Background and Technology


With the expanded use of electronic medical records, patient information, and the increased need for prior authorizations, there was suddenly less time to search for evidence based data to best inform everyday clinical decisions. General search engines, social media, and unvalidated web sites yielded needless information to sort through to find trustworthy data. It became clear that a new type of search tool would benefit physicians and researchers alike.

We brought together a team of medical and technology experts to develop a key word based search tool that relies upon the relevance, authenticity and dependability of peer-reviewed medical journals.  This team of experts, having recognized the expanded challenges to healthcare professionals, focused on creating a solution.

The result is JournalDoc, a practical platform to assist with everyday clinical decision making. 

JournalDoc uses medical experts, patented algorithms, and artificial intelligence (AI) to access and retrieve the most relevant medical information from accredited and authoritative data bases. Think of JournalDoc as AI with human oversight. We index only medical journals and trustworthy databases, providing relevant and reliable information for patient care or complex clinical management decisions. 


Using patented algorithms and leading-edge AI, our search tool creates a Master Index of information on specific topics within the study of medicine. This Master Index is an Ontology, or Thesaurus, that offers vocabulary and structure to link queries to relevant and trustworthy clinical data bases. This combination of functions allows for a structured and refined search.

JournalDoc filters out irrelevant results and false or inaccurate information to focus your search queries on evidence from reputable medical journals and clinical research databases.


When you need reliable results from peer-reviewed medical journals, and you need it quickly, turn to JournalDoc to simplify your search.
