My NCBI Curriculum Vitae Web Application: SciENcv – NLM – 17 September 2013

Hutcherson L. My NCBI Curriculum Vitae Web Application: SciENcv. NLM Tech Bull. 2013 Sep-Oct;(394):e3.
2013 September 17 [posted]

“SciENcv is a new feature in My NCBI that helps users create an online professional profile that can be made public to share with others. In SciENcv users can document their education, employment, research activities, publications, honors, research grants, and other professional contributions. In addition, the SciENcv profile may include an ORCID® iD, when registered with ORCID.

[electronic Research Administration] eRA Commons account holders who have linked their eRA account to My NCBI will find their SciENcv profile automatically populated with the information stored in their eRA Commons profile. The information transferred from eRA Commons to SciENcv profiles can be changed, hidden, augmented, or deleted.

The SciENcv Web application is the end product of a request made by the Federal Demonstration Partnership (FDP) to reduce the administrative burden associated with federal grant submissions. It is being developed under the aegis of an interagency workgroup composed of members from the Department of Defense, the Department of Energy, the Environmental Protection Agency, the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, The Smithsonian, and the United States Department of Agriculture. For additional details on the mission and guiding principles of the Science Experts Network Curriculum Vitae project, please see the project page.”

NLM and Department of Veterans Affairs Launch Online Registry of Biomedical Informatics Tools (ORBIT) – October 2011

Posted on October 24, 2011. Filed under: Health Informatics | Tags: |

NLM and Department of Veterans Affairs Launch Online Registry of Biomedical Informatics Tools (ORBIT) – October 2011

NLM = National Library of Medicine [US]

“The widespread adoption of electronic medical records makes it possible to more effectively learn from and improve clinical care.  A significant challenge is the development and wide spread diffusion of tools that make it possible to aggregate, structure, and analyze medical record data.

The National Library of Medicine (NLM), a significant producer of such tools and a component of the National Institutes of Health, has partnered with the Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Research and Development and the American Medical Informatics Association’s Natural Language Processing Working Group to launch the Online Registry of Biomedical Informatics Tools Project (http://orbit.nlm.nih.gov/).

This online catalog was designed to facilitate easier location of available software tools and related resources that can be used to turn medical data into valuable information.  Examples of these resources include natural language processing software, knowledge bases, ontologies, and controlled vocabularies, machine learning and data mining software, and visualization tools.

Users of ORBIT can:

•Contribute information about resources -Add comments, questions, & ratings about resources -Follow resources of interest, receiving notification when any changes are made to resource pages -Search by any number of fields including institution, resource type, programming languages, etc.
•Link to code repositories hosting resources, home institutions of resources, etc.
•Share discovered resources with others easily through email or any one of dozens of social networking sites
 
We encourage you to have a look at ORBIT, learn more at ORBIT’s ‘About’ page (http://orbit.nlm.nih.gov/about), or view ORBIT’s page on ORBIT to see how user feedback continues to improve this resource for the community (http://orbit.nlm.nih.gov/resource/orbit-project).”

Public Health Systems and Services Research Workforce Report: Recent and Future Trends in Public Health Workforce Research, 2009 [US] – published April 2010

Posted on May 3, 2010. Filed under: Public Hlth & Hlth Promotion, Workforce | Tags: , |

Public Health Systems and Services Research Workforce Report: Recent and Future Trends in Public Health Workforce Research, 2009 [US] – published April 2010

Prepared by The University of Kentucky Center for Public Health Systems and Services Research
for the National Library of Medicine.

The Center also wrote a companion piece as an introduction to the field Public Health Systems and Services Overview and contributes regularly to a Webliography.

Public health workforce research is a subset of a larger endeavor to investigate the public health system, referred to interchangeably as Public Health Systems and Services Research (PHSSR) or Public Health Systems Research (PHSR).  Several definitions have been offered for PHSSR; however, a consensus definition has emerged.  Scutchfield, in a special issue of the journal Health Services Research dedicated to PHSSR, put forth the following consensus definition of PHSSR, arrived at by the Academy Health PHSR Special Interest Group:

MedlinePlus® Go Local Sites Can Quickly Create and Post Emergency Response Pages – 28 May 2009

Posted on May 29, 2009. Filed under: Disaster Management, Health Informatics, Influenza A(H1N1) / Swine Flu | Tags: |

May 28, 2009
MedlinePlus® Go Local Sites Can Quickly Create and Post Emergency Response Pages

“As of May 13, 2009, Go Local areas using the NLM® -hosted input system can quickly create and display a page with emergency response information. Staff at each Go Local site decide if and when to use the Emergency Response Page. They can tailor the content of the page as appropriate to the situation, and can link to the general services for disaster preparation and recovery listing that is already available on the site. Go Local sites may prepare Emergency Response Pages in advance for situations common to an area, such as hurricanes in Texas.

When activated, a link to the Emergency Response Page appears in an alert banner on the site’s header (see Figure 1). Go Local project staff can display the banner on all pages on the site, or only on the homepage.”

Public Health Systems and Services Research (PHSSR) – US

Posted on May 18, 2009. Filed under: Public Hlth & Hlth Promotion | Tags: , |

May 15, 2009 [posted]
NLM® Releases Resources on Public Health Systems and Services Research (PHSSR)

Information that follows was copied from the link above:

Two new resources on the trans-disciplinary field of public health systems and services research (PHSSR) are available on the National Library of Medicine® (NLM) Health Services Research and Public Health Information Programs Web page in the left-hand column.

1. Overview
This resource is an overview of the development of PHSSR.  PHSSR examines public health-related issues from a systems perspective. State, local, and federal governmental public health agencies as well as private and nonprofit agencies all contribute to this field of study. PHSSR evolved as scholars and practitioners used the methods and tools of health services research to answer questions regarding the organization, financing, delivery and impact of public health activities.

2. Webliography
This resource is a Webliography containing over 300 references to the significant PHSSR literature. It is divided into four subject areas:

* Organization, Structure & Infrastructure
* Finance
* Workforce
* Technology, Data & Methods

References appear in more than one subject area. There are PubMed® links within the references when possible.

These resources were created by the University of Kentucky Center for Public Health Systems and Services Research and funded by NLM.
