Target Audience: Hospital Administrators and Epidemiologists

Description: The Johns Hopkins Point of Care Information Technology (POC-IT) Center develops electronic evidence-based clinical decision support guides to health care professionals to raise the standards of care and improve patient safety. POC-IT Center ‘Guides’ are accessible through the Web and mobile technologies designed for use at the bedside in both primary and specialty care clinical settings.
 
POC-IT’s ABX Guide (www.hopkins-abxguide.org), launched in 2000, is a state-of-the-art resource for diagnosing, managing and treating infectious diseases. It has rapidly become a premier infectious disease resource in the field with more than 350,000 registered users--half of whom download the application to their PDA devices. The POC-IT HIV Guide (www.hopkins-hivguide.org), launched in 2004, is a single disease resource, with more than 10,000 registered users.  Guides are authored by academic clinicians and subject to rigorous peer review, using a proprietary editorial system allowing the Center to easily  produce Guides in a variety of disease and specialty areas.
 
These tools meet the ever more urgent need of time-strapped clinicians by distilling complex material into need-to-know information that is easily accessible, rapidly viewed, with frequent updates so only the most up-to-date information is viewed. The Guides can be used on multiple platforms with integration of additional electronic resources (such as resistance calculators and drug-to-drug interaction tools) and can be easily repurposed for different audiences and for different types of use.

Dates: Fall 2007 - Fall 2008

Credit Info: 1.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s) per case

Target Audience: Hospital Administrators, Epidemiologists, Primary Care Physicians, Infectious Disease Specialists, and Pediatricians

Description:MedsiteCME provides online, case-based CME programs on the most current, relevant topics pertaining to physicians and associated healthcare professionals.  Instead of the more common, but less effective didactic approaches available to physicians on the Internet, MedsiteCME’s Test & Teach™ programming capitalizes on the keys to adult learning:  make it real world – use clinical cases and solve practice-based problems; probe current knowledge and tailor learning to current understanding; and focus on key outcomes.  MedsiteCME accomplishes this through testing the participant’s level of understanding on a particular item before they receive any education from the program. Our eCME cases then immediately deliver education to correct or reinforce that existing understanding.

MedsiteCME programs focus, highlight, and reinforce appropriate treatment pathways and are designed to improve medical practice and patient care by assisting practitioners to visualize and consider various therapeutic strategies theoretically in an online setting. This format is highly interactive and encourages physicians to call on their well-honed clinical skills, including making differential diagnoses and identifying different types of patients, as well as the treatment strategies that might be most effective and best tolerated for these patients.
