e-medicine is serving to the human by following 24 hours weekly without any fail for best and prompt medical help. Just as the printing press democratized information, the medicalized smartphone will democratize health care. Anywhere you can get a mobile signal, you'll have new ways to practice data-driven medicine. Patients won't just be empowered; they'll be emancipated. eMedicine, acquired by WebMD in January 2006, is home to the largest and most current Clinical Knowledge Base available to physicians and other healthcare professionals. The eMedicine Clinical Knowledge Base contains 30,000 multimedia files and features the largest online repository of medical education credits for physicians, nurses and optometrists. eMedicine’s subscription site for institutions is www.iMedicine.com. Nearly 10,000 physician authors and editors contribute to the eMedicine Clinical Knowledge Base, which contains articles on 7,000 diseases and disorders. The evidence-based content, updated 24/7 provides the latest practice guidelines in 59 medical specialties. eMedicine's professional content undergoes 4 levels of physician peer review plus an additional review by a Pharm.D. prior to publication. eMedicine, Inc. (http://www.emedicine.com), the medical-education network and developer of the first online peer-reviewed medical reference series, has announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has granted a patent to the company’s proprietary Group Publishing System (GPS) software. The GPS enables collaborative, enterprise wide publishing and allows authors and editors to create large, multi-author projects—online content, journals, books and manuals—entirely on the Internet. Jeffrey Berezin, chief technical officer and architect of the GPS system, said: “The software is unique—it is the only enterprise software that allows all production to take place on the Internet. The system allows authoring and editing within the GPS environment or through word-processing programs like Word.” Software engineer Jeffrey Berezin, who co-developed the system, said, “This system is a complete authoring, editing and version-control system with complete management-tracking tools and a built-in communications network.” eMedicine created the Group Publishing System to publish original, online medical textbooks that give physicians Internet access to up-to-date, clinical-decision-support tools and information. Each submission undergoes four levels of physician peer review for quality assurance. Authors and editors have instant access to their contributions and may update them whenever necessary. The content includes radiographic images, audio and video clips and links to other sites. The system has been used by 6,500 physician-contributors from 1,000 institutions to write, edit and peer-review 65 eMedicine online textbooks that are currently in development for the eMedicine site. The GPS system is not specific to medicine and can be used in other Internet and enterprise publishing projects. The company plans to market the software separately early next year.[Full Text Article]
