Who

HPC's team of expert hospital librarians use a simple, flexible approach to manage corporate medical research and library support that reduces costs while expanding library services. We help maintain all the critical features you need from your library, including access to evidence-based resources and a lifelong partnership with HPC.

What

Hospitals and corporations depend on libraries to provide their employees with access to evidence-based information and research. In healthcare, medical libraries support evidence-based practice in medicine and nursing and fulfill specific requirements for hospital accreditation and other forms of distinction.

Why

Over the past decade technology has changed the way we live, how we learn, and even how we perform research. Digital modalities are replacing traditional learning models that relied on stacks of research journals and printed books in libraries and brick-and-mortar classrooms. We see this shift occurring everywhere.

What is the purpose of a Medical Library?

A health or medical library is designed to assist physicians, health professionals, students, patients, consumers, medical researchers, and information specialists in finding health and scientific information to improve, update, assess, or evaluate health care.

A study in 118 hospitals with more than 16,122 participants found that:

  • 95% reported that information provided by a librarian resulted in better informed clinical decisions
  • 48% changed advice given to a patient
  • 33% changed the choice of drugs
  • 25% changed a diagnosis
  • 23% changed the choice of tests
  • 12% changed post-hospital care or treatment as a result of using resources and services provided by librarians or the library
