|Looking into logos for family medicine & found these on google|
I kinda like the family thing in the Boston University logo above ..
The computer one here is nice too .. but I guess it's a bit too nerdy ..
.. and the "family" ones are OK …
I kinda like this one with the hands too …
Testing a mirror to blogger.com. Cool. It works!
BioMail manual: "BioMail is a program that simplifies and automates searching for biological and medical literature. BioMail will search PubMed, the largest publically available online database for biomedical journals, using your search terms. BioMail then e-mails you the results weekly, biweekly or monthly as you choose."
From the CDC: Risk Factors for Otitis Media and Carriage of Multiple Strains of Haemophilus influenzae and Streptococcus pneumoniae: "Carriage of multiple genetic types of H. influenzae was associated with child's age, antibiotic use, exposure to smoking, and history of allergies. Carriage of multiple genetic types of H. influenzae may be an intermediate step in the biologic pathway leading to otitis media and may explain the increased episodes of otitis media observed in children with allergies or children exposed to smoking."
I just started using the Radio UserLand : RadioExpress. It's awfully good.
I'll try from work tomorrow to see if I can edit remotely too.
Trolling the web for family medicine logos … I like this one from Sugarcreek Family Medicine:
Tonight, I'm writing a business case for a project at the hospital. It's a tough sell. Here's the concept: physicians, nurses, PAs and NPs are health-care providers. We make decisions with/for our patients using the information that we gather.

- last week
- last month
- last year
- in medical school
- not yet
- But we can look it up
If we're trying to gather information using a computer, the usability of that computer for information retreival becomes important … even vital.
But where's the case for this? There may not be an easy sell for spending money on a better UI so that more people can have the "nice" view of the information. Gotta make the case that the "nice" view is really much more than "nice." It's about enabling users to find the right information quickly. On the web, I found: Business Case for Usability, a well thought-out discussion of UI conepts. Not bad, but not enough.
I'll keep looking
Postgraduate Medicine: Pearls: ""Socks first" deters spread of infection Patients with tinea pedis should be reminded to put on their socks before their underwear when getting dressed. Failing to do so can lead to contamination of the groin with dermatophytes. "
Postgraduate Medicine: Patient Notes are another useful source of well-written patient information handouts.
