ROCKVILLE, Md. The Food and Drug Administration this week unveiled a new Web site—a Web site that features a “layered” approach that enables FDA surfers to find information quickly.
“Structure is improved to provide for easy scanning; content is presented in plain language to make it more understandable,” the FDA stated in introducing the new Web format. “In a nutshell, we listened to you. We tested the usability of our Web site by asking our key audiences. We sampled more than 188 consumers, healthcare professionals and industry representatives and other audiences. … This usability data pointed us to improvements to make the home page easier and more satisfying to use.”
