Elsevier Launches Nationwide ClinicalKey Experience Tour
PHILADELPHIA, October 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –
Cross-country tour showcases the latest innovations in clinical reference
Elsevier [http://www.elsevier.com ], a world-leading provider of scientific, technical
and medical information products and services, has launched a nationwide “ClinicalKey
Experience Tour [http://info.clinicalkey.com/experience/index.html ]” to promote the
importance of a reliable and fast clinical reference tool that provides better answers to
physicians’ clinical questions and thus improves patient care.
The “ClinicalKey Experience” tour is an all-day outdoor event showcasing and promoting
live demonstrations of ClinicalKey [https://www.clinicalkey.com ]. The tour will visit
hospitals and academic medical centers across the country and features a customized,
walk-in demonstration pod set up adjacent to hospitals and open to clinicians and hospital
staff. Attendees are invited to stop by the tour at any time throughout the scheduled day
for a short demo and trial of ClinicalKey, as well as refreshments. The events take place
from approximately 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The customized “ClinicalKey Experience” pod is a 20-foot transportable suite that
unfolds to include about 470 square feet of open air space, atmospheric lighting, fans,
phone chargers, Wi-Fi, and comfortable seating. It includes interactive demo stations for
physicians to test drive the product firsthand, plus giveaway items.
“Physicians are starved for time, overwhelmed with data, and have just minutes to make
decisions that are critical to patient care. A global reference tool that accurately
discovers valuable medical information, missed by other search engines is needed to better
patient care,” said Jim Donohue, Managing Director for Global Clinical Reference,
Elsevier. “This tour gives physicians, librarians and hospital administrators across the
country a hands-on opportunity to see and try out ClinicalKey’s cutting-edge technology.”
Launched in April 2012, ClinicalKey provides the most current clinically relevant
evidence-based answers, as well as expert commentary, MEDLINE abstracts and select
third-party journals. 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.
The tour launched in St. Louis, Mo., on Sept. 18 and will travel to major cities in
Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Massachusetts, New York,
Pennsylvania, Maryland, District of Columbia, Virginia, South Carolina, Florida,
Louisiana, Texas and Colorado. The last day of the tour will be Dec. 12.
