The Area Deprivation Index (ADI)

August 07, 2018

The Area Deprivation Index (ADI)
https://www.neighborhoodatlas.medicine.wisc.edu/

The Area Deprivation Index (ADI) is based on a measure created by the Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA) over two decades ago for primarily county-level use, but refined, adapted, and validated to the Census block group/neighborhood level by Amy Kind, MD, PhD and her research team at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. It allows for rankings of neighborhoods by socioeconomic status disadvantage in a region of interest (e.g. at the state or national level). It includes factors for the theoretical domains of income, education, employment, and housing quality. It can be used to inform health delivery and policy, especially for the most disadvantaged neighborhood groups. This will be added to Healthcare Resources Subject Tracer™.

UpToDate

UpToDate
https://www.uptodate.com/

UpToDate is an evidence-based, physician-authored clinical decision support resource which clinicians trust to make the right point-of-care decisions. More than 6,500 world-renowned physician authors, editors, and peer reviewers use a rigorous editorial process to synthesize the most recent medical information into trusted, evidence-based recommendations that are proven to improve patient care and quality. Over 1.3 million clinicians in 187 countries and nearly 90% of major academic medical centers in the United States rely on UpToDate to provide the best care. More than 80 research studies confirm widespread usage of UpToDate and the association of its use with improved patient care and hospital performance — including reduced length of stay, fewer adverse complications, and lower mortality. UpToDate has earned the trust of the healthcare community over more than 25 years because of the integrity of its recommendations, including the fact that we never accept funding from pharmaceutical companies, medical device manufacturers, or other commercial entities. UpToDate topics are viewed more than 43 million times per month, and our 2016 subscriber survey found that clinicians find the answers to their question over 94% of the time. This success reflects the breadth (25 specialties) and depth of our clinical content (over 11,000 topic reviews, each of which answers multiple clinical questions).

PeerJ – Award Winning Biological, Medical, and Environmental Sciences Journal
https://peerj.com/

To solve our greatest challenges we need a 21st century update to scholarly communication. Their mission is to efficiently publish the world’s knowledge. They do this through Internet-scale innovation and Open Access licensing to save your time, your money, and to maximize recognition of your contributions. They aim to drive the costs of publishing down for the academic community, while improving the overall publishing experience, and providing authors with a publication venue suitable for the 21st Century. They have two peer-reviewed publications: “PeerJ” serving the Biological, Medical and Environmental sciences and “PeerJ Computer Science.” Additionally we publish “PeerJ Preprints”, which is an innovative ‘preprint server’ covering Biology, Medical, Environmental and Computer Science. Authors can pay either a low-cost per article publication fee (i.e. APC) or for a lifetime publishing membership, which gives them the ability to publish their articles with them for free. The Q&A + annotations platform provides a second route to recognizing contributions for knowledge-share. This will be added to Healthcare Resources Subject Tracer™.

LitMed: Literature Arts Medicine Database

LitMed: Literature Arts Medicine Database
http://medhum.med.nyu.edu/

From the New York University School of Medicine comes LitMed Database: “a collection of literature, fine art, visual art and performing art annotations.” This database was launched in 1996 and is currently edited by Lucy Bruell. The database currently contains well over 3,000 resources related to the medical humanities. Visitors may browse these resources alphabetically in the A-Z index, where annotations can be explored by title, author/artist/director, keyword, or genre. Alternatively, visitors can also browse the collection by format (e.g. painting/ drawing; fiction; film, T.V., video). Each entry includes a summary of the item’s content along with additional commentary. In addition, entries are tagged with themes for easy browsing. For example, an entry about the television show Downton Abbey includes the tags caregivers, family relationships, trauma, and war and medicine (among others). This database may be especially helpful to educators interested in leading discussions about the portrayal of health and medicine in literature and popular culture. In addition, this database may also be useful for practitioners and patients looking for resources about a specific topic. This will be added to Healthcare Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Business Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Entrepreneurial Resources Subject Tracer™.

BEN Portal: BioSciEdNet

BEN Portal: BioSciEdNet
www.biosciednet.org/portal

Originally featured in the 01-18-2013 Scout Report, we’ve decided to re-feature the BEN Portal: a project of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). For almost two decades the BEN Portal, which stands for BiosciEdNet, has sought to provide “seamless access to e-resources, but to also serve as a catalyst for strengthening teaching and learning in the biological sciences.” Today, the BEN Portal (which has also been affiliated with the National Science Digital Library since 2005) features publications from over thirty organizations, including the AAAS, the American Physiological Society, the Biotechnology Institute, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and much more. Visitors are invited to conduct a text search in this collection or browse materials by subject. In addition, educators can browse teaching strategies by classroom level (K-12 educators; college faculty). The BEN Portal features both free resources and resources that require a subscription: users have the option to limit search results to free resources. This will be added to Biological Informatics Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Healthcare Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Business Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Entrepreneurial Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™.
