Elsevier Launches ClinicalKey for Individual Clinicians, Providing Comprehensive Content for 41 Specialties
Date:9/19/2012

PHILADELPHIA, September 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Powered by Elsevier's Smart Content, individual subscriptions of ClinicalKey offer targeted answers quickly, without slowing physician workflow

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced the availability of a new version of ClinicalKey designed for individual clinicians.  ClinicalKey, Elsevier's clinical insight engine, now provides quick access to highly targeted content for physicians in 41 specialties, drawing on evidence-based information from more than 900 textbooks and 500 medical journals.  

Launched in April for institutions, ClinicalKey provides the most current clinically relevant evidence-based answers, as well as expert commentary, MEDLINE abstracts and select third-party journals.

"Physicians want the most accurate answers to their clinical questions in a very short amount of time," said Donne M. Thomas-Patterson, M.D., family practice, Einstein Healthcare Network and member of ClinicalKey's editorial advisory board.  "By providing a solution that gives them back some of that valuable time and does not disrupt their workflow, we're helping physicians be more effective and efficient in delivering patient care."

The new, individual version of ClinicalKey offers specialized content from some of Elsevier's most popular journals, including The Lancet, Gastroenterology, Journal of the American College of Cardiology, Mayo Clinic Proceedings; as well as Elsevier-published books, including Braunwald's Heart Disease, Campbell's Operative Orthopaedics, and Mandell, Douglas and Bennett's Principles and Practice of Infectious Disease, among others.

ClinicalKey provides faster, smarter access to the relevant online clinical answers physicians seek. After conducting market research with more than 2,000 physicians, Elsevier designed ClinicalKey to meet the three key search requirements those physicians demanded:

  • Comprehensive - ClinicalKey includes answers based on the largest collection of clinical resources in one place online, representing every medical and surgical specialty and information at all levels, from expert opinion to primary data. Resources include textbooks, journals, monographs, videos and images.
  • Trusted - ClinicalKey provides access to the latest peer-reviewed and evidence-based information available from Elsevier, the world's leading provider of science and health information.
  • Fast - With its unique technology, ClinicalKey's speed-to-answer is unmatched, providing more relevant answers to clinical questions than those provided by any other conventional clinical search engine.

Information on ClinicalKey is also easily shared, helping colleagues and care teams make the best decisions for patients.  For example, the built-in presentation maker allows physicians to dynamically communicate the latest medical and surgical information to colleagues and care teams.  Users can easily create a PowerPoint embedded with the text or images they want to share.  

Smart Content Powers Smarter Searches

ClinicalKey is powered by Elsevier's Smart Content, tagged with EMMeT (Elsevier Merged Medical Taxonomy), which enables ClinicalKey to understand clinical terms and thus discover medical content that is the most relevant, plus find related content that would be missed by other search engines.  Elsevier's Smart Content has been designed to understand the vast number of relationships between clinical concepts. By organizing these relationships in a hierarchical manner, it guarantees that ClinicalKey provides specific, targeted results to physicians' questions.

Smart Content allows clinicians to filter search results by clinically meaningful subcategories (content type, specialty, and by relevant clinical categories like treatment and diagnosis). Specialty-specific tools enable physicians to quickly go from topic overview to in-depth specialty information to meet clinical challenges.

"By leveraging Smart Content and structural elements designed specifically to use ClinicalKey within the physician workflow, we can offer a product that is unmatched in the industry and a game-changer for physicians who need the best answers quickly," said Jim Donohue, Elsevier's Managing Director, Global Clinical Reference. "Access to this amount of specialty information will help physicians quickly get the answers they seek to ultimately deliver better patient outcomes."
