Keeping children healthy ... and everyone better informed
The Child Study Center at New York University has relaunched its Web site, About Our Kids. The new site is powered by Drupal open source Web content management and was customized by DPCI.
With its enhanced publishing platform, the Child Study Center can promote the latest articles, research, educational materials and clinical care information related to child and adolescent psychiatric disorders. A range of tools automates the Center's publishing process, including the capability to publish and archive all of its scholarly journal articles. After the content management system was configured, DPCI migrated 1,000 pages of original content from the Center's previously static HTML site, including an A-to-Z disorder guide, find-a-doctor resources and multimedia video clips.
Dr. Harold Koplewicz, a child and adolescent psychiatrist who founded the Center, said the new site is a welcome improvement over the previous, time-consuming process to update, create and publish new information online.
"Our new Web site," he says, "is a one-stop resource for visitors searching for the latest information on child mental health issues. We are excited to be able to provide the public with a comprehensive and user-friendly tool where parents, health professionals and educators can find exactly what they're looking for online, quickly and efficiently."
With the new technology, the Center can publish and update its Web site without the need for technical resources and associated costs. And with the new content management system in place, the resources available at the Center's facilities in New York are accessible worldwide to people seeking information about a range of disorders, treatments and doctors.
Tracy Gardner, VP of client services at DPCI, says, "We believe that these new 'instant gratification' tools will improve the Child Study Center's online presence and visibility, giving them a powerful platform to share their very important work to a global audience."
