Curehunter: Visual Medical Dictionary

Curehunter, the “visual medical dictionary,” is worth your taking a look at for at least a couple of reasons: it’s likely that some people in your firm have a practice that touches upon medical affairs one way or another; and as information presentation fans — we are, aren’t we? — we should, once again, pay homage to the interesting technological efforts of a sister profession.

The visual dictionary (don’t think pictures of diseases; unlike this visual dictionary, Curehunter is more a graphic display of words dictionary) presents you with three columns and a search box. Enter a disease, drug or therapy into the search box, choose from a list of relevant results, and see in column two a (seriously technical) definition and in column three the dynamic “drug-disease relationship network” that is pictured below for “human influenza.”
