Elsevier expands Procedures Consult with emergency medicine, orthopedics and anesthesia procedures
Date:4/15/2008

Philadelphia, PA April 15, 2008 Elsevier, the leading publisher of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, announced today that it has added three new modules to Procedures Consult in orthopedics, anesthesia and emergency medicine. Procedures Consult (www.proceduresconsult.com), which Elsevier launched in July 2007 with 40 procedures in internal medicine, is an online multimedia resource that helps physicians, medical residents and students learn, perform and test their knowledge of the most frequent medical procedures. The site currently contains 140 separate procedures including actual procedure videos, text and animation.

Other unique features include highlighted patient safety guidelines consistent with standards established by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

"Medical procedures are potentially high-risk situations, particularly when physicians are learning the procedure for the first or second time, or if they have not performed the procedure recently, said Jonathan Teich, MD, PhD, and Elseviers Chief Medical Informatics Officer. "By providing immediate online access to detailed step-by-step multimedia information on procedure execution, along with indications and other considerations, Procedures Consult reduces the potential for medical errors and complications. Its ability to document procedures for residency requirements and competency tracking adds additional value for education and quality improvement.

In addition to medical students and residents, other potential users of Procedures Consult include practicing physicians, physician assistants, certified registered nurse anesthetists, operating room nurses, advanced practice nurses and respiratory therapists.

Healthcare organizations, including hospitals, medical groups and medical schools, can customize Procedures Consult to fit their needs. They can add procedure-specific alerts and links to organizational resources, such as informed consent forms, hospital standard procedures or patient education materials, while also monitoring physician test completion for credentialing compliance.
