1 Multimedia Assets Management for Health Sciences Education Sandra McIntyre, M.Ed. Program Manager

2 HEAL Mission To provide free digital multimedia teaching resources of the highest quality that meet the needs of todays health sciences educators and learners. HEAL promotes the preservation and exchange of useful educational assets within a worldwide community, while respecting ownership and privacy.

3 Objectives High quality materials Access at no cost Cataloged with health sciences content metadata Sophisticated searching engine National scope

4 Collaboration Multi-institutional: David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA University of Oklahoma College of Medicine Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library, University of Utah Multidisciplinary: Health sciences libraries Health sciences educators

5 Team Primary investigators: Sharon Dennis, MS -- University of Utah Chris Candler, MD -- University of Oklahoma Sebastian Uijtdehaage, PhD -- UCLA Nine other staff members (6.5 FTEs) at the three locations New grant with Health Sciences Library at University of California, San Francisco

6 Support Grant support: National Science Foundations National Science Digital Library initiative National Library of Medicine Direct support (proposed): Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC)


8 Initial Collection Scope Gross Anatomy Histology Physiology Biochemistry Neuroscience Molecular Biology Genetics Pathology Microbiology Epidemiology Pharmacology Typical undergraduate medical education curriculum, with basic sciences initially:

9 Histology image Anatomy image Pathology image X-Ray image Typical assets MRI image

10 Typical assets Video Animation Web page

11 Additional formats to come Text Presentations Chemical structures Java applets Patient cases

12 Federated Collection HEAL Index BCDEFG HEAL Appn A User

13 Repository/Referatory

14 Tiered Architecture

15 Metadata Schema Based on Instructional Management Systems (IMS) standard Additional fields for health sciences use, with Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) 26 content elements (8 required) Broad support important Grant funding to implement concept mapping to the Unified Medical Language System (UMLS) metathesaurus

16 MeSH Search Applet

17 Browsing by MeSH Terms

18 Latest additions Neurologic Exam videos Tobacco Awareness Program University of Miami School of Medicine Knowledge Weavers animations MedlinePLUS Patient Education tutorials

19 Collection Development Formalizing: Collection Development Policy Accessioning Workflow OAI tools in place Full-time cataloger Offers from more than 50 partner organizations and individual contributors Spring 2004 goal: 50,000 items

20 Accessioning Methods

21 Contributing online

22 Initial Partners Knowledge Weavers, University of Utah BioScience Educational Network (BEN) Pathology Education Instructional Resource (PEIR) Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching (MERLOT) health sciences resources Tufts University Sciences Knowledgebase (TUSK) Molsen Project at McGill University NLMs EtherMed Small collections from Slice of Life community

23 Building a Culture of Sharing Free access Peer review of multimedia contributions Clearing out copyright confusion Assisting with cataloging Assisting with maintaining patient privacy AAMC endorsement

24 Protecting Intellectual Property Creative Commons licensing engine

25 Protecting Patient Privacy Federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA): new requirements HEALs new patient release form – conforms to HIPAA and California regulations

26 Next Challenges Integration with curriculum management system (AAMCs CurrMIT) Metadata for more complex objects Cases, particularly virtual patient cases Quizzes Tutorials Peer review online tools Online user reviews Consumer and patient education interface

27 Enhanced Discovery NLM three-year grant in July 2003: Lexical tools, results ranking, and other search enhancements Concept mapping to Unified Medical Language System (UMLS) metathesaurus Training and user support

28 Portable Version for Localized Use NLM three-year grant October 2003: Modifications to HEAL code Pilot and testing at three medical schools Training and support materials High demand Links to national HEAL at users option
