Ultrasound on your iPhone.

Byline: (Staff Writer)

Slalom Consulting has developed SonoAccess, the first free interactive mobile learning application for point-of-care medical ultrasound, the result of a collaborative effort between Slalom and SonoSite, which specialises in hand-carried ultrasound. The application is available for download directly from iTunes or the App Store to the iPhone or iPod Touch.

"SonoSite is dedicated to providing clinicians with tools to improve the way they access information, and there is no better way to do this than having it at the point-of-care via a mobile application," said David Uhler, Slalom Consulting's national director of research and development.

SonoSite and Slalom jointly designed the SonoAccess app which, at the tap of a finger, provides an on-demand educational library of high quality clinical and instructional videos, case studies, reimbursement information and reference guides on point-of-care ultrasound applications.

The architecture behind the application enables users to create a customised profile, complete with content specific to their practice. Based on the application's heavy use of video as well as its potential for growth, Slalom recommended that SonoSite utilise Amazon Web Services for its flexibility and scalability as both content and user demand increases.

"Physicians need practical tools that provide quick and easy access to information," said Gina Kelly, director of clinical training and learning products at SonoSite. "SonoAccess takes the concept of a pocket reference guide to a whole new level and places a comprehensive library of ultrasound videos and information right in the palm of a clinician's hand."
