The Endovascular Forum, Inc. and the Society of Interventional Radiology Partner to Extend the Clinical Influence of Electronic Medical Care Advancement Through Communities of Practice Designed to Deepen the Conversation of Clinical Experience and Advance
Date:1/16/2009

BOSTON, Jan. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- The Endovascular Forum, Inc. (EVF), an IC Sciences Company, and its partner the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) announce a collaboration that shares a common vision of advancing the EVF Communities of Practice (CoP) goals of reconstructing clinical experiences virtually and engaging in generative dialogue collaboratively to enhance clinical performance and diagnostic and procedural skills. "Virtual CoPs exchange clinical experience, for example, case studies and experiential narratives, as well as traffic general observations, clinical pearls, tips, and best practices regarding diagnostic skills, procedural skills, clinical data, and discoveries," said Robert Reid, president of the Endovascular Forum, Inc. "This partnership with SIR reinforces a cooperative vision that the EVF has put together over the past year. This vision, a multi-specialty medical society and symposia electronic medical care advancement approach, understands that global, multi disciplinary Collaborative Clinical Networking Platforms (CCNP), such as the EVF, enable the exchange and co-development of clinical experiences, skills, services and observations."

The EndoVascular.Org CCNP represents the collection of a class of Electronic Medical Care Advancement instruments that apply medical informatics design principles to engage multi-specialty groups of clinicians in the exchange of information, observations, and viewpoints that advance the community's collaborative understanding of how best to further their respective fields of clinical care delivery. Examples of techniques employed by EndoVascular.Org for high-impact collective intelligence instruments include narrative tools, user-generated tagging, and meta-data collection.

"In a CCNP system such as the EVF, Interventional Radiologists are able to exchange a wealth of information that includes primary representations of clinical experience, such as case reports, narratives studies, research, and clinical images," explained John Kaufman, MD, FSIR and president, SIR. "Of equal importance, indirect knowledge in the form of generalized observations, best practice distillations, and tools and tips regarding procedural skills are also synthesized and shared. As a result, both the primary representations as well as the indirect knowledge cultivated within the EVF's CCNP afford SIR members the very real opportunity of translating electronic medical care advancement into better treatment decisions and better care delivery."

The EVF's user generated, open sharing ecosystem draws from clinical experience around the world and across specialties, and thus collects an unsurpassed body of experience and evidence. With the addition of SIR members to the www.EndoVascular.Org CCNP, the Endovascular Forum's online, global clinician network is considerably expanded to include the disciplines of Interventional Radiology. This also provides interaction for SIR members in the disciplines of vascular medicine, interventional cardiology, and vascular surgery, all of which is derived from the EVF's internal membership as well as that of the EVF's partnerships with the International Symposium on Endovascular Therapy (www.ISET.org), the Society for Vascular Medicine (www.svmb.org), Controversies in Dialysis Access (www.aievolution.com/cda0801), and the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (www.scai.org). The result is an experientially diverse Endovascular and Cardiovascular physician CCNP, representing up to 18,000 physician and allied healthcare members in over 52 countries worldwide.
