Introducing the INSIGHTS Reading Zones

The New Personalized Medical INSIGHTS

A while ago we at Medical INSIGHTS noticed that what our users wanted was personalized knowledge recommendations. The introduction of our new Reading Zones marks the beginning of our transition to a personalized knowledge platform.

Why we are going personalized

Our goal has always been to provide Health Care Professionals with the best platform to discuss and interact with medical knowledge, and it has become more and more clear that personalization is the best way to do that. By providing personalized curated content, we also satisfy a common request from our users, who often state that there is simply too much information to discover manually.

A new way to discover

Going hand in hand with the Reading Zones are the new personalized Reading Digests that we began sending a few weeks ago. These digests are a more practical way for users to discover new knowledge. Now, instead of having to search manually, we’ll send you relevant, quality assured knowledge that fits your profile.

If you haven’t done so already, make sure to open the apps, or log-in to the new Reading Zones to select your interests. Doing so will help us ensure that you only receive the information that you deem important.

What’s next for INSIGHTS

Soon, we’ll also be launching the new INSIGHTS apps, which have been rebuilt with personalization and interaction in mind. We’ll provide a little bit more info on that once we get closer to release. For now, we hope that you enjoy the new personalized Digests and Reading Zones.

Log-in to the reading zones or download the apps to get started. We’d love your feedback, so if you have any thoughts don’t hesitate to contact us.

INSIGHTS CMF is now Universal

All_devicesCMF Knowledge On All Platforms

Recently, we launched INSIGHTS Cranio-Maxillofacial on the iPhone, which marked the final step in our drive to be present on all major mobile platforms. With this release, we now have dedicated apps on iPad, iPhone, and Android.

One Platform, One Experience

Android

Our Android version

The next few months will bring some major developments to the INSIGHTS platforms and it’s critical for us to be able to ensure that all users, no matter the device, will be able to enjoy them. Being universal was the most important step in realizing that goal, now that that’s done we can begin focussing on implementing the larger developments.

What’s On the Horizon

Building the iPhone version also let us work on a few things we’ve been planning on introducing to the INSIGHTS platform for a while. First up is personalization, which is a feature that will become the core of all the INSIGHTS platforms in the months to come. Beginning, though, we’re starting with a personalized e-mail digest that will deliver cutting edge developments in knowledge within the areas you care about. We built the personalization engine using machine learning and some other nifty algorithms that will only get smarter over time.

INSIGHTS Cranio-maxillofacial: Introducing Personalization and an Android Version

Android_Banner

After successfully launching medical content-centric platforms on iPad for Cranio-Maxillofacial, Orthopedic and Veterinary Surgeons, Medical Insights AG is proud to announce the INSIGHTS platform expansion onto Android. Beginning with INSIGHTS Cranio-Maxillofacial, the new Android App marks the beginning of Medical Insights’ push to be present on every platform, to ensure surgeons a personalized experience wherever they choose to consume digital medical knowledge.

In line with this strategy, the Android app was designed from the ground up to be fully responsive. Being responsive allows us to guarantee our users an optimal user experience no matter the device size that they prefer using.

The launch of the Android app also coincides with the launch of another of our new services. Through constant evaluation of our user preferences and market needs, we have determined that a core functionality of the INSIGHTS experience going forward will be personalization. Beginning with personalized digests, user defined interests will be paired with intelligent algorithms and impact factor analysis to provide only the most relevant content to our users. With more medical articles being published than ever before we can ensure that surgeons are kept up to date with the developments that matter to them.

Medical Insights is a platform that is aiming to redefine the way HCP’s interact and consume with medical knowledge. Platform expansion and personalization are the first steps in a strategy that will bring value to all key parties in the medical knowledge landscape.

Healio Blog: 2014 marked release of notable orthopedic app releases, improvements

In our opinion, 2014 marked a turning point in the development of orthopedic-focused mobile apps from experimental to a well-established avenue for reaching patients and surgeons. As such, we witnessed the development and release of high quality, high value apps that have the potential to significantly impact and enhance the orthopedic experience as a patient, trainee or surgeon. This blog will review some of the most notable app releases and improvements from 2014.

Last year, we reviewed Insights Orthopedics, a dynamic magazine and content aggregator for orthopedic surgeons. This year, Insights Orthopedics released v2.0, which included significant enhancement and improvements in the product. In our previous review, we highlighted the appealing user interface and expansive search capabilities. All of these features and benefits remain; however, the app now has an improved much smoother user interface and includes the ability to login with an institutional license at thousands of universities worldwide. This now expands the app’s capabilities to provide full-content access to anyone affiliated with a university library. In addition, there is a new section titled “leading journals” to quickly obtain the most relevant literature in one place. The “journal clubs” section has expanded to include monthly selection from prominent university training programs. We encourage readers to download Insights Orthopedics for literature searches and reading from an iPad.
