New Online Resource: PubMed Health
PubMed Health is a new online resource under development at the National Library of Medicine’s National Center for Biotechnology Information. PubMed Health is being introduced in phases, starting with consumer drug information provided by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists. The drug information will be integrated with several other NCBI/NLM databases, ultimately providing a linked resource for finding information about diseases and conditions, treatments, comparative effectiveness research, and other related data.
For example, searching for the prescription Avandia in Google, you will find a hit for “Avandia (Rosiglitazone)” from the National Library of Medicine. Clicking on this will lead you to the drug information from the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0001051).
