Patient Education Material Database

  • 1.  Patient Education Material Database

    Hello, all!

    Question:  Are there still healthcare facilities out there that do not subscribe to a patient-education material database (i.e., Krames, Ovid, Mosby, Ebsco, HealthWise, LibGuides, etc.) but rely on free educational materials from the Internet for their patient education?
    I believed after Meaningful Use and the HITECH Act,  facilities moved towards partnerships with established, evidence-based, scholarly databases to increase quality measures, or am I wrong?  
    Even smaller institutions, I thought, would have a subscription by now!

    Working on a project, any input would be great!
