The Free Medical Dictionary is an application that enables users to search for symptoms and medical terms on an online database. The computer must be connected to the Internet in order for the program to function. The application’s interface is simple and intuitive. There is a search field where users can type in the different terms, and there is also an option to browse through the glossary. When a search term is displayed, users can view its definition. Medical terms that are displayed on the definition are highlighted, so users can easily click on them and view their definition.
Information that can be viewed using the Free Medical Dictionary are the following:
• Medical terminology
• Medical devices
• Health conditions
• Medical equipment and tools
• Pharmaceutical drugs
The Free Medical Dictionary is simple and easy to use even for beginners. Apart from the search feature, there are no other configurations on the interface that users have to change. The only other option is to share the terms or definitions. This can be done in different ways. Users can share by tweeting, sharing as a post on Facebook, on Google+, or share the definition through email. This program alerts that user if there are updates available for the program.
