About

STEM now offers the ability for users to selectively "add-on" new features not bundled with the STEM download. This functionality enables us to deliver rich new functionality that ordinarily couldn't be made available due to size or other concerns, such as new denominator data or disease models.

Getting and Installing Add-Ons
