Health care providers are in constant need of current, authoritative medical information in order to help them take better care of their patients. Patients also need access to current and authoritative medical information to help them live healthier lives and take better care of themselves when ill.
Until recently, such information was usually available only in print form in libraries distant from the point of care or home, and the barriers to accessing the information were quite high. Virtual Hospital is dedicated to lowering these barriers.
Virtual Hospital is a digital health sciences library created in 1992 at the University of Iowa to help meet the information needs of health care providers and patients. The goal of the Virtual Hospital digital library is to make the Internet a useful medical reference and health promotion tool for health care providers and patients. The Virtual Hospital digital library contains thousands of textbooks and booklets for health care providers and patients.
The Virtual Hospital digital library also delivers Continuing Education (CE) to health care provider's offices and homes in a clinically relevant context at their convenience, thereby making CE more effective and efficient.
The Virtual Hospital is a service of the University of Iowa. It contains a wealth of health-related information.
Search for information by topic, symptom, body location or medical specialty. Then, link to articles to learn more about health conditions.
Most of the information is aimed at adults. But you’ll also find articles that specifically address pediatric health. So parents will find this helpful. Most importantly, articles on prevention will help keep you and your loved ones healthy.
Doctors’ understanding of medical conditions changes regularly. Fortunately, the Virtual Hospital features a news section. The monthly updates will keep you abreast of advances in the medical field.
