Our Mission
Our goal at SearchMedica is to improve the practice of medicine by allowing physicians and medical practitioners to discover the most relevant, authoritative, and timely clinical information on the Internet and to find it quickly and easily.

Specifically, we aim to:

answer your clinical question
offer additional medically-relevant information and
satisfy your curiosity
while always responding to your needs and interests.

We work continuously to improve the user experience on SearchMedica, and highly value all comments and criticisms intended to help us in that objective.

SearchMedica was created to serve the needs of medical professionals, not the general public. The information provided on SearchMedica is designed to support, not replace, the relationship that exists between patients and their physicians.

What We Do
SearchMedica uses proprietary technology to find and index documents on the Internet. But unlike other popular search engines, we deliver only the most clinically reputable content intended for practicing medical clinicians.

With guidance from our advisory board of specialty physicians and our staff editors, SearchMedica scans well-known, credible journals, systematic reviews, and evidence-based articles that are written and edited for clinicians practicing in primary care and all major specialties. Using similar expertise, SearchMedica also selects and scans patient-directed websites, online CME courses, and government databases of clinical trials and practice guidelines.

Different SearchMedica websites delivering locally relevant content operate in the United Kingdom, France, and Spain. Others are under development.

How We Do It
SearchMedica's index contains well over 1,000 websites organized into numerous therapeutic categories, which appear as links across the top of the screen. Initial searches from the SearchMedica home page span all of medicine. Searches may also be refined by clicking one of the therapeutic category links to narrow results to that area.

SearchMedica also allows users to refine results by content category such as Research/Reviews, Practical Articles and News, Patient Education Materials, and Practice Guidelines. For more information on how this works, please see our Help page.

The SearchMedica technology ranks results based on relevance as determined by its proprietary search algorithm. Unique among search engines, SearchMedica uses publication date to influence relevance ranking, so that more recently published documents appear at the top of the results.

SearchMedica does not publish any of the medical information it delivers. All we do is allow you to find the most authoritative clinical information available on the Web. No preference is given to any kind of content in our searches, other than the factors mentioned above: clinical authority, relevance, and publication date.

How We Get Paid
Access to SearchMedica is free of charge and is not restricted in any way.

However, some publishers charge a fee to provide some of the content they offer on the Internet. Therefore at times SearchMedica users may be asked to pay an online fee to the publisher before reading a document. This fee goes to the content provider, not to SearchMedica.

SearchMedica is supported by advertisements and sponsorships. Advertisements appear in the right column of the results page. (Advertisers have no influence whatever on our search results, and SearchMedica does not include advertiser websites among the scanned content.)

We ask that you support SearchMedica by using the site and clicking on ads when appropriate. Your voluntary registration and feedback also support SearchMedica, helping ensure that we continue to provide a free search experience. Registration enables you to influence the development of SearchMedica as an online resource and receive tips on how to use SearchMedica more effectively. You may join SearchMedica here.

Who We Are
SearchMedica is run by UBM Medica, part of United Business Media. Other divisions of UBM Medica produce some of the best-read clinical publications in the United States, including Consultant, Psychiatric Times, and Oncology. Find out more about UBM Medica at http://www.ubmmedica.com.

Content found by SearchMedica is evaluated by our advisory board of nationally recognized medical specialists, who also provide guidance about matters relevant to the user experience.

Strategic Alliances
At SearchMedica, we are interested in pursuing mutually beneficial collaborations with other websites that create or manage reputable content for medical practitioners. Parties interested in exploring an alliance with SearchMedica are encouraged to contact us directly.
