Skyscape delivers essential, current medical resources
The Skyscape Medical Library App has been providing more than a million physicians, nurses, students and other healthcare professionals (HCPs) worldwide with access to essential clinical decision support tools in the classroom, sim lab or at the point of care for over 20 years. Skyscape Medical Library is now part of the Skyscape Galaxy (pictured), which includes the following apps for medical and nursing students and professionals: SkillsHub, Snap Word, FlashDrive and nTrack.
Skyscape Medical Library essential tools
Through it’s a free medical app, Skyscape Medical Library offers users four valuable tools including clinical references, a drug guide, a medical calculator and news notifications. The Skyscape Clinical Consult resource shares information on 850+ diseases and symptom-related topics, while Skyscape Rx supplies information on thousands of brand name and generic drugs along with an interaction checker and pill images. The medical calculator offers 200+ tools that are organized by specialty.
The healthcare industry survives on new data for conditions, medical treatments, technology and more, meaning HCPS must have access to the most up-to-date content. As such, Skyscape developed MedBeats™ notifications, which deliver breaking clinical news, drug alerts and other emerging data directly to the user’s device.
Helping HCPs to better help others
All of Skyscape’s apps are developed with the HCP in mind, ensuring the majority of the resources HCPs use in school, during training and on the job are available within the app in a convenient mobile format. Skyscape offers more than 400 premium clinical resources and other tools that were created in partnership with trusted medical publishers such as Elsevier, FA Davis, McGraw Hill, Wolters Kluwer Health and Wiley. HCPs can customize their apps with the resources they need, based on their profession and specialty. Clinicians and students spend less time finding the right resources and spend more time caring for their patients.
Skyscape goes beyond providing just the resources; it helps HCPs do their jobs better. Instead of combing through multiple websites or apps; using smartsearch Skyscape allows clinicians to search its entire resource library at once. With Skyscape’s SmartLink, users can cross-reference multiple Skyscape resources so when HCPS are checking clinical information during a patient visit, they can link to relevant treatment guidelines, review drug information and more without disrupting their workflow.
By accessing its clinical resources, integrated calculators, algorithms, medical journals and other tools, HCPs can efficiently be guided through diagnosis, treatment and ongoing management to provide the best possible care to their patients– all thanks to Skyscape’s Medical Library app.
