US Elsevier acquires Via Oncology, a clinical decision support solutions provider for oncology professionals - 18 Jan 2018

Elsevier, the information analytics business specializing in science and health, and part of RELX Group, has acquired Via Oncology, a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-based company that provides decision support and best practices in cancer care management. A former subsidiary of UPMC, one of the nation's leading integrated healthcare delivery and financing systems, Via Oncology helps cancer centers demonstrate the value of their care to patients, referring physicians and payers by developing and implementing clinical pathways in collaboration with its network of more than 1,500 US cancer care providers.

Via Oncology's Via Pathways is evidence-based proprietary content developed by committees composed of leading oncologists that forms the basis of clinical algorithms covering 95 percent of cancer types treated in the US. This content is deployed to physicians and their staff at the point of care through the Via Portal, a patient-specific decision support tool that is integrated with the electronic medical record and provides seamless measurement of adherence.

Via Pathways addresses more than 2,000 unique patient presentations, including expert-defined clinical algorithms and specific recommendations for all significant aspects of cancer care. Additional services provide nurse triage and tracking of symptoms, cost information analytics used by oncologists and their patients in shared decision-making, quality reporting, and medical home tools for cancer centers.

Elsevier's Clinical Solutions group supports health institutions in improving patient outcomes, reducing clinical errors, and optimising cost and reimbursements. With Via Oncology, Elsevier will continue to broaden its existing portfolio of solutions to create an integrated offering of end-to-end clinical support and active clinical guidance.

UPMC, a $17 billion healthcare provider and insurer affiliated with the University of Pittsburgh, will continue to be a Via Oncology customer. The Via Oncology chief executive officer, chief medical officer and employees will continue working with the company in Pittsburgh. The acquisition is effective immediately and terms of the agreement are not being disclosed.

US The University of the Andes (Colombia) unveils trilingual OA journal site on Atyponís Literatum online publishing platform - 18 Jan 2018

The Universidad de los Andes (University of the Andes) in Colombia, a private research institution and one of the top universities in South America, has launched a new site for all of its journals on Literatum, Atypon's online publishing platform. The trilingual site offers researchers content in Spanish, Portuguese, and English, with interfaces available in Spanish and English. The Literatum platform natively supports content in any language.

Designed by Atypon, the new mobile-optimised site includes individually branded sections for each journal, with related editorial content at the article level. Multimedia such as videos and reader surveys with real-time results are enhancing users' experience.

For the first time, the University can document content usage across all journals. And as of November 2017, 75% of site visits were resulting in a full text download. Literatum's visualised reporting informs the editorial teams which articles are most accessed and downloaded, by journal, year of publication and the selected reading format, allowing them to closely monitor content usage.

An integrated dual-search functionality allows users to search the entire corpus of ten OA journals, or a single journal, making it fast and simple for researchers to find the content that they need. The new journal site cross-promotes relevant titles from, and links to, the University's book catalogue. Additionally, the new Author Services section provides a portal for authors to both prepare and submit their articles. The site includes the entire published backfile of each journal, starting from 1979.

US Inera Inc. launches eXtyles STS, a Word-to-XML solution for standards publishers - 18 Jan 2018

Inera Inc., a provider of editorial and XML software for scholarly and technical publishers, has announced the release of eXtyles STS, the newest member of the widely-used eXtyles product family. eXtyles STS supports NISO's latest standard, NISO STS, officially known as ANSI/NISO Z39.102-2017. Inera's eXtyles STS solution allows standards publishers to adopt this new 'standard for standards' while allowing their committees to continue drafting documents in Microsoft Word.

eXtyles STS provides tools for quick and accurate structuring, editing, and conversion of standards content from Word to high-quality XML, with no in-house XML expertise required. Designed to offer an immediate, cost-effective solution for standards organisations who need to produce NISO STS XML, this comprehensive eXtyles configuration will meet the needs of most organisations that publish standards and can be further customised, if necessary, to accommodate unique publishing requirements.

The eXtyles STS XML conversion solution also facilitates the process of editing standards in Word with sophisticated editorial features. Such features include a unique user-friendly interface for applying Word styles from an integrated document template and advanced tools to identify in-line references to standards and ensure that normative references are properly cited in the text.

The publication of standards is a complex process involving committee authorship, multiple rounds of revision, and multi-format production. All eXtyles STS processes operate within the familiar Word environment, and the valid NISO STS XML created from Word can be used as a single source for multi-format standards publishing.
