Patient Handouts

David Rothman is developing a Patient Handout Search utilizing Google Custom Search Engine.  The simple design should be easy to use on mobile devices such as tablet PCs.

Printable handouts are culled from free authoritative sources such as UpToDate Patient Handouts, MedlinePlus, Mayo Clinic,, and InteliHealth. There are buttons for selecting Spanish language, seniors, low literacy, pediatrics, and large print. Additional languages may be added later.

  1. Good post. Personally I like to read on expert medical advice online while complementing that with informal advice on both health and fitness. I too use Medline Plus and the Mayo Clinic together with blogs for more casual content

    e.g Content on how to avoid gaining weight during Christmas

    The author here has used reputable links but when there are none of these, I contrast the advice with the aforementioned reputable health orientated websites.
