Learning Objectives
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
