Lightning Round Application: “Health Information Practice Summit” at MLA Midwest Chapter Annual Meeting, Monday, October 7th, 2013

Calling all HIPsters! (Health Information Practitioners, that is!)

The University of Illinois at Chicago Library of the Health Sciences is sponsoring a “Health Information Practice Summit” during the Midwest Chapter/MLA meeting in East Peoria, IL on October 7, 2013. The purpose of the Summit is to gather Midwestern health sciences librarians of all varieties to discuss the changes taking place in our environments and exchange stories about what we are doing to address the challenges and opportunities engaging us.

*Share Your Story*
We would like to hear about how librarians are changing the way they practice to solve a problem, enhance a clinical service, contribute to an IRB or systematic review, consult on EHR utilization, organize big data, remove a barrier to access, transform health workforce training or education, advance research, or facilitate the creation and transfer of knowledge in your organization, etc.The HIP Summit is focused on changing roles and innovative information practices rather than new technology trends.

*How: Present a 5-minute Lightning Round segment in the HIP Summit
