Date:7/8/2008

PITTSBURGH, July 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Facing a blizzard of health-related information, consumers and medical practitioners can benefit from authoritative sources to help sort good from bad and keep up-to-date on new discoveries and procedures. Vivisimo (vivisimo.com), a market leader in enterprise search, recently published three case studies detailing how health information providers are using new search technologies to better serve their users with quicker access to more relevant information than allowed by older search methods.

The new case studies cover innovative enterprise search applications at:

-- Houston Academy of Medicine-Texas Medical Center (HAM-TMC) Library (http://www.vivisimo.com/docs/caseham.pdf )

-- WomensHealth.Gov (http://womenshealth.gov )

-- U.S. National Library of Medicine (http://www.vivisimo.com/docs/casenlm.pdf )

The case studies detail how the market-leading Vivisimo Velocity Search Platform(TM) is helping these organizations deliver better service to constituents while also demonstrating a good return on enterprise search investment. The ROI can be measured by Velocity's rapid deployment and flexible configuration; its ability to help organizations discover information hidden in hard-to-access repositories; and enhanced user satisfaction resulting from improved, actionable search results.

Houston Academy of Medicine-Texas Medical Center (HAM-TMC) Library

Capitalizing on the power of the Internet, the Houston Academy of Medicine-Texas Medical Center Library is using search to reinvent itself. By using Velocity to search multiple repositories, the library is helping users find information they never knew existed. With Velocity, the library is demonstrating thought leadership to other libraries facing a similar transition.

WomensHealth.Gov

The U.S. government's womenshealth.gov provides a single, non-commercial, credible source of in-depth and timely information about women's health issues. The site pulls information from more than 1,800 organizations and 4,300 publication resources. The case study discusses how replacing an outmoded search engine with Velocity is helping womenshealth.gov deliver more relevant results and position the agency to request additional funding based on its innovative search application and improved customer service.

U.S. National Library of Medicine

The National Library of Medicine (NLM), on the campus of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD, is the world's largest medical library. By replacing outmoded technology with Velocity, NLM is delivering more relevant search results for tens of thousands of users -- in English and Spanish. Spotlighting key content has helped keep the NLM's MedlinePlus website consistently ranked among the best-used in portals for government and most businesses.
