MEDPEDIA Adds Health and Medical Videos To Platform
Date:3/31/2010

Contributions Include Videos from NIH, CDC, Big Think and Other Organizations

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 31, 2010 -- The Medpedia Project today announced the addition of health and medical videos to its collaborative online medical platform. This part of the platform is launching with hundreds of medical and health videos from sources including the CDC, the FDA, other institutes of the NIH, as well as from Big Think and other organizations. The videos cover topics ranging from diabetes and H1N1 education, to medical procedures and health care reform. Like the Clinical Trials system on the Medpedia platform, medical videos can now be delivered in the appropriate context online. For example, a video can show up in a Medpedia article covering the same topic, it can appear in a personalized feed of someone interested in that disease, or in a patient community related to that condition. These videos are freely available now on Medpedia.com.

"Big Think is delighted to share this collection of expert insights and analysis with the Medpedia community. We trust that the addition of this video content will be useful in supporting and enhancing the valuable collaborative efforts being put forth by the medical community," said the President and co-Founder of Big Think, Peter Hopkins. Big Think and other organizations are making hundreds of videos available today on Medpedia with more to come. Examples include an interview with surgeon and New Yorker contributor Atul Gawande MD on the costliest medical errors and how they can be avoided; an NIH video of public health specialist Harrison Wein on teen fitness and its link to higher IQ; a National Library of Medicine discussion of malaria in Africa; as well as surgical procedure videos.

In addition to the videos, the Medpedia platform includes a collaborative online medical encyclopedia, Professional Network and Directory for heal
