Texas Health Fort Worth Harris Methodist Hospital, Medical Library Goals • Increase awareness and utilization of NLM databases, including WISER, CHEMM, REMM and MedlinePlus to emergency management personnel, medical first responders, healthcare providers, community liaisons. • Expand the Library’s current role and partner with THR Emergency Management, THFW Safety Office, and MedStar EMS Mobile Healthcare. • Increase access to equipment and software that Emergency Management and other healthcare personnel can use at multiple facilities when managing a crisis.
