There may be librarians working for these organizations. I think it's a dynamite combination -- health care professionals and librarians working together to get information for consumers. Of course, minus the librarians, it's not as effective.

I wondered if they had mentioned medical libraries. As you say, the mention was brief and made it sound like the the information is inaccessible to the public. They also make it sound like a new service. There have been medical research services for a long time (i.e. http://www.thehealthresource.com --note I am not endorsing this one) though not necessarily staffed by a physician.

Nothing was mentioned about free electronic resources. Nothing was mentioned about free medical library resources. It sounded like all medical information was locked down and only available to those with special access. I was very upset that NBC would essentially do an infomercial for this company.
