(Carlsbad, CA -- December 5, 2006) World-class library automation provider, EOS International, announces that the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA), the nation's principal voice for the medical group practice profession, reference library has implemented EOS.Web Enterprise.
"The EOS.Web Cataloging module really saves us a lot of time when we copy catalog from sources such as OCLC and the Library of Congress," claims Craig Wiberg, Information Center Systems Manager for MGMA. "We're very happy with how well EOS.Web is working for us."
The mission of MGMA is to continually improve the knowledge and performance of their 20,000 medical group practice professional members and the 12,000 organizations they represent. MGMA members include health-care administrators, CEOs, physicians, and board members who work in medical practices and ambulatory care organizations of all sizes and types, including integrated systems, hospitals, and medical school affiliated practices.
Committed to providing up-to-date and relevant information concerning medical group practices and the profession of medical group practice management, the MGMA library staff depends upon EOS.Web to handle reference questions received from their 20,000 members. EOS.Web helps organize information from a variety of expert and member sources, legislative and regulatory information and makes that information accessible to the staff.
The MGMA library staff continually investigates what information they need to provide in order to make their members be more successful and the EOS.Web Reference Tracking module is helping them with that task. "We are now able to track our most frequently asked questions and in turn use this information to make better decisions about our collection," states Wiberg.
