JoVE partners with Stanford University for Medicine X Conference

The Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE) is partnering with Stanford University's Medicine X Conference to present groundbreaking research on the intersection between healthcare and social media.

"Stanford University has always been a nexus of innovation and has always been good at bridging the gap between academia and emerging technology," said Medicine X Organizing Chairman, Dr. Larry Chu. "Now we are applying this to healthcare."

The conference, which Chu said is an extension of the work Stanford started when it hosted Medicine 2.0 in Sept. 2011, will examine how social media, information technology, emerging and mobile technologies can be used to manage health and improve healthcare.

Last year, the conference drew people from over 20 countries and six continents and they are striving to make Medicine X even more international in the future. Chu reached out to JoVE to help achieve this goal.

"One of the challenges we have is disseminating the information from the conference, given our outdated publication methodologies," said Chu. Many of the speakers will be presenting their research visually, so Chu turned to JoVE, an expert in distributing peer-reviewed research in visual format. JoVE is currently the only peer reviewed video journal indexed in PubMed and MEDLINE.

Both the International Medical Informatics Association (IMIA) and Social Media Working Group (SMWG) will peer review all of the research-based submissions to Medicine X. Selected submissions will undergo an additional editorial review, and be published in JoVE.

"We are very excited about partnering with Medicine X to report emerging technologies in healthcare," said JoVE Science Editor, Dr. Nandita Singh. "Since JoVE is currently the only video journal indexed in PubMed, it provides a very unique multimedia format to report these findings in scientific literature. These video-articles will make the presentations transparently accessible to the participants and the scientific community even after the conference has concluded."
