Patients need access to consumer health information in order to improve their health and well-being. Rural patients, by nature of their geographic location, have limited access to such information. A partnership has been formed between non-profit public health organizations, a health sciences library, a tertiary care medical center, a medical informatics laboratory, a state library system, and the citizens of Iowa. The purpose of the partnership is to create, organize and distribute a digital medical library of multimedia consumer health information on the Internet in order to improve rural patient access to consumer health information
