Merck Manual Available Free Online

Friday, February 19th, 2016

If you hadn’t heard, the Merck Manual has moved from print books to putting editions online for free.  You may want to let your user population know or add a link to your list of health and pharmacology resources.

Users need not register or provide personal information. Two versions  are available, one for consumers and one for professionals. The same information is available, but the consumer site is designed and punctuated with language that is easy to understand for patients and consumers. The first edition was published in 1899 as a small reference book for physicians and pharmacists, but has grown to become one of the most widely used medical resources. /ch

New Guidelines Make it Easier for You to Access Medical Records

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2016

New guidelines issued last month make access to your medical records easier. You no longer need to state a reason for requesting your records, and you may request that the records be sent via mail or email. Providers must provide copies within 30 days of request. You cannot be denied access, even if you have unpaid medical bills. In a few very rare cases, providers may deny request.
