Skyscape's CardioSource Mobile App Gets Excellent Response

Skyscape, Inc., a subsidiary of Physicians Interactive Holdings and leading provider of mobile apps for healthcare professionals, recently announced in a press release that its CardioSource Mobile App, which was in partnership with American College of Cardiology (ACC), has received tremendous response since its April 2 launch.

The officials from Skyscape claim that the app has been downloaded more than 14,000 times by healthcare professionals to streamline the decision-making process and improves patient care.

The CardioSource Mobile App enables the medical professionals to make smarter decisions in real-time by accessing a fully indexed set of all ACC/American Heart Association guideline recommendations combined with the latest evidence-based medicine content from CardioSource is a powerful tool that can potentially help ease the burden of this shortage by providing evidence-based, mobile medical information at the point of care.

"With CardioSource, I'm confident that the care I provide patients with is consistently in line with the latest guidelines and medical studies," said Dr. Jordan Safirstein, FACC, FSCAI; Interventional Cardiologist, in a statement. "Guidelines are invaluable if you're in the office, rounding on inpatients or teaching residents and fellows. To have evidence-based medicine available in a convenient and navigable format is a boon to doctors and patients alike. It fosters a higher quality of medical management consistent with ACC guidelines. In our field, it's imperative to stay current. To have a resource like Journal Scan, right on your smartphone, provides busy cardiologists with the opportunity to read a journal article or two when we do have a free moment."

"The fact that CardioSource was downloaded by so many healthcare professionals specializing in cardiology is indicative of the need for intuitive mobile healthcare apps that cater to specific specialties," said Sanjay Pingle, president of Physicians Interactive Holdings. "Our hope is that mobile apps like CardioSource will allow time-strapped healthcare professionals to maintain a level of personalized, reliable patient care."
