MedlinePlus Connect Update
MedlinePlus Connect is a free service of the National Library of Medicine (NLM) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This service allows electronic health record (EHR) systems to easily link users to MedlinePlus, an authoritative, up-to-date health information resource for patients, families, and health care providers.
MedlinePlus Connect Web service complements the previously released Web application. The Web service will give EHRs more flexibility in how they return MedlinePlus information and links to patients and providers. A technical details page teaches you how to implement MedlinePlus Connect. To show how the service responds to requests, we created a Web service demonstration page. You can continue to access overview and other information at http://medlineplus.com/connect.
Also, MedlinePlus created a page that lists some of the health care organizations and electronic health record systems that are using MedlinePlus Connect. This is not a comprehensive list.
The groups on this list have told NLM they are using MedlinePlus Connect and agreed to appear on this page. Organizations or EHR systems who are using MedlinePlus Connect and want to be added to the list can send us a note through the Contact Us link at the top of any MedlinePlus page.
If you would like to introduce your organization to MedlinePlus Connect, a tri-fold is available on our handouts page.
