(Charlottesville, VA) October 19, 2015 – The first two weeks of October saw the launch of three new sites on the Silverchair Platform.
AHRQ Patient Safety Network
Silverchair re-launched the AHRQ Patient Safety Network (https://psnet.ahrq.gov/) in coordination with the U.S. Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). As part of the re-launch, AHRQ has merged and redesigned previously separate sites Patient Safety Network (PSNet) and WebM&M (Morbidity and Mortality Rounds on the Web) for a more streamlined experience. The new site is built using responsive web design (RWD) to support all devices and is driven by a robust patient safety taxonomy and web architecture for powerful searching and browsing capability. In addition, the site now includes the ability for users to customize the site around their topical interests.
ASA Monitor, the newsletter of the American Society of Anesthesiologists, is now live on the Silverchair Platform in a unified site along with the Journal of the American Society of Anesthesiologists (JASA). Users can now search and browse these ASA publications from a single interface (http://pubs.asahq.org/) or navigate directly to the ASA Monitor (http://monitor.pubs.asahq.org/). ASA Monitor content will be open throughout 2015 with no login required.
Acland’s Video Atlas of Human Anatomy
The updated site by Wolters Kluwer (www.aclandanatomy.com) contains nearly 330 videos of real human anatomic specimens in their natural colors, including 5 new, groundbreaking videos of the inner ear. The videos show complex structures step by step—from bone to surface anatomy—to provide a foundation for understanding anatomical structure and function. The new site is presented in both English and Spanish (http://es.aclandanatomy.com/) in an RWD template tailored to all devices (particularly tablets and mobile devices). Interactive timed multiple-choice exams have been added to prepare students for practical exams, track their performance, and direct them back to correlated videos for review.
