PITTSBURGH, Nov. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Providing a powerful new level of social and personalized search for medical website OnMedica, Vivisimo (vivisimo.com), a leader in enterprise search, is helping the leading UK medical website expand its offerings to more than 30,000 registered users.

OnMedica (onmedica.com) provides high-quality online information, learning, and commercial services to clinicians, including physicians and other healthcare professionals. OnMedica currently provides a basic site search, but wanted to expand the package of premium information services it offers to healthcare professionals.

OnMedica turned to Vivisimo and the flexibility of Vivisimo's Velocity Search Platform(TM) to provide users with fast, thorough and easily navigable search of leading peer-reviewed journals and additional news sites - indexing or federating sources as required. The result is Dr Socrates (drsocrates.com) which takes medical search to a new level. Velocity's leading capability for such hybrid searches provides Dr Socrates with a major competitive advantage. Velocity also enables Dr Socrates to offer personalized search results weighted towards healthcare roles, medical specializations or professional interests for users who register their medical interests.

In addition, OnMedica is taking advantage of Velocity's leading social search features to offer registered users the opportunity to collaborate with colleagues by tagging, ranking, annotating and sharing search results. The social markers are added to the search index as metadata, increasing the value of future searches where each user contributes their individual intelligence and insight to enhance and refine search results for everyone.

"When we were looking for an information-delivery capability, Vivisimo stood out as the enterprise search company best suited with the technology and experience to deliver what we needed," said Dr. Kamran Abbasi, CEO of Onmedica. "Coupled with Vivisimo's skilled service, OnMedica now provides doctors and other healthcare professionals with valuable new information delivered in a user-friendly interface."

To speed research time for busy healthcare workers, Velocity also enables search results to be displayed with bibliographic information - if available - including title, author, journal, summary, citations and date, and all relevant social search markers.

"Visionary companies such as OnMedica are increasingly taking advantage of Vivisimo's industry-leading conceptual enterprise search and social search technologies to deliver customized solutions for their customers," said Raul Valdes-Perez, CEO of Vivisimo. "The future of enterprise search will see more such projects to harness the collective power of people's and organizations' intelligence to drive collaboration and innovation deeper into our daily lives."
