Living Medical eTextbook iPhone App from Projects In Knowledge®
Named to Top 20 List of Free Medical Apps

Game-Changing Point-of-Care Clinical Tool Ranked 8th by iMedicalApps


Little Falls, New Jersey—February 2, 2011Projects In Knowledge (www.projectsinknowledge.com), a fully accredited provider of continuing medical education (CME/CE) activities, previously broke new ground with its first-to-market, originally written, game-changing Living Medical eTextbook. Now the iPhone app for this proprietary clinical reference tool has been recognized by iMedicalApps (www.imedicalapps.com) as one of the top 20 free medical iPhone apps for healthcare professionals.


According to the senior editors at iMedicalApps, “Living Medical Textbooks by Projects In Knowledge is an application that for some reason has gotten little to no hype in the App Store. There are actually 5 Living Medical Textbooks, ranging in topics from Diabetes to Multiple Sclerosis. The apps offer CME activities, but what makes them particularly appealing is they are ‘dynamic’ — meaning the chapters are updated when noteworthy new medical data or research is introduced in medicine.”


“We are pleased and honored to have Living Medical eTextbook included in iMedicalApps’ Top 20 list, alongside so many extraordinary apps from other, perhaps more widely known, content developers,” said Patty Peterson, CCMEP, Senior Vice President at Projects In Knowledge. “It is especially satisfying to be recognized by a respected review panel of medical professionals, who can readily determine if an app is truly beneficial to clinicians in daily practice.”


Each Living Medical eTextbook comprises originally researched and developed content, focused on a single specialty area. The text is peer reviewed to ensure scientific integrity and neatly organized for easy navigation and reference. Multiple interactive features serve to clarify relevant issues and bring the content alive. These include embedded hyperlinks to authenticated external resources (videos, podcasts, journal articles, illustrations, and animations), expert commentary that punctuates key points, and engaging faculty interviews. The iPhone app takes this outstanding resource to the next level by putting those features directly into the hands of clinicians right at the point of care.


iMedicalApps is an independent online medical publication written by a team of physicians and medical students who provide commentary and reviews of mobile medical technology and applications. The site receives more than 300,000 views each month.


To create its Top 20 list, iMedicalApps’ senior editors—a practicing physician, a resident physician, and a 4th-year medical student—carefully evaluated more than 1,000 free medical apps.
