MercuryMD, a healthcare-focused software company that provides mobility solutions to hospitals and physicians, is pleased to announce that MData will be available for use with BlackBerry mobile devices developed by Research In Motion. MData provides physicians with anywhere, anytime access to comprehensive patient information via mobile devices.

To date, MData is the only mobile information system committed to working on BlackBerry’s wireless solutions. MData will be available on the BlackBerry in early third quarter of 2006.

“We are excited to continue to shape the direction of the mobile information system market,” says Alan Ying, chief executive officer and co-founder for MercuryMD. “Bringing MData to the BlackBerry is just another step in delivering value to our customers by listening to and fulfilling their needs.”

The BlackBerry, historically known for email, will make a significant impact on the healthcare industry with MData installed on its wireless devices. With MData, healthcare professionals will be able to securely access comprehensive, clinical information on all of their patients from nearly any location via BlackBerry’s wireless handheld and wireless phone devices.

MercuryMD will be showcasing its award-winning mobile information system at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society’s (HIMSS) Annual Conference and Exhibition in San Diego, Feb. 12 – 16. Company representatives will be offering demonstrations of MData on BlackBerry devices at booth #3713.
