Consultation Services

The Center for Knowledge Management (CKM)’s mission includes offering services for wide-scale information reuse in order to increase immediate and long-term institutional effectiveness.

From rapid search development to expertly filtered and synthesized information packets, our evidence services support patient care, research, education, and healthcare administration.

The Patient Informatics Consult Service (PICS), provides VUMC patients with accurate, relevant, and appropriate information in easily-understandable packets tailored to the individual's specific medical condition, disease, or genetic results.  

As part of the CKM’s focus on health literacy and learning styles, information scientists aid the medical center in communicating information to lay audiences.

CKM’S technological services focus on creating solutions to complex knowledge management problems. The CKM technical team develops in-house tools, applications, and websites to support both the work of the Center and the mission of the Medical Center at large.
