As shown in this press releaseEBSCO Health and the American Medical Association (AMA) are expanding their partnership to give all AMA-members complimentary access to DynaMed Plus®, the evidence-based, clinical information resource that is designed to provide the most useful information to healthcare professionals at the point of care.

We thus decided to interview Dr.Peter Oettgen, Editor in Chief of DynaMed, about this partnership and its benefits.

Who will mainly benefit from the EBSCO Health and the American Medical Association (AMA) partnership?

AMA members, registered JAMA network users and DynaMed Plus subscribers

What benefits will this partnership provide?

  • AMA members gain complimentary access to DynaMed Plus, which is normally available via a subscription
  • Thousands of images from the JAMA network will be incorporated into DynaMed Plus, providing users with highly relevant images alongside evidence-based answers to their questions

What is DynaMed Plus?

DynaMed Plus is an evidence-based clinical information resource that provides the most useful information to healthcare professionals at the point of care. It covers over 4,500 clinical topics, with over 5,000 images and figures, 650 calculators, and 17,000 clinical practice guidelines organized by clinical topic and geographic region.

What technologies are you utilizing to improve evidence-based clinical information?

  • Systematic literature surveillance (SLS) is a hallmark of DynaMed Plus. We monitor > 500 medical and scientific journals through our SLS process, in order to evaluate and summarize the latest research
  • Access via mobile app is included in every subscription, with seamless authentication
  • Semantic search, which includes an intelligent auto-suggest and search results that take you directly to the relevant section
  • Incorporating images and calculators, and providing quick access via the search function

Where do you see the evidence-based clinical information industry in the next five years?

  • Greater need to provide information seamlessly to clinicians at the point of care
  • Need for content that is consumable for different audiences, such as NPs or PAs (to compensate for the MD/DO shortage)
