Librarians and doctors in Vanadzor in Armenia’s mountainous Lori Region have undergone advanced computer training for their library’s Health Bridge service, which will support clinics and hospitals by providing vital health information, especially about local health issues.
The computer training, which took place in December 2011, marked the launch of the service. Training focused on researching online medical databases. With their new skills librarians will be able to locate and refer community members to reliable e-health resources, and doctors will be able to consult with patients online.
The library has also launched its new interactive Health Bridge website, which features a confidential question and answer service for the community, staffed by doctors.
The launch of Health Bridge was well attended by representatives of medical institutions and non-governmental organizations. The launch also attracted local media coverage, and reports were aired on Lori TV, 9 Channel TV and published in local newspapers. Read more about the innovative Health Bridge service…
