National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence: Health Agency Simplifies Information Access for Health Professionals With Web Portal
The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) provides clinical guidance and helps establish healthcare quality standards in the United Kingdom. NICE chose Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and FAST search technology in combination with Microsoft ASP.NET as its development platform. To help professionals to easily access up-to-date information, NICE launched an Internet portal using FAST search technology from Microsoft. There is now a single access point to more than 250 core information sources, and NICE has a highly scalable, cost-effective search platform.
