OHSU and MedBiquitous receive NLM grant

I just heard about MedBiquitous the other day, but it sounds like it s an organization on the move. According to its Web site, Oregon Health and Science University and MedBiquitous have received a grant from the National Library of Medicine to design, implement, and test an information technology system that allows physicians to discover CME that fills identified gaps in their knowledge at the point of care. The project team will map content into the MedBiquitous Healthcare Learning Object Metadata model and implement Web services that allows discovery of content based on competencies.

This sounds interesting I look forward to hearing more about it.

Update: My valiant co-blogger Anne Taylor-Vaiseylooked up the details about this on CRISP (Computer Retrieval of Information on Scientific Projects), a searchable database of (U.S.) federally funded biomedical research projects conducted at universities, hospitals, and other research institutions.

Here's the link to the abstract. I particularly like that, after it's tested and evaluated, "The software will be freely distributed as open-source software and the resulting standards will be promoted for widespread adoption."
