SearchMedica

SearchMedica is a specialized medical search engine that connects medical professionals with well-known, credible journals, peer-reviewed research, and evidence-based articles written for practicing healthcare professionals.

SearchMedica is useful for medical professionals seeking the latest meeting abstracts or a quick way to pinpoint topics contained in a wide range of meeting abstracts. In addition to ranking search results according to relevance, SearchMedica also organizes results into categories such as practical articles and news, research reviews and editorials, evidence-based articles and meta-analyses, practice guidelines, clinical trials for patients, continuing medical education, and alternative-complementary medicine.

SearchMedica offers medical professionals:
  1. A refined search engine with comprehensive searchable article indexes
  2. Results that include PubMed’s Medline, but without results related to animal studies or research not relevant to practice
  3. Unbiased, objective results by relevance, not popularity like consumer-targeted search engines
  4. Results displayed by key categories, for quick identification of the resources most closely matching information needs
