EBSCO Publishing Expands EBSCOmed


EBSCO Publishing has announced that additional items have been added to the EBSCOmed product line. According to the company, EBSCOmed is committed to providing health information specialists with the comprehensive databases, sophisticated software, and personalized support necessary to easily retrieve and manage health information and foster consumer health education. The EBSCOmed product line offers a wide range of medically related and interdisciplinary information to the medical market, and provides users with the latest in search and retrieval software, offering a choice of Boolean, natural language, or MeSH browsing.

Health Business FullTEXT

With Health Business FullTEXT, health-care administrators now have a specially designed resource to keep tabs on the latest information in health-care management-including industry news, benchmarks and trends, JCAHO compliance, health-care regulation, product lines, customers, and competitors, according to the announcement.

One of the most recent additions to the EBSCOmed product line, this database has been designed specifically to meet the changing information needs of the healthcare administrator. From year-2,000 issues, clinical computing, and telemedicine to product supply issues, management of clinical services, and the latest technological advances, Health Business FullTEXT has the resources to answer health-care administrators' information needs, says EBSCO.

"With shifting market demands; rising cost pressures; and mergers, acquisitions, and consolidations, health-care administrators need more and more resources to keep abreast of and find solutions to these various issues," said Dave Mangione, product manager. "Health Business FullTEXT offers specialized information resources that assist health-care administrators to be responsive to the changing times as well as to achieve a competitive advantage in the market."

Health Business FullTEXT contains cumulative full text from 107 respected publications for the health-care administrator dating back to 1990, as well as abstracts and indexing for I10 titles dating back to 1984. In this readily searchable database, users can find articles on such health-care administration topics as staffing, healthcare regulation, facilities management, marketing, finance, and others. Full-text publications include Health Management Technology, Hospital Topics, and Materials Management in Health Care. In addition, Health Business FullTEXT is easily customizable, can be integrated seamlessly into any network, and is delivered right to the desktop.

EBSCO says it has applied expert applications during the creation of Health Business FullTEXT to enable users to derive the most value from the information retrieved by their searches. The EBSCOmed search software assists users in finding a spectrum of information on their research topics via multi-database searching, searchable authority files, links to Web sites, and hypertext linking to articles on similar subjects. In addition, EBSCOmed offers a link to EBSCO Document Services.

MEDLINE with FullTEXT

EBSCO says that the cornerstone of the EBSCOmed product line is its Comprehensive MEDLINE with FullTEXT database. This value-added version of the National Library of Medicine's indexed journal file employs Java programming to enhance the product with MeSH (medical subject headings) functionality.

"With a MeSH-enhanced MEDLINE, users gain the benefit of being able to simultaneously browse and explore subject heading trees," said Mangione. "This functionality enables users to see details on subject headings while still being able to view the subject heading tree, something not possible without the Java software. The Java programming also adds flexibility and precision to searching and displaying information, ultimately delivering more accurate results."

The MeSH functionality also allows users to qualify their headings further to narrow their searches to selected core concepts. …
