Resounding Health Receives Small Business Innovation Research Award from the National Institutes of Health
Date:10/28/2009

Resounding Health Incorporated offers an innovator's prescription for personalized medicine and recently demonstrated its technology by creating three free e-books on H1N1 swine flu prevention, diagnosis and treatment. The company has now received government support to empower e-patients and technologically enable participatory medicine.

Los Altos, CA (PRWEB) October 27, 2009 -- United States Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship Chair Mary Landrieu, D-La., and Ranking Member Olympia J. Snowe, R-Maine, have emphasized that the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program plays an important role in the health care industry and allows small research and development firms - our nation's innovation lifeline - to create high-quality jobs and cutting-edge products and services fundamental to the country's economic recovery. Resounding Health Incorporated, a leading medical search and information provider, was recently awarded an SBIR grant from the National Institutes of Health.

Resounding Health is powered by an extensive knowledge triad of i) diseases and conditions, ii) treatments, benefits and risks and iii) genetic information. By analyzing the meaning in medical information feeds, as well as web pages continuously identified and bookmarked by its users, the Resounding Health knowledge engine creates, and continuously evolves, a vast internal network of concept relationships. This knowledge base grows and develops much like the human brain: links among concepts are reinforced or weakened as new information enters the knowledge base. Information feeds include millions of pages of authoritative and reliable health information from government sources.

Resounding Health's unique technology allows this knowledge base to accompany users as they visit other web sites, permitting them simply to double click any medical word or phrase, no matter where it is located in the World Wide Web, and instantly have access to the Resounding Health knowledge base of more than 2 million medical facts and relationships, links to related web pages, associated clinical research trials, genetic databases and more.

A unique feature of Resounding Health is CaseBooks™, free e-books that contain essential information from authoritative sources in a convenient package that users can create, build upon, link to, print and share with their doctors, caregivers and others. According to Resounding Health co-founder Dr. Alan Littleford, "future releases of Resounding Health will enable users to link CaseBooks to their personal electronic medical records such as Microsoft HealthVault and Google Health".

A sampling of recent CaseBooks on various medical conditions and drugs shows the diversity of topics covered: addiction, alternative medicine, asthma, autism and Asperger's syndrome, brain tumors, breast cancer, diabetes, drug intoxication, H1N1 swine flu, herniated discs, Hodgkin's disease, hospice care, leukemia, medical tourism, mercury poisoning, liver transplants, lupus, pancreatic cancer, resveratrol, seizures, stem cells, stress fractures and stroke.
