Usability Upgrades Announced for EMA's Website

Posted 09 May 2012 | By Alexander Gaffney, RAC 

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) has announced it has rolled out several usability upgrades for its website, allowing regulatory professionals to access a host of new and customizable features that should be particularly useful in uncovering the latest regulatory intelligence.

Some of the new features announced by EMA include RSS feeds for individual medicines, additional filters for its "What's New?" webpage containing all of EMA's latest documents, a rating system for content on the website and the ability to download medicines information into a data file.

EMA also said it is moving to make its website easier to read, incorporating an online glossary of regulatory terminology that, once completed, will allow users to hover their cursor over a word to see its proper definition. That feature should be unveiled sometime in June 2012.

The ability to track individual drug products by way of an RSS feed may prove to be one of the most significant developments, allowing regulatory professionals to access just the information they want or need about a particular drug product without needing to sift through information pertaining to hundreds of other products.
