Karger Publishers and Derma.one GmbH sign joint venture to develop dermatology app
- 08 May 2019

Medical and scientific publishing company Karger Publishers and Derma.one GmbH have recently signed a joint venture contract. The purpose of the cooperation is the long-term, global commercialisation and further development of the 'dermakonsil' app.

Karger will contribute its competences in content management and publishing while Derma.one will take responsibility for the technical and medical know-how. In a first phase, the commercialisation of the app will focus on the German-speaking area. After the launch of the English version of the app, the reach will be expanded to countries like the USA, the UK and Australia.

'dermakonsil' is a digital handbook for dermatologists when diagnosing skin diseases. Since 2014 the app has been developed by a team around Professor Dr. Alexander Navarini and Vahid Djamei and assists dermatologists in differential diagnosis, evaluation of disease state, and therapy. 'dermakonsil' is a learning tool that quickly adjusts to the personal needs of the user. Dermatologists can use this independent academic resource as an app on a mobile phone as well as via a desktop application.

Pensacola Christian College to support student engagement with Ex Libris campusM mobile app
- 12 Apr 2019

Ex Libris®, a ProQuest company, has announced that Pensacola Christian College (PCC) in Florida has fully deployed the Ex Libris campusM® cloud-based mobile platform to support student engagement and success. The campusM platform was chosen for its unique ability to bring together campus services under one umbrella and deliver the school's campus app, myPCC, to the community via smartphones, tablets, and laptops.

For today's digital-native PCC students, campus expectations are informed by daily experiences in the digital economy, where everything is on demand, convenient, personalised, and just a click away. The primary goal of myPCC is to provide dynamic, on-demand access to student resources; convey information on a variety of academic, athletic, fine arts, social, and service activities; and enable students to select and customise the desired options in their campus app. Using out-of-the-box campusM functionality, the MyPCC app employs multiple personalised profiles to offer each type of user a unique experience.

In the future, PCC hopes to extend app usage to prospective students with the goal of strengthening their engagement with the school and raising their awareness of events and opportunities when they visit the campus.

- 11 Apr 2019

Wolters Kluwer, Health has announced that the clinicians can now manage and redeem their Continuing Medical Education (CME), Continuing Education (CE) and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) credits directly on the UpToDate® mobile app and mobile web. In addition, ABIM-certified physicians can submit CME credits earned using UpToDate to fulfil select Maintenance of Certification (MOC) requirements from the UpToDate mobile app and mobile web.

With an unabated flow of new medical research, healthcare professionals are challenged to keep up with new evidence and to identify relevant research that changes clinical practice. Researchers at Stanford estimate that about 1.47 million new biomedical research papers will be published in 2019, with an annual growth rate of about five percent.

To stay current, CME/CE/CPD is a key component of clinicians' professional development and directly impacts their practice of medicine. From Australia to the United Arab Emirates, UpToDate is accredited and recognised as a continuing education resource by colleges, associations, and authorities from around the world. Over 20 organisations in the US and 35 internationally recognise CME earned in UpToDate. In 2018 alone, nearly 200,000 clinicians have taken advantage of UpToDate CME to fulfil their professional development requirements.

In addition to UpToDate, Wolters Kluwer is a provider of a range of continuing education resources including: AudioDigest; Lippincott® NursingCenter; Lippincott Learning; and CEConnection.

Lean Library's Library Alternatives module now supports eBooks
- 17 Dec 2018

Library Alternatives, the module of the Lean Library browser extension that facilitates alternative routes to full-text resources, will now support eBooks. Acquired by SAGE Publishing earlier this year, the technology platform allows seamless access to journals, articles, open access content, and now eBooks that are licensed by a user's library, keeping them from paying for content they already have access to or being discouraged from using content altogether.

Founded by Johan Tilstra and Jan Thij Bakker in 2016, Lean Library's browser extension currently offers three modules: Library Access, Library Assist, and Library Alternatives. Library Alternatives: eBooks furthers Lean Library's ability to help users locate accessible content by identifying one or several ISBNs on a page and then connecting to a customer's Knowledge Base for alternative access routes. From there, the plugin will display up to ten results for the user's choosing.

By including eBooks in the Library Alternatives feature set will support librarians, students, professors, and other users of Lean Library as they further their careers, research, and passions.

The Library Alternatives module works with KBART files from any knowledge base, and with the Alma, SFX, Summon, and 360Link API's. All clients with a subscription to Library Alternatives have access to the eBook feature, though the plugin is only able to find eBooks activated in the user's Knowledge Base.
