The New York State AIDS Institute created a widget to link over 200 New York emergency room departments to HIV/AIDS information . Doctors can use this “one-stop shop” approach to better assess and treat patients exposed to HIV. Since widgets continually update with the most current medical recommendations, they can be both efficient and effective in clinical settings, such as emergency rooms.
We're excited to see innovative new media tools being used for HIV/AIDS treatment and care. Check out the New York Times article about this widget, complete with interviews with the the creators.
