Clinical eCompanion was developed by librarians at the University of Pittsburgh Health Sciences Library System, with funding from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, Middle Atlantic Region. The project development team conducted research to explore the feasibility, usability and validity of the point-of-care information tool for use by primary care providers in answering real-time clinical questions. Participants found Clinical eCompanion to be current, relevant and complete.
The project team presented the results of their work at Mosaic ’16, the joint meeting of the Medical Library Association (MLA), the Canadian Health Libraries Association/Association des bibliotheques de la sante du Canada (CHLA/ABSC), and the International Clinical Librarians Conference (ICLC); 2016 May 13-18; Toronto ON:
