23 October 2014

New Platform Provides Enriched Suite of Tools for Pediatric Medical Professionals.

CHICAGO (Oct. 16, 2014) -- The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) announced the launch of its new AAP Point-of-Care Solutions™ platform, featuring innovative improvements to the premier suite of AAP diagnosis, treatment, and coding tools—Pediatric Care Online™, Red Book® Online, Pediatric Patient Education™, and AAP Pediatric Coding Newsletter™.

This new state-of-the-art platform is focused on giving physicians and other health care professionals quicker access to targeted solutions, especially while they are in the midst of seeing patients and in need of fast answers they can trust.

"Time with patients has become more and more compressed for physicians and other medical professionals," said Thomas McInerny, MD, FAAP, immediate past president of the AAP. "With the new AAP Point-of-Care Solutions platform, they can find the answers they need quickly and easily so they can spend more time treating patients."

As part of the new platform development, the four most trusted AAP point-of-care and compliance products all have new sites with enhanced features and new site designs.

In addition to a clean, uncluttered site design, all the sites now feature robust searching, which utilizes semantic search technology, responsive design, and a streamlined log-in process and gives users easier and faster access, especially important in a point-of-care setting. This innovative platform technology is built to deliver an optimal user experience.

About The American Academy of Pediatrics: AAP is an organization of 62,000 primary care pediatricians, pediatric medical subspecialists, and pediatric surgical specialists dedicated to the health, safety, and well-being of infants, children, adolescents, and young adults.
