Learn More about the new Health Insurance Marketplace!

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will offer web-based trainings in August & September to learn more about the Health Insurance Marketplace.

I. Health Insurance Marketplace 101 – For people who want to better understand the basics of the Health Insurance Marketplace. Includes an overview of the accomplishments of the Affordable Care Act, and a basic introduction to the Marketplace (Exchanges) highlighting who is eligible and how the Marketplace will work.

· August 28, 2013 1:00 – 2:00 pm ET https://goto.webcasts.com/starthere.jsp?ei=1020209

· September 5, 2013 1:00 – 2:00 pm ET https://goto.webcasts.com/starthere.jsp?ei=1020210

· September 25, 2013 1:00 – 2:00 pm ET https://goto.webcasts.com/starthere.jsp?ei=1020212

II. Understanding the Health Insurance Marketplace – For those who help people make informed health

coverage decisions. This detailed review of the Marketplace (Exchanges), includes eligibility, enrollment,

plan structure, Medicaid expansion, and the streamlined application. This session covers many of the same

topics as the Health Insurance Marketplace 101 session, but it is provided in more depth. We suggest you

take this or Marketplace 101, not both.

More Health Insurance Marketplace instructional videos can be viewed at the CMS Health Insurance Marketplace Multimedia page.

Multimedia now easily available on OvidSP

On July 23rd, videos and images were made available on OvidSP. You now have institutional access to the multimedia assets belonging to the journals and books the library currently subscribes to!

Access to videos of procedures, expert interviews, diagnosis and treatment techniques, lectures and article discussions, as well as images for visual diagnosis, education, presentations and more. All available multimedia assets will be identifiable in your search results. Browse all related video and images while still maintaining access to your full-text content results. You can filter multimedia search results by media type, duration of video, subject matter and other criteria—and print, export, download, and email results to colleagues.

First conduct your search. If multimedia are available they will appear at the top of the Results list as seen below. Note the link to “See more multimedia results.” Click on that link to see all multimedia available from your search results.

Trial of CINAHL (Cumulative index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature) database

This is a reminder that there is only two weeks left of the library’s free trial on CINAHL Complete. Please give it a try and send us your feedback at library or x5161.

The library is conducting a trial of the CINAHL database starting now through ending September 9 and we need your help.

The version we are testing is CINAHL Complete which includes a fair amount of full text. If we decide to purchase CINAHL, this may not be the version we go with.

Please give it a good try and send us feedback as to your experience regarding its usefulness. For example, does it give you more than you can get on Ovid Medline or Nursing@Ovid?

This feedback will be instrumental in determining whether or not we try to subscribe to it.

Access to CINAHL is at http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?authtype=uid&profile=ehost&user=s5033861trial&password=trial

If you access it from offsite, please enter the following:

Username: contact library

Password: contact library

It is recommended that you watch the below tutorials before you start searching CINAHL:

EBSCO Seaarch Engine Tutorial: Introduction to EBSCOhost http://support.ebscohost.com/training/flash_videos/intro_to_ehost/intro_to_ehost.html

CINAHL Support Center http://support.ebsco.com/ for tutorials on searching CINAHL:

· Basic Searching

· Advanced Searching Techniques

· CINAHL (Combines Basic & Advanced Searching)

· Using CINAHL/MeSH Headings (looks a lot like Ovid)

When in CINAHL, there will also be a Help tab on the upper right side of the screen for additional assistance.
