Peter Embí, M.D., M.S., president and chief executive officer of Regenstrief Institute, was one of three people on a National Library of Medicine (NLM) panel to discuss the current and future needs of health services researchers.
Since the early 1990s and the establishment of the National Information Center on Health Services Research and Health Care Technology (NICHSR), NLM has taken steps to ensure that its general activities and its core collections of journals, books and manuscripts reflect the current state of health services research. Additionally, NLM has developed specialized tools, resources and activities targeted toward the health services research community to address challenges in accessing certain information understood to be needed by the researchers.
During the webinar, Dr. Embí discussed how he and his colleagues at Regenstrief and Indiana University School of Medicine use the current tools and resources, which are the most critical and which research and policy areas need NLM focus and support.
Dr. Embí was joined on the panel by Anthony K. Wutoh, PhD, provost and chief academic officer at Howard University and Nate C. Apathy, PhD, a former pre-doctoral fellow at Regenstrief and Indiana University Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health at IUPUI and currently a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Pennsylvania.
