DHMH Offers New Health Alerts for Maryland Providers
The Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene has announced that it is collaborating with Medscape, a web information service for health care providers, in order to distribute critical Health Alerts to providers in Maryland.
The collaboration will help build upon the Department’s ability to notify health care providers when there is critical health information, such as infectious disease outbreaks, environmental and product safety advisories, preparedness planning and response, and public health developments of interest to clinicians. When the Department has such information, it will provide the information in the form of an alert to Medscape, which will then send the information via email to all of its registered users located in Maryland.
“The ability to communicate quickly and efficiently with health care providers is critical to protecting and promoting the health of all Marylanders,” said Dr. Joshua M. Sharfstein, Secretary of DHMH. “Medscape will expand our reach, helping us put important information in the hands of physicians and other health care workers.”
Health care providers who register on www.Medscape.com and indicate a Maryland zip code will receive alerts distributed through this partnership. Over 50,000 Maryland Health Care Professionals are active users and access Medscape content free of charge. The partnership does not preclude the Department from distributing alert information through other channels, or from partnering with other membership organizations to distribute provider alert information. All information distributed through Medscape will also be made available on the Department’s website. http://www.dhmh.maryland.gov
