CPS Mobile app coming soon for CMA members

Members of the Canadian Medical Association will soon have exclusive free access to a new, valuable electronic point-of-care tool – CPS Mobile.

The Compendium of Pharmaceuticals and Specialties (CPS) is well-known to Canadian physicians as a primary source for drug information with more than 2000 product monographs for drugs, vaccines and natural health products, prepared by the pharmaceutical manufacturers and approved by Health Canada.

Working with the Canadian Pharmacists Association who publishes the CPS, the CMA is now making the mobile app available to its members.

“This is another example of the CMA helping physicians provide better care to patients by providing them with user friendly products and services for use at the point-of-care,” said CMA President Dr. Louis Hugo Francescutti. “The CPS is well known to virtually every CMA member so having this resource available as an app should prove to be a real benefit to many.”

CPS Mobile offers quick and easy access to product monographs and listings. A comprehensive cross-referenced index allows users to search by brand name, generic name, therapeutic class, manufacturer and DIN/NPN and is updated bi-weekly making it even more practical for physicians.

The CPS Mobile app will be available in English or French and will be available for download on iOS and Android devices. Members will soon receive an e-mail providing details on how to register for the app which will be made available later in August.
