Review Author:
Platform: iOS
App or Mobile Website: Mobile Web (see Special Instructions)
Does it require WiFi to work? Yes
Category: Reference
Price: Free
Special Instructions: Go to desktop version of Access Medicine on Miner's website. Click on My AccessMedicine (upper right) and create an account. Using the browser on your iPad go to http://m.accessmedicine.com and log on with your My AccessMedicine user name and password. You'll need to re-enter your user name and password frequently.
Tasks or Searches Tested: Several searches: juvenile arthritis, diabetes and hypertension, acne
Design: Fine - simple and uncluttered. List of resources included at bottom of each page.
Functionality: - Several search aids: suggests possible terms, option to narrow results by subtopic, can select which resources to search - Text incudes color images, videos and links to drug information - Consistently searches Harrison's but searching of other resources is inconsistent. Hits in more resources are retrieved when all resources are selected but results from Fitzpatrick's Color Atlas.
Content: Content does not reflect Miner's Access Medicine's subscription. Includes complete Harrison's plus Current Medical Diagnosis & Treatment, Diagnosaurus, Clinician's Pocket Reference and some others.
Other Comments: What I liked - mobile access to Harrison's including clinical procedure videos and color images. What I didn't like - Having to frequently re-enter my user name and password and unreliable search function. It is inconvenient have to always select all the resources in order to do a comprehensive search.
