Done, what a great chat! Transcript http://t.co/SApq6JBso8

Affordable Care Act Joint Discussion of JAMA Article Above
Thursday, September 26, 2013
9:00 pm Eastern/6:00 pm Pacific time
#medlibs Twitter chat + #meded

Below are the rough draft questions we'll work on for a focused discussion - please be sure to include both #meded + #medlibs hashtags as you can, or feel free to retweet great links/ideas shared on one with the other hashtag. This is a new experience for both our groups but a great opportunity!

Tweet 1 (~9:05): This wk in @JAMA_current, @jfsollen discusses the evolving role of libraries & #medlibs in healthcare http://jama.jamanetwork.com/article.aspx?articleid=1741829 #meded

Tweet 2: With that in mind tonight's chat is a combined effort to get perspectives from both #medlibs & #meded folk!

Tweet 3: TOPIC 1: How could the expertise of #medlibs benefit various levels of #meded, and vice versa?

Tweet 4 (~9:22): TOPIC 2: What are some novel ways #medlibs & academic docs can (or already do) collaborate to improve #meded?
Tweet 5 (~9:38): How should the value of incorporating #medlibs into #meded & pt care teams be studied & measured?

First Twitter chat and not sure what to do? Here's a Quick Guide to Twitter Chats to help!

Join us for a collaborative discussion hosted by Nikki Dettmar (@eagledawg) on what medical libraries are doing to support information sharing about the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

20 Things to Know about the Affordable Care Act is a Washington-state based resource, but most information is still helpful for national information in a plain language 'top 20' format with links to additional resources including a glossary of common ACA terms & acronyms.  Somewhere deep in this resource it mentions it was written with the assistance of the Kaiser Family Foundation - keep an eye for similar ones for your state!
