The April 2013 HDD Access content release expands upon previously released terminology domains and adds the new domains: musculoskeletal disorders and ultrasounds.
Since the January 2013 HDD Access software release, the application gives users the ability to create and edit local content. Each user can request to set up a "local extension" for locally created terminology content in the user's installed HDD Access database. This also gives users the ability to make incremental updates to their copies of the HDD Access database without deleting any such locally created content. Watch the instructional video, or visit our release notes or documentation for more information.
