Redesigned Radiation Treatment Resource Launched

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has launched a redesigned online radiation treatment resource. The first major redesign of the Radiation Emergency Medical Management (REMM) website since it launched in 2007 is available at www.remm.nlm.gov. Intended to help health care professionals find reliable guidance to help diagnose and treat patients who have been exposed to radiation, the site provides information about radiation injuries and access to interactive clinical tools and data. Physicians and medical staff also can download a majority of the information from the website to use during an emergency if the Internet is not accessible, and a smartphone app containing REMM information is available for the Apple and Android platforms. The REMM site is a collaboration of the HHS Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response and the National Library of Medicine, part of the National Institutes of Health. More information is available at www.phe.gov/Preparedness/news/Pages/remm.aspx.
