  • On the tour you may have heard many of these statistics, all providing a sense of the size and scope of this medical city.It is off scale with any other medical complex in the worldCite some key statistics
  • The Texas Medial Center is a huge economic engine that helps power the Houston and Texas EconomyFor every job in a member institution, we produce 1.3 jobs that support these servicesThe $14 billion in Gross Domestic Product has doubled from $7 billion less than a decade ago.
  • This concentration of medical assets is different and it is want differentiates the Texas Medial Center from other communities that focus on life sciencesThe 20,000 advanced degreed professionals in one area is a greater collection of intellectual capital focused in the life sciences than has existed at any place or at any time in the history of the worldProvides a fertile ground for research and discovery

    11. 11. Complexities of the Information Age• Advent of digital, electronic publication competing with traditional print publication• Proprietary policies regarding control of intellectual content of scientific material by publishers of scientific journals – transfer of copyright or exclusive publication license from authors to publisher as a pre-requisite for publication• Advent of Open Access, Internet publications competing with traditional scientific publications
    12. 12. Complexities of the Information Age• Push by the NIH for real time deposit of scientific data in public repositories of the NCBI – GeneBank,etc.• Advent of Internet public repositories, i.e., the Digital Commons@The TMC• Academic traditions and imperatives regarding grants, promotion and tenure continuing to influence faculty• NIH Public Access Policy includes compromise agreement allowing publishers to maintain exclusive control of published material for 6 months to 1 year embargo prior to open access or articles placed in PubMed Central (PMC), the NIH/NLM public repository
    13. 13. Complexities of the Information Age• Consolidation in the commercial publishing industry – Elsevier, Nature Publishing Group (NPS), etc.• Major dependence of scientific societies on revenue from society journals• As individual subscriptions decline, increasing percentage of subscription revenues from Libraries• Libraries challenged by substantial annual subscription costs with unpredictable demands for increases from publishers and vendors
    14. 14.

    15. 15. World Center for Health Information• With Funding HAM-TMC Library would – Offer International Partners Access to Valuable Electronic Resources Leading to: • Better Patient-Care Decisions • Shorter Hospital Stays • Reduced Healthcare Costs • Opportunity to Practice Evidence-Based Medicine – Obtain and Implement Expanded Informatics Capability and Connectivity with Specialized Personnel for Expanded Services• While the full model faces constraints from publishers and vendors, the TMC Library can serve the role of a valuable consultant and facilitator for international partners
    16. 16. CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES• Given the complexities of the information age, how can the unmatched resources of the TMC be directed to maximal worldwide value?• To this end, the TMC and the TMC Library are pursuing creative approaches to outreach and partnership with multiple entities, including professional congresses and organizations, including ICCA.
    17. 17. VALUE ADDED FOR MEDICAL AND SCIENTIFIC CONGRESSES• Partnerships with biotech and pharmaceutical industries (while honoring ethical standards)• Partnerships with publishers• Role for the TMC Library and other educational institutions and information sources
    18. 18. VALUE ADDED FOR MEDICAL AND SCIENTIFIC CONGRESSES• Acquisition of the latest knowledge and access to acknowledged experts are major motivators for basic scientists and clinicians• In the USA, medicine and physicians are controlled by medical schools, ACGME, ABMS, and state licensing boards• Maintenance of certification (MOC) is now required by all member boards of the ABMS
    19. 19. VALUE ADDED FOR MEDICAL AND SCIENTIFIC CONGRESSES• Maintenance of licensure (MOL) is in the future• For MOC and MOL, there is an increased requirement for CME credits to include credits for SAMs (Self-assessment modules)• Professional societies are working to link the content of their congresses to needs of the members
    20. 20. VALUE ADDED FOR MEDICAL AND SCIENTIFIC CONGRESSES• Access to educational materials (abstracts, presentations, etc.) in multimedia formats before, during and after the congress (enduring materials) is increasingly important• An attractive concept is the establishment of a functional partnership involving scientific congresses, professional societies, industry, publishers and academic institutions (such as the TMC Library) with the goal of providing access to educational materials through the creation of a Knowledge Clearing House
