June 16, 2010 – Resounding Health engineers have combined over 2 million pages of health information found on “dot.gov” sites into a single healthcare database. 

PRWeb highlighted this news in their article, “Resounding Health Unites Balkanized US Government Health Information.” Agencies such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA.gov), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC.gov), the National Institutes of Health (NIH.gov) and the Department of Agriculture (USDA.gov) each publish their own consumer health information. Gathering information from these sites and more, each with different user interface designs, terminology, search functions and site maps, Resounding Health has now combined all of this information into a single knowledge base and organized it using their proprietary Medical Ontology Engine. Users will not only be able to easily search this knowledge base, but create customized remixes of the information for their own unique needs.

Eliminating repetition and solving discrepancies is a worthy goal. But we are talking medical information, so accuracy is of the utmost importance.
