Development of evidence-based medicine resources: Bridging clinical research to medical practice.
We are developing resources for continuous and ubiquitous access to National Library of Medicine (NLM) information sources (MEDLINE, PubMed, and Clinical Trials) for the mobile physician and healthcare provider to support the practice of evidence-based medicine. We established wireless networks (802.11b, Infrared, Bluetooth) and created applications to search these databases. We also developed a content server with the main purpose of providing content to PDAs and handheld devices. We present our yearlong experience and evaluation of handheld devices, wireless access capabilities and analysis of log access data from servers. Interaction with users and online feedback will be discussed.
