  • The foundational element of Smart Content is a medical taxonomy that is informed by user needs and, in this case, clinical information . Once we had determined what elements our taxonomy should include, we turned to Healthline, a company we were lucky enough to have an investment stake in, that had developed robust Smart Content capabilities to aid its consumer health business, and we endeavored to work with them, to create a Smart Content solution that was specific to a clinician’s needs.

  • Workflow alignmentThe product needed to deliver more relevant results thanconventional clinical search engines and significantly reduce thetime users spend searching. It had to be Updated daily with pre-press articles, book updates and other breaking content. 5
  • Students to surgeons, specialistsand beyond! Ms. S Liu. Medical student • Needs learning resources in multiple formats (books, videos etc.) • Has a broad subject requirement; not deep into single areas • Likes to choose between synoptic and full content Dr. R. Nathan. Senior Resident – Surgery • “Mechanics” driven by visual, procedural content • Requires pre- and post- procedural care resources • Well-defined, fairly narrow information requirements Dr. J. Taylor. Cardiology fellow • Broader information needs: diagnostic, treatment, general medicine • Influenced by “experts” • Drug information needs 6 6
  • Comprehensive & TrustedPlus: • Selected third-party journals and content sources • Guideline information (2,000) • Elsevier and third-party published patient education materials (15,000) • Fully indexed MEDLINE (20,000,000) • Fully indexed clinical trials (120,828 trials with locations in 178 countries) 7

  • Superior search technologyEMMeT – Elsevier‟s Merged Medical Taxonomy1. Partnered with „Healthline‟ to obtain a proven taxonomy (>10 years of development)2. Based on globally recognised Unified Medical Language System (UMLS) – from US national library of medicine3. Includes MeSH, Snomed-CT, RxNorm & ICD-9By indexing all of our content with EMMeT; searches arefaster and more accurate than ever before! 11

  • Smart content• Smart Content adds layer of meaning – telling computers and humans how information and content relates to one another.• So unlike keyword searches, you will use the power of the synonyms, core concepts, ontological relationships etc. to enrich your search experience – versus the specific phrase you searched under. 14
  • The word on the street• Its already thinking for the clinician, essentially asking if he wants more information on specific aspects of patient care.• UpToDates strength is the fact that its expert authors look at all the research in the journals and then synthesize it into focused reviews that sum up the most useful approach to diagnosis and treatment. ClinicalKey, on the other hand, offers the more comprehensive approach by providing a mountain of journal articles and textbook chapters that the end user can choose from.• One advantage ClinicalKey offers that impressed me is its Smart Content, an exhaustive collection of medical taxonomy tags that provides end users with more than the traditional predictive search capability seen in UpToDate.• ClinicalKey also has better filtering tools. Typing the term hyperthyroidism in UpToDate, Im given the option of filtering the topic results in only four ways. I can see content on adults, children, patient--which includes patient education material--and graphics. Elsevier offers far more options.*http://www.informationweek.com/news/healthcare/clinical-systems/232600864 15
