MedlinePlus Connect Enhancement
This week, the National Library of Medicine released an enhancement to MedlinePlus Connect.
With the enhancement, MedlinePlus Connect will respond to SNOMED CT codes with information from both MedlinePlus and NLM’s Genetics Home Reference (GHR) web site. GHR is the NLM’s web site for consumer information about genetic conditions and the genes or chromosomes related to those conditions. This feature is available exclusively for English SNOMED CT requests. The GHR information will be available using either the MedlinePlus Connect web application or web service.
Additional details are now available in the MedlinePlus Connect technical documentation.
