Medical WebApp is a platform designed to display manuals and medical books in an interactive, multi-platform environment with access to resources which are particularly useful for healthcare professionals.

Anna

Healthcare professionals must have manuals or medical books at hand and as when needed during their daily professional work. Therefore, it is necessary that contents are always up to date and easily and instantly accessible from mobile devices (telephones and tablets), both online and offline.

In order to fulfil these needs, ec-europe has developed the Medical WebApp platform. In addition to converting a manual or book into digital format, it includes technology that provides doctors with access to specific medical information of particular interest without having to exit the application.

Users can:

  1. Obtain information on all marketed drugs containing any active ingredient mentioned in the WebApp content.
  2. View abstracts of all scientific articles mentioned in the work.

Multi-platform and Responsive Web Design

Web pages can currently be displayed on a variety of devices, with each device having its own specific features: screen size, resolution, CPU power and memory capacity, to mention but a few. With current technology, web pages display well on any device.

The Medical WebApp has been created in HTML5, allowing it to be accessed from all kinds of devices (computers: PC/Mac, telephones and tablets: iOS, Android and Windows) and web browsers (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox and Safari).

In addition, it has been designed using adaptable or adaptive web design technology, known by the acronym RWD (Responsive Web Design), that allows adjusting the appearance of web pages to the device used to view them.

This provides healthcare professionals with access to manuals, both from hospital computers and from their tablets or telephones, and allows them to view the adapted content on the device they are using at any particular moment in time.

Graphic and visual resources

The technology used for developing the WebApp allows resources such as tables, charts, illustrations, images, medical videos, questionnaires and medical calculators to be added to the content.

Tables and charts are incorporated into the content in vector format. In this way, when displayed on a device with a retina display or a very high-quality screen, they are shown with the highest quality permitted by the device.

Use and downloading of resources

The essence of the Medical WebApp is the user’s ability to share information. Tables can be copied and pasted in “text” format and downloaded in a graphics format. Charts, illustrations and images can be downloaded from a multimedia gallery to then be used in medical presentations or posters, for example.

Image editing

The WebApp includes tools for editing tables and charts. All users need to do is select the resource to be edited, modify it and then download it.

Immediate access to chapters of the work

In the lower bar of the WebApp, a button provides access to the full menu of the book/manual. From this menu, users can search and find content immediately, whether the manual is structured by chapters or by layers (sections and subsections).

Search

The Medical WebApp contains a Google-like search engine. Results for both texts and charts, tables or images of the book can be found in a single search.

Integration with PR Vademecum

In any part of the Manual in which an active ingredient is mentioned, the WebApp’s integration with PR Vademecum allows users to view the characteristics of that ingredient without having to exit the web. Among these characteristics is its translation into various languages, its chemical symbol, the ATC code to which it belongs, as well as the marketed drugs containing that substance. By clicking on a drug, the SPC and package leaflet can be downloaded (information source: AEMPS, WHO and PR Vademecum).

Integration with PubMed

The Medical WebApp is technologically integrated with PubMed, so that the abstract of any scientific article mentioned in the work can be displayed without having to exit the web.

Downloading a chapter in PDF format

The WebApp permits an instant and separate download in PDF format of different chapters of a book. The file created can be printed and saved and keeps the existing hyperlinks, whether to PR Vademecum or to the abstracts of the scientific articles mentioned in the text.

CONTENT MANAGER


In order to manage and update the WebApp, ec-europe has created a content manager intended for content authors.

  • WHAT IS THE CONTENT MANAGER?

    A content management system (more commonly known as CMS) is an IT programme used to create a support structure (framework) for the creation and administration of content by administrators, editors, proofreaders and authors of the Medical WebApp.

    The Medical WebApp has been designed both to convert and adapt existing books to this new format and to create a medical company manual from scratch.

    In this latter case, the editorial process is complex as it involves the creation of different chapters by one or more doctors, coordinated and supervised by other professionals.

    To be able to coordinate these projects, ec-europe has created Book Tool, its own content manager, allowing editorial works of the complexity described above to be coordinated and managed.

    The tool allows the coordination of users and permissions; the collaboration of multiple users on the same job, as well as the dynamic management of sections and chapters of the book, enabling users to add, delete or move chapters or sections of the book at any time without this causing any problem.

  • THE CREATIVE PROCESS

    The tools authors can use in the creative process are the most common ones: Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Adobe Acrobat.

    Doctors can write content offline and must only be connected to download documents to be edited and to upload possible modifications made to their material.
