MediScripts to Introduce Qology at Preventive Medicine 2014
– Healthcare-exclusive Clinical Search Engine and Social Platform to be Introduced at Preventive Medicine 2014 in New Orleans February 19-22 –
HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, N.J., Feb. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — MediScripts announces that it will introduce MediScript’s Qology at the American College of Preventive Medicine’s (ACPM) annual meeting, Preventive Medicine 2014, in New Orleans, LA. Qology is an award-winning clinical search engine and social platform for physicians. Qology, developed by MediScripts to help healthcare providers work smart, will allow Preventive Medicine 2014 attendees to find answers to clinical questions from trusted sources and collaborate with peers to improve the quality of patient care.
“Qology was created to help practitioners securely connect with peers to validate, refine and share diagnoses and care recommendations, as well as search trusted clinical resources,” said MediScripts Chief Qologist, Joan Arata. “By connecting with ACPM and its members, preventive medicine physicians will have access to Qology’s robust platform of clinical content and peer communities at no-charge.”
Clinical content available on Qology includes more than five million peer-reviewed journal articles and abstracts from PubMed (including PubMed Central full-text articles), evidence-based treatment protocols/guidelines from the Agency of Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), and full text access to McGraw Hill’s classic medical reference, Harrison’s Online. These trusted sources will allow preventive medicine physicians to stay abreast of current clinical information and trends to improve the value of care delivered. Qology is a gated platform exclusively for healthcare practitioners, allowing users to feel confident they are interacting only with other licensed practitioners.
“We are continuously seeking innovative ways to deliver value to our members and are thrilled to introduce Qology to our membership,” said ACPM Chief Development Officer Maureen Simmons, MA, CFRE. “The collaborative nature of Qology coupled with its emphasis on evidence-based resources is synergistic with ACPM’s focus on evidence-based disease prevention and health promotion.”
Starting today, ACPM members will be able to access Qology at askqology.com. ACPM members attending Preventive Medicine 2014 can learn more about Qology and receive a live demonstration of the platform by visiting booth #21.
