We are frequently dismayed by the uneven quality of graphics in patient handouts, or in the medicine talks we attend. Diagrams and figures are either lifted from previously published material, or hastily thrown together in PowerPoint or Word. But now there might be a better way:
This month, SmartDraw.com just introduced a software solution specific to the healthcare industry. It helps people like doctors/nurses/healthcare professionals create medical illustrations in minutes.
The product contains Netter and Lippincott images and more specialized content [50,000 searchable images in all], and includes fast and easy-to-use tools for creating anatomy diagrams, patient education charts and more.
They further note:
…Users simply drag ready-made graphics from the built-in libraries and drop them onto a template. With helpful features such as automatic alignment and formatting, SmartDraw requires no artistic talent or technical expertise: even first-time users can create perfect diagrams in minutes.
No talent or expertise required? This sounds custom-made for hospital administrators! SmartDraw Healthcare works well with MS Office, allowing drag-and-drop back and forth between Word, Excel and Powerpoint.
There’s an introductory price of $297, and a free 30 day trial download.
