MedlinePlus Health Topic Subcategory Changes

MedlinePlus Health Topic Subcategory Changes. 2016 Jan-Feb;(408):b3.

2016 January 14 [posted]

MedlinePlus and MedlinePlus en español currently have over 950 health topics in both English and Spanish. These health topic pages contain collections of vetted links to consumer health resources. The links are organized into subcategories, such as Treatments and Therapies, Specific Conditions, and Related Issues.

On January 12, 2016, in an effort to simplify and streamline the subcategories schema, the following changes were made to both MedlinePlus and MedlinePlus en español:

Finance and Policy
Diagnosis and Tests
Prevention and Risks Factors
Videos and Tutorials into "Videos and Tutorials"
Specific Conditions to Specifics

The Health Topic DTD did not change. You can view a sample health topic in XML with the new subcategories here:
