PHC Joins With 'UpTo Date' System
The Medical Board of Peninsula Hospital Center has acknowledged the donation of 10 computer workstations with hospital-wide access to "UpToDate", the most comprehensive evidence-based clinical information resource available to physicians on the internet. This program allows physicians and members of the health care team access to the most current medical information. It helps doctors recognize the clinical manifestations of a wide variety of diseases, access the most current options for diagnosis, management and therapy, including the efficacy, doses and interactions of individual drugs and, identify optimal screening and prevention stategies for patients. Peninsula Hospital Center now joins the league of many prominent hospitals including Massachusetts General Hospital, Johns Hopkins Hospital and the University of Chicago Hospitals and many more where "UpToDate" is currently a part of their clinical practice. Dr. Grossman, Treasurer of the PHC Medical Board (shown above), stated, "This is only one example of how Peninsula Hospital Center - your local hospital - is providing cutting edge service to the Rockaway Community. The Medical Board is proud to be a part of the hospital efforts to continue to provide the very best in medical care."
