NorthBay Healthcare Fills Gap with Medical Research & Library Service from Hilton Publishing

HPC Library Management Service

HPC deployed their Medical Research & Library Service to help NorthBay Healthcare review its library research subscriptions, and ensure they had the right combination of resources to meet the needs of its staff, at the lowest cost.  It's a helpful tool for any healthcare provider, because this service can be established quickly to conduct ongoing research, in the rapidly changing areas of the COVID-19 pandemic and all related topics.  To find out more, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

HPC stepped in on short notice to assist us with reviewing our library subscriptions prior to the renewal deadlines.  Our assigned HPC librarian identified a subscription where our pricing appeared high.  She negotiated a price reduction on our behalf of nearly 50% versus what we were paying. 

Going forward, our healthcare system will also be utilizing the Library Services from HPC to provide evidence based literature needed by our clinical teams.  This will free up our clinicians from this time consuming responsibility, so we can focus on our patients.  I have already heard back from one of our program managers who told me that our assigned HPC librarian helped save him hours of literature search time to find evidence for a clinical question he had.  The HPC librarian was able to retrieve 10 articles within only 2 days on a topic that he thought there wasn’t a lot of evidence available.

We have not had a medical librarian in our organization for a few years and it was a gap that we have been wanting to fill.  I have been so happy and grateful for their services!
