From the GMR: MedlinePlus Connect Webcast on Linking Patient Portals and EHRs to Consumer Health Information is July 27

Hello, Network Members,

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.

Thanks,
Max
