IPSWICH, MA--(Marketwired - May 16, 2016) - EBSCO Health and the American Medical Association (AMA) are expanding their partnership to give all AMA-members complimentary access to DynaMed Plus, the evidence-based, clinical information resource that is designed to provide the most useful information to healthcare professionals at the point of care.
The expanded partnership opens access to DynaMed Plus as a member benefit for AMA physicians, as well as for JAMA Network registered users. EBSCO Health is already distributing JAMA Network content through the EBSCO e-journal program.
In addition, thousands of images from The JAMA Network journals will be incorporated into DynaMed Plus -- allowing physicians seeking evidence-based answers for clinical decision-making to view highly relevant images in the same location, and make the most useful content from The JAMA Network more fully accessible at the point of care. Additionally, both organizations will expand continuing medical education (CME) initiatives, which are required in many states for physicians to maintain licensure.
EBSCO Health Senior Vice President of Medical Product Management Betsy Jones, says that DynaMed Plus is focused on answering clinical questions at the point of care, but it also provides a wealth of evidence-based information for those doing research or in medical training. "We can now bring our insights to AMA members more easily, especially for medical residents who consistently show the highest demand for evidence-based medicine, which is the hallmark of DynaMed Plus. Increasing the adoption of tools like this at the point of care has the potential to enhance patient care quality."
DynaMed Plus provides clinicians with the ideal blend of evidence and expertise to help them determine the optimal care for their patients through a real-time, digital clinical reference resource. With DynaMed Plus, AMA members and other clinicians can quickly find evidence-based clinical decision support for treatment decisions at the point of care, using any device.
"This partnership with DynaMed Plus extends the reach of JAMA Network content deeper into hospitals and practice settings, getting the best medical evidence into the hands of the physicians who need it most," says Tom Easley, Publisher of The JAMA Network. "Just as important, it provides AMA members and JAMA Network users a state-of-the-art clinical resource, one we think young physicians will find exceptionally valuable."
DynaMed Plus content is supplemented with full-color images, is optimized to the way physicians work and is designed based on ethnographic studies to provide the fastest time-to-answer in busy clinical settings. Moreover, DynaMed Plus gives insight into the reliability of evidence-based outcomes data with unbiased, at-a-glance evaluations, and clear ratings of evidence and recommendations.
