Analytics firm Elsevier has teamed up with non-profit phactMI to develop a new solution for providing scientifically accurate information to healthcare professionals.

The deal will leverage Elsevier’s Entellect life sciences platform to create a semantic search portal.

Scheduled to launch in the fourth quarter of this year, the new solution will facilitate rapid access to up-to-date, approved medical documentation from 30 pharmaceutical manufacturers.

It will additionally include related data from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), including information on standard product labels.

phactMI CEO Patrick Reilly said: “Our mission is to provide healthcare professionals with the most accurate, unbiased and relevant information possible, to ensure the safe, appropriate use of these products and improve overall patient care.

“Digital transformation is changing healthcare at an unprecedented pace and opening up new paths to better patient care through data.”

“Healthcare professionals need to have immediate access to the right information, at the right time, to make the right decision regarding their patients’ care. There’s an urgent need for easy-to-access, reliable information, that is provided in an easy-to-navigate format.”

Users will be able to leverage the semantic search functionality of the new solution to search for relevant medical information. The solution is expected to eliminate the need for referring different sources.

Elsevier Professional Services vice-president Tim Hoctor said: “Digital transformation is changing healthcare at an unprecedented pace and opening up new paths to better patient care through data. However, if doctors are going to rely on that data, they have to know they can trust it.

“We designed Entellect to be a safe and trustworthy platform, and by building the phactMI search application on top, users will be able to get quick answers to their queries, as well as find contact information for manufacturer medical information departments.”

Entellect captures scientific and medical data from a variety of sources such as laboratory information management systems and archives.

The platform organises and re-formats the gathered information into a consistent and normalised format.
