Librarians Adding Value to EHRs: Infobuttons and Meaningful Use

Free Health IT Webinar –  

Title: Librarians Adding Value to EHRs: Infobuttons and Meaningful Use

Time:  April 30, 2014, 1:00-2:00 pm, EDT.

Course length:  1.0 hour

Registration Required:  http://tinyurl.com/p3nxmq9

This webinar is the second in a series on ways librarians can add value to electronic health records.  The goals of this webinar are threefold: to give librarians a clear understanding of what infobuttons are and how they work; to deepen their understanding of the needs of clinicians using EHRs; and to highlight requirements for Meaningful Use that may provide opportunities for medical librarians. 

Guilherme Del Fiol, MD, PhD, Assistant Professor, Biomedical Informatics, 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. 

John Halamka, MD, Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School; Chief Information Officer, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center will review the healthcare IT challenges ahead that medical librarians can help support. Meaningful Use Stage 2 regulations and proposed regulations for Meaningful Use Stage 3 include several requirements for decision support, patient education, and quality metrics, all of which benefit from knowledge services curated by medical librarians. 

This webinar was organized by a team of three librarians.  Evelyn B. Morgen, director of the Lyman Maynard Stowe Library, University of Connecticut Health Center,  Jennifer D. Miglus, (librarian at LM Stowe library,) and Douglas L. Varner, (Senior Associate Director and Chief Biomedical Informationist at the Dahlgren Memorial Library, Georgetown University Medical Center) invited and coordinated with the speakers.  This webinar could not have been produced without the invaluable technical support of Meredith Solomon and the staff of NNLM/NER.

Webinar: Response and Recovery during an Environmental Disaster: Learning from the Elk River Chemical Spill

National Association of County and City Health (NACCHO); American Association of Poison Control Centers (AAPCC); and the Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL)

Tuesday, April 22nd , 2:30 – 4:00 pm ET

On January 9th, 2014, Freedom Industries spilled 10,000 gallons of toxic 4-methylcyclohexane methanol (MCHM) and an unknown amount of polyglycol ether (PPH), into the Elk River in West Virginia, leaving nearly 300,000 residents from nine counties without drinking water. The response to this event required the coordination of many organizations at the local, state, and federal level.  This webinar will explore the roles of local public health, poison control, and public health laboratory officials in the response; to reflect on the challenges, systems, and practices that led to the incident; and discuss ways to improve upon future responses and prevent similar incidents from occurring.

Speakers in this webinar will include: Dr. Rahul Gupta, Health Officer and Executive Director, Kanawha-Charleston Health Department; Martha A. McElfresh, West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources, Office of Laboratory Services, CT Coordinator Threat Preparedness and Response Section; and Elizabeth Scharman, Managing Director, West Virginia Poison Control Center

Just a reminder that the National Library of Medicine created a record for MCHM in the Hazardous Substances Data Bank (HSDB) in response to this spill.  The March 13, 2014 Disaster Information Specialist Program Call on accessing information on chemicals and chemical hazards included a discussion of the process involved in the development of HSDB record.

TOXNET: new interface

TOXNET, the National Library of Medicine database on toxicology, hazardous chemicals, environmental health, and toxic releases, is releasing a new interface later this spring. It will provide an improved appearance and interactive capabilities as well as a more current look and feel. See the latest NLM Technical Bulletin for a screenshot of what the new database home page will look like.
