Roberto Lattuada, myHealthbox CEO stated:
“...myHealthbox is a reference point in Europe for quality information on medicines and healthcare products. In order to fulfil the demand of doctors and healthcare professionals that already use our service we added support for technical documents (commonly referred to as SPCs) so that not only the patients but also the professionals prescribing the products can have easy access to complete and reliable information at any time and on any device.”
In order to take full advantage of these additional features users need to request a professional user account through the web interface, once credentials have been verified new or upgraded users will receive a confirmation email. Professional accounts users will be able to access not only patient information leaflets (PILs) but also technical documents or SPCs (Summary of Product Characteristics)
These additional features are already available for all products with an European marketing authorization in English, Italian or German and will be extended to all countries already supported by myHealthbox.
By the end of 2012 more than 800.000 technical documents will be available to professional users in 16 languages for all products marketed in Europe.
The use of a professional account, like all other myHealthbox services, is free of charge but available only to healthcare professionals.
