Information access trends among clinicians at a community hospital in northeast Georgia.
Most clinical studies reported in AMIA Symposia originate from academic centers, yet the majority of physicians (85%) practice in community hospitals. We are currently assessing the information needs of doctors in a community hospital in Northeast Georgia. Results from this study may help community hospitals where most doctors practice. Collaborative research in medical informatics between academic and community hospitals should be encouraged, as another type of ‘technology transfer’ from academe to the community.
