American Heart Association Partners with Ascend Integrated Media to Offer Popular Healthcare Provider Handbook in Tablet Format

Overland Park, KS (Nov. 28, 2012) – Custom content agency Ascend Integrated Media LLC has partnered with the American Heart Association (AHA) to offer AHA’s popular 2010 Handbook of Emergency Cardiovascular Care for Healthcare Providers in tablet format for iPads and iPhones via the iTunes store.

The quick-reference eHandbook includes important information and treatment recommendations from the 2010 American Heart Association Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care. It provides healthcare professionals simple, easy-to-use algorithms and drug treatments, and provides step-by-step guides and checklists to help its users perform accurate steps for quality care. It sells for $20.99 via iTunes worldwide.

“Ascend was proud to partner with AHA on this important project,” said Eric Jacobson, vice president, media development. “Use of tablets in the healthcare industry is increasing at a rapid rate, so it’s strategic to offer the handbook in tablet format. In fact, according to Manhattan Research’s ‘Taking the Pulse 2012’ study, 50 percent of physicians specifically use an iPad for professional purposes.”
