Procedures Consult Partners With MyEvaluations.com To Improve Procedures Training And Competency
Integration of Procedures Consult’s online procedures reference and training solution with MyEvaluations.com’s residency management software provides enhanced procedures training and competency tracking for residency programs
September 10, 2008, Philadelphia, PA - Elsevier, the leading publisher of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, announced today that Procedures Consult – an online, multimedia procedures training and reference tool for medical students and residents – has partnered with MyEvaluations.com, a leading medical education training management service provider, to enhance residency training in medical procedures.
MyEvaluations.com uses patented on-line technology to allow residency, fellowship and medical school programs to fully manage their medical education electronically, including MyPortfolio™ for competency-based tracking of academic and clinical activities. The company’s software allows programs to design, assign and review their own evaluations, procedures and patient logs. MyEvaluations.com facilitates compliance with graduate medical education requirements by ensuring that residents perform procedures competently under medical supervision.
“The combination of these two tools saves program directors time so they can more fully devote themselves to medical education and training, while attending physicians and residents will find the process of documenting and meeting specialty certification requirements far less burdensome,” said Jonathan Teich, MD, PhD, and Elsevier’s Chief Medical Informatics Officer. “This streamlines the entire procedure training process – multimedia education and review, documentation for residency program requirements, and competency testing – as part of a complete academic evaluation system.”
The partnership enables:
- Single sign-in capability for institutions that subscribe to both applications;
- Contextual, single-click access to the content on Procedures Consult from the procedures submission area and within the universal navigation on MyEvaluations.com; and,
- The ability to capture and view the knowledge competency tracking data from Procedures Consult within the MyPortfolio section on MyEvaluations.com, which captures other metrics of knowledge development such as lectures attended and assigned academic materials reviewed.
“This initiative enhances the value of MyEvaluations.com to current institutional subscribers by providing the ability to offer direct and integrated access to Procedures Consult's leading procedures reference and competency tracking solution,” said David Melamed, CEO of MyEvaluations.com.
