Great Neck, NY (PRWEB) July 18, 2006
When people search a health concern for themselves or a loved one, they want information that’s easy-to-access, reliable and thorough. Health Site Guide is a free portal and “vertical search engine,” that features direct links to information contained on over two dozen healthcare websites including videos, drug information and much more. Recently the portal added current news by health topic, and free downloads of health-related eBooks, guides, and manuals. These include a pdf version of The Interpretation of Dreams by Sigmund Freud, and important US government guides on Medicare. Free membership is required to access these additional services.
“Health Site Guide is, and will remain, free. In fact, no membership is required to use the majority of the portal, and areas that do require membership, such as Today’s Health News (by topic) and Free eBooks require no personal information,” states Bob Lipp, co-creator of Health Site Guide. “Simply make up a nickname, provide a password, and give us your email address, so we can have you verify membership. That’s it. We developed the search engine to provide information, not to capture it.”
Health Site Guide is designed to be very user-friendly, and recognizes that many people who go online for healthcare information, do so with a degree of anxiety. In the Free eBooks area, once a member logs on and clicks on the "Downloads" link at the top of the website, he or she can choose from several health-related categories. For example, to access The Interpretation of Dreams, members can click on the “Psychology” link and download the book in the form of a complete 327-page PDF document. Other resources include Consumer Health eBooks, which are broken down by categories ranging from a clinicians handbook to pocket guides for staying healthy over age 50. The Government Programs category lists publications for conditions such as arthritis, cancer, diabetes, and info on government programs like Medicare. New guides on different conditions and programs are always being added.
What started as a way to access relevant healthcare information without all the searching has become, in its second month, an ideal resource for the growing number of people who search the web for health concerns. Direct, pre-searched links have been created for fast, easy access to hundreds of healthcare concerns. In addition, users can click on graphics on the Health Site Guide home page to access medical encyclopedias, drug information, today’s news by health topic, medical brochure downloads, and other features, including a Health Spotlight section which focuses on concerns shared by many.
Health Site Guide encourages businesses, universities and health-related organizations to suggest new features for the portal and provide a link to the site, (Link To Us information appears on the home page of Health Site Guide), on their own site, so their viewers can take full advantage of the enormous amount of information available. Links are provided as pop-ups, so viewers can access Health Site Guide without leaving their current site.
