Irving, TX (PRWEB) October 14, 2010
Educus (http://www.educus.com ) today announced the launch of their new medical search engine capable of executing fast, relevant searches on NLM Medline (PubMed) journals. Educus is brought to you by the same creative team behind USMLEWorld, LLC (http://www.usmleworld.com ).
“For years it has been quite difficult to access evidence-based medical information through existing resources. They lack needed features to retrieve information quickly and accurately, something physicians and researchers depend on. We designed Educus to have an easy-to-use interface that allows medical professionals to quickly find what they’re looking for,” explains Dr. Chandra Pemmasani, practicing physician and Educus CEO.
The Educus team of physicians and IT professionals worked over the past three years to identify the ideal medical search engine. This has resulted in an exceptional web application that is intended to significantly affect the medical community. “We designed our medical search engine to be a step-up from other search engines,” says Pemmasani.
Educus’ most important feature is that it classifies search results based on three relevancy categories: high, medium, and low. Based on Educus’ proprietary search algorithms, high relevancy results are most likely what a user was searching for, and it is the default search setting. If a search doesn’t return any high relevancy results, Educus will automatically shift to the next highest relevancy category.
The search engine also automatically includes common keyword variations in every search, including keyword plurals, synonyms, related keywords, and medical abbreviations. This ensures search results are much more consistent and do not vary significantly due to a small change in search terms – another important feature that other search engines currently lack.
Educus also provides other advanced features such as preferences, saving search results, and creating search agents for automated emailing of journals.
Use of Educus search for medical journals is currently free. Access to advanced features does require a quick, free registration on the website.
Educus.com is an online resource designed for physicians and allied health care professionals. The goal of Educus is to facilitate everyday clinical practice by delivering innovative tools and efficient, evidence-based medical content.
