And the winners of the first ever EM Blog Incubator competition are...
Dr. Jim Campagna (Emergency physician at St Joseph's Hospital Health Center in Syracuse, NY) and Dr. Timothy Peck (Beth Israel Deaconess EM resident in Boston, MA)
Both submitted really fascinating concepts for their blogs. I'm really looking forward to reading each of their 3-part introductory series in the upcoming weeks, as they prepare to launch their own blogs.
Dr. Jim Campagna
Jim plans to focus on the all-things-technology in Emergency Medicine. This includes reviewing and aggregating lists of medical apps and hardware which are relevant to the specialty. Furthermore, he will provide up-to-date literature reviews of other technologies, such as electronic medical records and computer physician order entry, and their impact on clinical practice.
Dr. Timothy Peck
Tim isn't a newcomer to the blogging world. He has a fantastic blog "Teach, MD: Rethinking medical education" since July 2011. On his new blog, Web 2.0 Changed My Management, will feature examples of how Web 2.0 influenced the management of specific patient encounters. Also guests will be allowed to contribute mini-case presentations where they will report how a Web 2.0 activity changed how they managed a patient.
I can't wait to see what Jim and Tim come up with!
