For immediate release
COLONIAL BEACH, VA (February 27, 2003). Donley Technology recently launched a new healthcare web resource. Healthcare Freeware (http://www.healthcarefreeware.com), is a free virtual library of hundreds of online databases of medical information, downloadable software, and other interactive resources for healthcare professionals and the general public. And they are all free.
Through HealthcareFreeware.com, healthcare facility administrators will find tools for managing records, preparing patient bills, completing insurance forms, and scheduling patients and procedures. Primary care physicians and medical specialists will have easy access to diagnostic tools, medical references, treatment protocols, and scheduling tools. HealthcareFreeware.com even provides resources to help industry and regulators promote healthy living, assess risks, and prepare to respond to terrorism.
You can see video clips of medical procedures and illustrations to explain diseases; find information on alternative medicine, drug interactions, and avoiding stress; and laugh at medical jokes and cartoons. You can even read the latest healthcare news.
"We were amazed at the quantity and quality of free resources available to help healthcare professionals," noted Elizabeth Donley, President of Donley Technology. "In an industry of heavy workloads and limited funding, we hope that providing easy access to these free resources will make the job easier and result in better healthcare."
After tracking and reporting on the health and safety software industry for more than 15 years, Donley Technology has amassed a substantial library of information on free software packages, databases, and interactive data sources related to healthcare and the medical industry. In 1999, the company introduced a new web site, EHSfreeware.com designed to appeal to industry health and safety professionals, as well as those interested in environmental protection. Because EHSfreeware has been so well received, Donley Technology decided to use the same formula to create a central repository through which anyone with an Internet connection can have instant access to the company's growing collection of healthcare resources.
