Community Memorial Health System Outreach Project

This project will allow the Community Memorial Health System CMHS Medical Library to purchase, install, and manage a dynamic digital signage system. The project will increase the capacity of the CMHS Medical Library to provide awareness of Library resources that are directly relevant to academic achievement e.g., new textbooks, journals, databases; class teaching schedules; CMHS graduate medical education news; National Library of Medicine resources and services and improved patient care outcomes. REMARKS: There are 1,500 full-time employees at CMHS, which is an academic teaching hospital located in Ventura, California. There are four medical residency programs Family Medicine, General Surgery, Internal Medicine, and Orthopaedic Surgery, and more than 80 medical residents are enrolled in the training programs. Anyone who delivers healthcare or is enrolled in academic or clinical activities will benefit from this project; communications will be improved with current, relevant, and useful health information about hospital activities, educational programs, lectures, and other ongoing medical education activities. This project will also improve awareness and engagement with Medical Library patrons regarding collections, service, and access support.
