MedlinePlus® Connect Webcast

The webcast recording is one of the best explanations of MedlinePlus Connect I’ve seen and lasts for a half hour at https://webmeeting.nih.gov/p92647717/

I’m currently on vacation and rethinking a lot of my blogging directions, but (as much as I loathe listservs) had to share this as soon as I saw it post to the one for MedlinePlusConnect (what’s that?) (how to subscribe to that high signal/low noise channel).


The next UMLS Webcast will be held on July 27, 2011 at 2:00 pm US Eastern Time.  The topic is “MedlinePlus® Connect: Linking Patient Portals and EHRs to Consumer Health Information”. MedlinePlus Connect (http://medlineplus.gov/connect) allows patient portals, electronic health records (EHR), and other health IT systems to link to relevant, authoritative consumer health information from MedlinePlus.gov. MedlinePlus Connect accepts requests based on problem codes, medication codes, and lab test codes. It also supports the HL7 Context-Aware Knowledge Retrieval (Infobutton) standard. Stephanie Dennis, MedlinePlus Connect project manager, will give an overview of MedlinePlus Connect, explain how to implement it, and explain the National Library of Medicine’s behind-the-scenes work to support it.

They don’t mention if it will be recorded for playback later but I hope it will be. If so I’ll update this entry with a link to the recording afterward. Edit: Thanks Patrick! It will be recorded and included in the list here, but I’ll also post the individual recording link. 🙂
