EMRs in plain English

I had no idea that beginning last month there are now weekly MedlinePlus podcasts, let alone a MedlinePlus topic covering electronic medical records for consumers. Maybe I missed it in the data flood during our European vacation?

I particularly appreciate the instant turnaround on the transcript for today's podcast about electronic medical records. Thank you, Journal of the Medical Library Association (JMLA) blog!

As a reminder for those in the Pacific Northwest (I wouldn't recommend non-natives coming to visit in October for this, it's rather cool and soggy by then), registration is open for the Pacific Northwest Chapter of the Medical Library Association (PNC/MLA) Continuing Education Update featuring an electronic health record forum that I will definitely blog about.
