Today Unbound Medicine put out a press releases announcing that their many medical-based mobile apps are now available for Windows Phone 7. The most well-known of their applications to make its way to WP7 is Relief Central, a free mobile and web-based resource for disaster relief workers. It was recently named winner of the Windows Phone Federal Apps contest. Other available titles include Nursing Central, 5-minute Clinical Consult, McGraw-Hill’s Diagnosaurus, Taber’s Medical Dictionary, and three versions of The Merck Manual.
When asked about Microsoft's new mobile platform, Philip Peterson, chief technology officer of Unbound Medicine, had this to say:
"Windows Phone has made a significant contribution to the mobile platform landscape with a feature-rich and easy-to-use interface...Unbound Medicine recognizes that the Windows Phone platform is a game-changer. We will continue to develop applications as new platforms become available in order to provide our users with what they need—up-to-date information."
While these tools are unlikely to perform medical miracles when death is on the line, they will aid medical professionals and students in everyday situations, and demonstrate the wide breadth that the WP7 platform spans. It is unclear as to whether or not Congress will attempt to repeal the apps in the near future (zing).
