News: New online clinical encylopedia to launch this year

Article

Medpedia, which is expected to launch before the end of the year, is being created in cooperation with professors at leading universities, including Harvard and Stanford, and will link to content from the CDC, FDA, and the National Institutes of Health.

It won't be the first online medical encyclopedia (see http://www.wikidoc.org and http://www.askdrwiki.com/), but it certainly has some clinical heavyweights behind it. Medpedia, which is expected to launch before the end of the year, is being created in cooperation with professors at leading universities, including Harvard and Stanford, and will link to content from the CDC, FDA, and the National Institutes of Health. Within a few years, the site's designers will create and "interlink" web pages for more than 30,000 diseases and conditions, 10,000 drugs, and thousands of medical procedures. Although the public will have access to content on Medpedia, the site will contain uneditable portions and a "Technical" page for professionals to discuss the identical topic in clinical and scientific language. If you're passionate about a subject and would like to serve as a volunteer editor, go to http://www.medpedia.com and click on "Apply to be a Member."
