July 2010–Digital publications provide instant access to information that, in turn, becomes knowledge. Under this premise, AHRA is excited to bring its members some improved and some brand new tools. For example, Radiology Management articles (from 1995 to present) have been archived on our website for a while now. However, the database has recently undergone a makeover and has been redesigned to increase usability, notably, with a more granular search functionality.
The July/August 2010 issue of Radiology Management will also mark the debut of the journal’s digital edition. It is intended to augment the print version by maximizing the use and distribution of content. Some of the benefits of the digital edition include:
- Environmentally friendly. Readers will be given the choice to opt out of the print edition, which will help us reduce materials (paper) and resources (shipping) used in production.
- More timely than print. Digital version will be available approximately 3 weeks ahead of print.
- Ability to search.
- Easy to forward. Email articles to colleagues.
- Embedded links. Hop right over to any referenced website.
- More convenient than print.
- Easy to save/download.
- Other unique features and capabilities.
Also new to our slate of digital publications is the launch of the AHRA Industry News blog (ahraindustrynews.wordpress.com). This expanding compilation of news and scholarly research is a natural extension of Radiology Management content, which is what makes it different from every other online imaging related news source. It’s unique to what leaders in medical imaging management need to know. It’s not the latest press releases, but rather, the latest research – timely and timeless information that you can search and reference throughout your career.
Articles on the AHRA Industry News blog are aggregated to provide you with easy access to the literature most closely related to the work you do every day. We filter through myriad professional resources to collect brief abstracts and excerpts, which allow you to quickly decide whether the article is subsequently worth reading in full. Search by core content areas, comment on and rate articles, and even volunteer your time to become a contributor. Be sure to check it out and subscribe to receive email alerts of newly posted content.
