James Heilman has published "Open Access to a High-Quality, Impartial, Point-of-Care Medical Summary Would Save Lives: Why Does It Not Exist?" in PLOS Medicine.
Here's an excerpt:
- Currently no open access point-of-care (POC) medical summary aimed at a professional audience exists.
- Some nonprofit and multiple professional, for-profit POC medical summaries are frequently accessed by clinicians and policymakers.
- Efforts to create open access POC summaries have been stymied by the difficulty of attracting high-quality contributors.
- The open access medical publishing community can create this resource with engaged donors, crowd-sourcing, and technology.
