Watch this 3 minute and 44 second video for a quick overview of a new web-based tool institutions can use to track compliance with the NIH Public Access Policy.
As part of ongoing efforts to meet the goals of the federal Digital Government Strategy, the Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) is making available 33 free health mobile apps.
The apps are geared to both consumers and healthcare professionals and offer functions such as tracking health status, accessing medical information, smoking cessation, educating EMS professionals and educators on field triage, aiding physicians in identifying appropriate patient-specific preventive services, finding an HIV/AIDS treatment professional, tracking influenza-like illness activity, accessing a national directory of health hotlines, finding community health centers and recording current and past medication histories.
The National Institutes of Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, National Library of Medicine, Health Resources and Services Administration, National Cancer Institute, National Human Genome Research Institute and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services developed the apps.
The National Library of Medicine has collaborated with the NIH Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS) on a new database containing dietary supplement label information.
The new database [http://www.dsld.nlm.nih.gov/dsld/] captures information on dietary supplements’ labels and allows the searching, sorting, and filtering capabilities needed by researchers. Its data can be saved and analyzed. It is a significantly larger effort than the earlier NLM Dietary Supplements Labels Database and already contains 17,000 labels and images of labels. It is expected to grow rapidly over the next three years, eventually covering most of the 55,000 dietary supplement products sold to American consumers.
