treatment 2011
  • Picture Galleries from Fitzpatrick's Color Atlas and Synopsis of Clinical Dermatology, 6e
  • Clinician's Pocket Reference: The Scut Monkey, 11e

Covering the full scope of pharmacy education, AccessPharmacy delivers the field's most trusted and sought-after texts in a single, highly affordable collection that includes interactive decision-making tools and care plans.  AccessPharmacy content available on the mobile view now includes:

  • Pharmacotherapy: A Pathophysiologic Approach
