NEW YORK, Nov. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- For its innovation in pediatric education, AccessPediatrics™ from McGraw-Hill was awarded Silver in the Medical Education category by the nation's leading digital health experts at the 2011 Web Health Awards.
Developed by an advisory board of renowned pediatricians, AccessPediatrics
(http://www.accesspediatrics.com) is a valuable asset for residents in light of the new rules by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education that limits the number of hours residents are allowed to be in hospitals. It brings experience to the practice of pediatrics, allowing residents an opportunity to enhance and build upon critical in-hospital training through its leading interactive platform. AccessPediatrics enables medical students, surgical residents, and practicing pediatricians to quickly connect with information necessary for completing evaluations, diagnoses, and case management decisions, covering the entire span of pediatric practice, from neonatology through adolescent medicine.
The Web Health Awards are an extension of the Health Information Resource Center's National Health Information Awards, the largest program of its kind in the U.S. A panel of 32 experts in digital health media served as judges and selected gold, silver, bronze, and merit winners from nearly 400 entries. Because of the dynamic nature of digital health resources, the Web Health Awards competition is held twice each year: Winter/Spring and Summer/Fall.
