GreyLit for Hospitals
GreyLit can help hospitals make decisions better and faster, and become a leader in both research and patient care.
Most hospital departments store their grey literature such as policies, guidelines, best practices, evaluations and protocols on shared drives. Some of these important decision making documents are shared through interdisciplinary committees, a newsletter or maybe even on a specific department’s internal web page. And every so often these exciting documents are shared with hospital foundations.
GreyLit can help hospitals become leaders in research and patient care.
In addition, there are likely numerous research reports completed by staff and students that can only be found within an individual's H:drive—likely never to be found again if that person leaves the hospital.
Save time and money by accessing information that sister organizations are prepared to share.
Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way to search across all hospital departments for a specific policy or guideline? What if it was possible to peek into the library of a sister hospital to see the research they used to make a similar decision to one you are now faced with? How much time and money could be saved if you had access to information that other hospitals would be prepared to share if you asked?
While a great deal of resources are invested in research and publishing, only about 10 – 20% of information is published in traditional academic channels, while the other 80 – 90% cannot be found easily or consistently. GreyLit aims to collect up to 80 – 90% of research and information that is produced on the front lines and outside academia and provides access to it for half of what a subscription to a journal would cost
GreyLit aims to mobilize the 80-90% of research and information that is not published to academic journals.
GreyLit turns research into action months or years sooner than traditional journal publishing.
GreyLit’s mission is to make information accessible by mobilizing frontline information and research so it can be searched, shared and reviewed around the world. We turn research into action months or years sooner. Partnering with GreyLit enables hospitals to become leaders in the open access space and save time and money by accessing and sharing grey literature.
