At the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC), the Departments of Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, and Pediatrics in the College of Medicine teamed with Information Technology Services (ITS) and Library Services to create an online retrieval and repository system for sharing digital medical multimedia objects among health care practitioners, educators and students. A pilot launch of the system was done within the above three primary care departments. This presentation will focus on how the website structure and database structure were determined, what programming techniques and software were involved and the results of the pilot of this initiative. We will also discuss the next steps involved in expanding use of the system across other departments and colleges at UNMC.
