In a recent ARTICLE FOR magazine publishers, the author noted that readers today are seeking and receiving information via many channels. The endless possibilities the Internet offers as a conduit to information and its increased accessibility through high-speed and wireless technology has made us aware of that, and last month at 24×7 we launched our redesigned Web site. User-friendly, our site is packed with the usual favorites, such as current and past issues of 24×7 and our e-newsletter, Weekly Jolt.

Our advanced “search” tool enables you to quickly locate information about products, companies, and topics from past issues. The comprehensive archive section allows you to research previous articles and departments and our Buyer’s Guide lists phone and fax numbers, e-mail addresses, and Web sites of associations and companies you do business with.

Recent additions, like industry press releases and our Expert Insight section —a complimentary forum where you can ask experts career, radiology, ultrasound, and surgical microscope questions—are easily accessible.

You also will find that our “resources” tab will effortlessly link you to other important Web sites relevant to your work, such as ECRI and MedSun. We are posting fresh news stories on a weekly basis and are conducting weekly polls, where readers can weigh in on the question posted, or ask a question of their own. Our site is definitely interactive and it depends on you to make it click.

With our expanded Web site, we feel we can bring more channels to you in one place, to better help you stay connected to the current technology as well as make it easier for you to find the information you need to enhance your knowledge of your industry and advance your career. Now that our improved site is upand running, we hope you will visit regularly.

And on the topic of career enhancement, AAMI’s not the only one heading to Washington, DC. I’ll be there, along with Mike Brooks, 24×7’s sales director.We hope to meet you, or catch up with those we’ve met before, so look for us in Exhibit Hall A at our booth, #1003. We’ll see you there!
