MediFind is the first platform in the world to collect and integrate doctor and condition information from dozens of medical datasets. This allows MediFind to identify experts who are at the forefront of research and innovation for their respective field.
AMBLER, Pennsylvania – Imagine losing a loved one because you didn’t know about a possible life-saving treatment. Sadly, this happens all the time. It’s extremely difficult for highly trained doctors to stay on top of all of the latest peer reviewed studies and clinical trials results for even one disease, let alone the thousands of diseases they have to know about. In this world, patients must be their own advocates to make sure they are getting the best treatment. Many organizations are looking to democratize medical information by giving patients access to health data in a patient-friendly format in order to empower patients with the information they need to make the best decisions for their health.
As the COVID-19 Pandemic spreads around the world, there’s a lot of data to be digested, catalogued and made available to the general public. MediFind.com, the recently launched health platform for helping people living with health conditions find better and faster care, has added COVID-19 to their platform. For every condition, MediFind provides a comprehensive view of that condition, including the experts treating the condition, and the most promising recent advances to treat the condition. With hundreds of products being tested for Covid-19 and expertise growing rapidly, it is important to have a single resource for patients to make sure they are getting the best treatment if they are unfortunate to catch this new virus.
During a recent interview, a MediFind spokesperson made these comments, “MediFind has spent years developing tools to find and process every bit of medical information available, on a global scale, so they can empower all patients to take control of their own healthcare decisions and improve their length and quality of life. World-changing discoveries are happening, and with persistence, rigorous research and dedication to science we aim to bring them to patients around the globe, because when it comes to your health, nothing is more valuable than time.”
She goes on to say, “It is estimated that the world’s medical knowledge will double every 73 days. There are over 1 million research reports, presentations, and clinical trial results published every year in the medical community. Medical knowledge is advancing so rapidly today that even the experts cannot keep up with every new study, advance, or clinical trial. The reality is that even the best doctors cannot be on top of every advance in their field.”
Using cutting-edge machine learning techniques, they have trained their algorithms to sift through this mass of information and identify those findings that could help you learn about a new treatment or make a better-informed decision about which treatment option to choose.
Then, using their proprietary natural language processing algorithms and their team of medical experts, they extract the most important information and simplify the terminology so you can better understand it. The result is that you can have peace of mind knowing that you are not missing an important new treatment, new clinical trial, or new research finding that could help you get the best healthcare right now.
