AuntMinnie radiology community launches AuntMinnieMobile service for PDA users

Tucson 27 November 2002AuntMinnie.com, an on-line community for radiology professionals, has launched AuntMinnieMobile, a new service designed for users of handheld personal digital assistants (PDAs). AuntMinnieMobile enables radiology professionals to download and view AuntMinnie's award-winning clinical and business content on any PDA equipped with the AvantGo content delivery service. AuntMinnieMobile is available as an AvantGo channel that can be downloaded to a user's PDA, free of charge. AvantGo supports both the Pocket PC and Palm platforms.

"AuntMinnieMobile represents the next frontier of content delivery sending health care providers crucial information that they can use at the point of care", stated Dr. Phillip Berman, AuntMinnie President. "This new service is part of AuntMinnie's mission to provide a wide range of decision-support content and services to radiology professionals."

AuntMinnieMobile was made possible through an educational grant from Medical Manager Health Systems Inc., a WebMD Company. Medical Manager is a provider of health care information systems and services including integrated Radiology Information System (RIS) and Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) solutions.

AuntMinnieMobile will be officially launched at the Radiological Society of North America meeting, December 1-6 in Chicago's McCormick Place. As an added bonus, AuntMinnieMobile users with wireless PDA capability will be able to update their AuntMinnieMobile content instantly in the conference hall thanks to "hot spots" that the RSNA has set up supporting the 802.11b or "Wi-Fi" wireless connectivity protocol.
