Question: What is the process of developing a clinical information tool to be embedded in the electronic health record of a very large and diverse academic medical center? &Setting: The development took place at the University of Pittsburgh Health Sciences Library System. &Method: The clinical information tool developed is a search box with subject tabs to provide quick access to designated full-text information resources. Each subject tab offers a federated search of a different pool of resources. Search results are organized ''on the fly'' into meaningful categories using clustering technology and are directly accessible from the results page. &Results: After more than a year of discussion and planning, a clinical information tool was embedded in the academic medical center's electronic health record. &Conclusion: The library successfully developed a clinical information tool, called Clinical-e, for use at the point of care. Future development will refine the tool and evaluate its impact and effectiveness.
