From the GMR: NLM Show Off Your Apps: Innovative Uses of NLM Information Challenge

Hello, GMR Members,

Have a nifty idea to help people find health information they need?

The NLM Show Off Your Apps: Innovative Uses of NLM Information Challenge is an initiative of the National Library of Medicine (NLM), of the National Institutes of Health, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. This Challenge is open to individuals, teams of individuals, and organizations (collectively, "Entrants"). The purpose of this contest is to develop innovative software applications to further NLM's mission of aiding the dissemination and exchange of scientific and other information pertinent to medicine and public health. Eligible software applications must make use of NLM's vast collection of biomedical data including downloadable data sets, APIs (application programming interfaces), and/or software tools.

Read more about it and submit your idea here: http://challenge.gov/challenges/132.

The submission period starts today and goes until August 31, 2011.

Good luck!
Max

Agenda
Lunch and informal conversation: Begins at 12:00
Webcast: 1:00-2:30

Goal
This webcast will introduce information professionals to some of the emerging trends in biomedical research and health care environments that present new opportunities for partnership, collaboration, and support. Translational science, e-science, and electronic health records are characterized by large amounts of information and data. These offer new and expanded roles for information professionals in data management, curation, sharing and integration; new models for scholarly publication; new ways to collaborate with Clinical and Translational Science Award centers and their constituents; and new opportunities to educate health and information technology professionals in the meaningful use of health information via electronic health record systems.

Program Objectives
* Provide an overview of translational science, e-science and health information resources in electronic health records, including the related trends and issues affecting information professionals
* Identify skills that information professionals need to work with researchers, information technology professionals, clinicians and community partners in these environments
* Learn about community engagement in translational science research and roles for clinicians and information professionals in this arena
* Address meaningful use of health information by patients accessing their electronic health records, as required by recent legislation to facilitate quality improvement at the point of care

For a complete webcast agenda, go to: http://www.mlanet.org/education/distance_ed/skills/agenda.html
