Kenilworth, N.J, November 2021 – Merck Manuals, a comprehensive digital medical reference for healthcare professionals and consumers, announces that its professional content is now available within Microsoft Teams.
The free app, acquirable on Microsoft AppSource and the Microsoft Teams app store, will allow users of Microsoft Teams to tap into a common source for authoritative medical information.
As employees, educators, and students in health-related fields increasingly rely on communicating remotely, the ability to readily obtain reliable medical information is more valuable than ever. With the Merck Manuals app, users can easily search and cite entries about the diagnosis and treatment of hundreds of diseases.
Medical Information When and Where You Need It
By enabling collaborators to seamlessly access and disseminate credible health information within the Microsoft Teams workflow, Merck Manuals serves as a tool for streamlining communication and knowledge-sharing during video calls, online meetings, and workspace chats. Users can add and share content from the app directly to a team conversation by clicking on the message extension located under the compose box inside of Microsoft Teams.
The Merck Manuals app for Microsoft Teams is available in English for customers in the U.S. and Canada.
“Working with Microsoft builds on our ongoing commitment to disseminate authoritative medical information through content-sharing arrangements with innovators in the technology sector,” said Melissa Adams, Director of Publishing for Merck Manuals. “We are continuously looking to build relationships with leading companies and other influential organizations that will expand the reach of our health information resources, which we make available to partners at no charge.”
