Introducing the Integration of MedlinePlus for Enhanced Patient Education in DocVilla

We are thrilled to announce a significant development at DocVilla, the #1 Ambulatory EMR PM Software. We have integrated MedlinePlus, a powerful health information resource, into our platform to provide enhanced patient education. This integration is part of our ongoing commitment to deliver superior care and support to both healthcare providers and patients.

MedlinePlus Connect, a service provided by the National Library of Medicine (NLM), National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), serves as a bridge between DocVilla patient portal, EMR systems, and MedlinePlus. It offers access to authoritative and up-to-date health information for patients, families, and healthcare providers.

MedlinePlus Connect accepts requests based on diagnosis (problem) codes, medication codes, laboratory test codes, and medical procedure codes. When these codes are submitted through DocVilla, MedlinePlus Connect responds with relevant patient education information directly related to the code.

Key Features and Benefits:

  1. Extensive Coverage: MedlinePlus Connect supports ICD-9-CM, ICD-10-CM, SNOMED CT®, LOINC®, and CPT® codes, ensuring comprehensive access to patient education information.
  2. Genetic Condition Information: MedlinePlus Connect not only provides health topics but also offers information pages about genetic conditions, empowering healthcare providers and patients with vital knowledge in this area.
  3. Drug Information: When medication codes are submitted, MedlinePlus Connect returns the most appropriate drug information, sourced from the AHFS Consumer Medication Information provided by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP), Inc.
  4. Laboratory Test Support: MedlinePlus Connect responds with relevant information in response to laboratory test codes, assisting healthcare providers in educating their patients about medical tests.

Previously, DocVilla had partnered with Merck to offer patient education information to medical practices. The addition of MedlinePlus further enhances this capability, enabling any medical practitioner using DocVilla to generate patient education information on the fly. This enhancement empowers practitioners to provide better patient care. The integration signifies our ongoing commitment to improving the features and capabilities of our platform, thereby assisting healthcare providers in delivering superior care to their patients. This feature is available to all Silver and Gold members of DocVilla.
