The AAAAI recently launched the Allergy and Asthma Disease Management Center (AADMC) on the free, private and secure professional online network, Physicians’ Online (POL). This site will give all physicians access to complex and specialized medical information enabling them to give the best patient care possible when dealing with allergic diseases, and specifically asthma.
The AADMC on POL is divided into four major sections for easy browsing. The Meetings/ Calendars section will provide an up-to-date listing of allergy and asthma related events, including CME/CEU courses. The In the News section contains recent articles from the AAAAI’s publication Academy News as well as a collection of articles called, What your patients are reading. These articles are found in the general media and include a commentary from the AAAAI’s medical editor, Burton Zweiman, M.D. The Current Literature section contains AAAAI position statements, and allergy and asthma practice parameters compiled by the Joint Task Force on Practice Parameters. The site also features an Ask the Expert section which allows physicians to send questions to Academy allergists and get expert opinions. In the complex medical field of allergic diseases a specialist is often needed for diagnosis, treatment and consultation.
The AADMC is supported through an unrestricted educational grant from Hoechst Marion Roussel.
