This webinar is being planned as the first in a series sponsored by the NN/LM, NER on ways librarians can add value to electronic health records. Additional webinars are in development. The overall goal of this webinar is to give medical librarians an understanding of clinical decision support mechanisms in electronic health records (EHRs) and to increase awareness of the ways that librarians can contribute. An understanding of the ways that library resources can be integrated into clinical decision support will empower librarians to pursue this in their own institutions.
Guilherme Del Fiol, MD, PhD, University of Utah, School of Medicine will present results of a systematic review on clinical questions raised by clinicians and tools that help answer these questions by integrating EHR systems with online knowledge resources.
He will also discuss how these tools are being disseminated via the “HL7 Context-Aware Knowledge Retrieval Standard” (a.k.a, Infobutton Standard) and the EHR Meaningful Use certification program.
Taneya Koonce, MSLS, MPH, Eskind Biomedical Library will share the Eskind Biomedical Library’s successful approaches for integrating highly relevant evidence into the institution’s electronic medical record, outpatient ordering systems, and online patient portal.
Lauren Yaeger, MA, MLIS, St. Louis Children’s Hospital Medical Library will talk about clinical librarianship/rounding with the patient care team, Evidence Based Medicine Quality Initiative Project with the residents, and integrating clinical decision support at the point of care.
This webinar was organized by the National Network of Libraries of Medicine New England Region and the UCONN Health Library as part a grant from NN/LM NER for Biomedical Informatics. The planning committee includes Evelyn Morgen and Jennifer Miglus from the UCONN Health Center Library, and Douglas Varner
from the Dahlgren Library at Georgetown University.
