During the early outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, new information about the novel virus was being rapidly disseminated by both trusted and unvetted sources. Clinicians around the world were forced to sift through multiple outlets to find and compare trusted information. Immediately, Unbound Medicine found themselves in a unique position to help. By leveraging their medical experience, informatics expertise, and rapid response publishing platform, they were able to quickly collect, appraise, and disseminate evidence-based information to the medical community.
Before the first case arrived in the United States, Unbound Medicine produced Coronavirus Guidelines within their free web and mobile application, Relief Central™. Unbound carefully chose the latest guidance on topics addressing symptoms, epidemic curves, vaccination developments, treatment updates, and more from sources including the CDC, WHO, Johns Hopkins Medicine, and the primary literature. Information continues to be updated frequently (often daily) and immediately delivered to the web and the Relief Central app. Hundreds of thousands of clinicians turn to Coronavirus Guidelines daily for the latest on prevention, treatment, management, and vaccination.
