  • I'm so glad I found your ebook on the web. I have been a Type 2 diabetic sufferer for many years. Thirty days after following your program, I can report the following results: Blood glucose dropped from 310 to 98. Blood pressure lowered 10 points on the top and the bottom. Cholesterol dropped 16 points. Your How To Reverse Diabetes plan is a BREAKTHROUGH and a true Blessing. Thank you for all your help. My family and I are forever grateful. ◆◆◆ https://bit.ly/2swQ6OO

  9. 9. HOW EMBASE DELIVERS VALUE ...by including literature and information resources in a timely manner ...by reading full-text to identify drugs, diseases, adverse affects, clinical trials, drug trade names etc. ...by enabling advanced search filters to drill down a comprehensive search to a relevant and manageable record set Conference proceedings Scientific Journals In Press (unpublished) Deep indexing using own taxonomy (EMTREE) Very powerful Search Environment ...by allowing users to automate searching and result management We make sure you don’t miss any biomedical literature They only close alternative is reading all the articles Good precision and recall balance Automation and documentation E-mail Alerting API Interoperability 9 9
  10. 10. BEING AS COMPREHENSIBLE AS POSSIBLE SOURCE Efforttools required TEXT MINING EMBASE SCOPUS PUBMED GOOGLE E 0% 50 % 100 % Percentage of relevant articles retrieved 10
  11. 11. WHO BENEFITS FROM USING EMBASE • Systematic reviews of the (biomedical) literature • Health Technology Assessments or rapid advisories • Comparative Effectiveness Reviews • Post-market surveillance and / or clinical evaluations for Medical Devices • Comprehensive „scanning/monitoring‟ literature for drug adverse effects, emerging public health threats, off-label drug use, efficacy, medication errors, drug-drug interactions, abuse and misuse, quality complaints, counterfeiting, inaccurate or inappropriate statements on drugs and devices in data. Common heading could be Pharmacovigilance. • If users have a more „general‟ research need – Scopus for example is a great solution. 11
  12. 12. FAQS • How current is Embase. Does it have AIP and In Process for example? • Where do conference abstracts come from? • Is all of MEDLINE in Embase? Therefore do I NOT need to search both? Check out our Embase/MEDLINE and differences between Emtree/MeSH white paper • Why do I need indexing? 12
  13. 13. Content Emtree: Biomedical thesaurus, over 60k terms 1947 1950 1974 2009 Embase: Fully indexed: Over 8,000 journals, 1974(5.5M not in MEDLINE) MEDLINE: 2,500 journals unique to Embase, mapped to Embase indexing, 1950- (including MEDLINE Classic) Embase Classic: Digitally scanned and re-indexed, 1947-1973 AIP and In Process: Indexing added, from 2009 Conference Abstracts: Indexing added, from 2009 http://www.elsevier.com/online-tools/embase/about
  14. 14. CONTENT [EMBASE/LIM] NOT [MEDLINE]/LIM MEDLINE Embase 5.5m 10m 9m 2000 3000 2500 14
  15. 15. INDEXING 1. TRANSLATE To bring the semantic richness of medical terminology within your grasp: mapping many synonyms to a single (natural language) preferred terminology 2. EXPAND To expose and summarize the information in biomedical articles beyond title and abstract: discovering in-depth data about drugs, diseases and medical devices 3. FOCUS To identify the key concepts hidden within those articles – what they are really about – providing you with a toolkit to find answers beginning with comprehensive searches 15
  16. 16. INDEXING  MEDLINE INDEXING IS MAPPED TO EMTREE TERMS SEE WHITE PAPER: COVERAGE OF MEDLINE ON EMBASE “When MeSH terms are mapped to Emtree, subheadings are mapped to Embase subheadings. Since not all MeSH subheadings have an exact Emtree equivalent, some of them generate Emtree terms rather than subheadings.” 16
  17. 17. CASE STUDY 17
  18. 18. Meet Karol, an information specialist supporting pharmacovigilence. Karol needs to ensure that she is setting up searches across all relevant sources, to track all adverse events for 3 of their products on the market. There is so much info to track and she struggles to be confident when reporting. Let‟s dive in and show her how she may quickly review all side effects for her drugs, saving her time, while being confident that she is not missing anything with Embase‟s current and unique content.
