Apr 05, 2004 Skyscape Launches Constellation – Raising the Bar for Medical References on PDAs HUDSON, Mass. –(Business Wire)– April 5, 2004 Mobile Medical Reference Leader Unveils First and Only Complete, Fully-Integrated Suite for Specific Medical Specialties

Skyscape(R), Inc. (, the leading provider of enterprise-wide mobile medical and nursing solutions, today announced its new line of Constellation(TM) suites–the first and only fully integrated, all-in-one handheld solution customized for individual medical specialties and practitioners. Unlike other handheld references, Skyscape Constellation suites are comprised of top references and clinical decision making tools–all integrated utilizing Skyscape’s patented smARTlink(TM) functionality, which allows practitioners to cross-link between any of the over 180 references powered by Skyscape. No other product comes close to the level of integration, breadth and depth of Skyscape’s Constellation suites.

The first five Constellation suites are for Anesthesiology, Cardiology, Emergency Medicine, Nursing and Pediatrics. Skyscape will introduce Constellation suites for additional specialties later this year. “While other companies may talk about providing full integration, Skyscape delivers it with all of our titles,” said Sandeep Shah, President and CEO, for Skyscape. “Constellation is another important milestone in how Skyscape is extending its domination of the PDA medical reference market, by leveraging the power of our patented smARTlink technology. Our goal is to provide a complete, integrated solution that contains the most popular, proven references and decision-making tools for individual specialties.” Constellation’s Power In Action–Seamless Integration and Comprehensive Information Constellation’s decision-making and reference tools include clinical references, drug guides, drug interaction analyzers, medical calculators, ICD-9 coding tools and much more. For the first time, trusted medical references from a variety of leading publishers are available as a single, integrated suite. Each Constellation suite includes a unified interface which enables a medical professional to seamlessly access and navigate the suite of products with one touch of a stylus on their handheld device, and without having to learn multiple products. “I have tried several companies’ software, but none have the breadth, depth and efficiency of Skyscape’s Constellation suite. I was looking for an all-in-one solution, and with Constellation, I found it. Now I can do quick literature searches, develop differentials, cost-effectively run tests, and check drug interactions,” said Dr. Ira Halperin, Internist for OSF, Clinical Assistant Professor for University of Illinois at Chicago. All of Skyscape’s Constellation suites come with the most popular references and decision-making tools for each specialty or practitioner and can be further customized by the user. In addition to the core content for a particular specialty, each Constellation suite has a collection of add-on references that are available at a discount when purchased with the Constellation suite. “Integrated medical references and decision-making tools are key,” said Dr. Steven Blumberg, Board Certified ObGyn, Cape Cod Hospital. “During a recent flight when a passenger suddenly became ill, I was able to confirm that his symptoms were secondary to an overdose of his cardiac medications through the information supplied in Drug Guide for Physicians and then I was able to review and confirm the proper care through the information found in the 5-Minute Emergency Medicine Consult.” The initial Constellation suites are: — Anesthesiology Constellation Suite– An integrated suite of the top references and decision-making tools for anesthesiologists. — Cardiology Constellation Suite– Cardiologists and other cardiology specialists in need of gold-standard references and decision-making tools at the point-of-care can select this suite of titles. — Emergency Medicine Constellation Suite–Emergency medical practitioners and other personnel who deal with emergency situations can obtain the integrated suite of the best-selling references and decision-making tools for their field. — Nursing Constellation Suite–This is a comprehensive collection of the top titles and decision-making tools for registered nurses and nurse practitioners. — Pediatric Constellation Suite–Pediatricians and other pediatric specialists who select this suite will receive the most popular pediatric references and decision-making tools.
