Medical information is snowballing at an enormous rate – doubling every 73 days by 2020. Attempting to keep up-to-date with this huge volume of complex, rapidly-changing information is extremely difficult. We asked medical professionals where they currently find useful content and clinical resources. Somewhat surprisingly, the poll showed that search (Google) is not the first port of call for all medical professionals, with some people choosing to go directly to their favourite websites. This is followed by searching online and then receiving content from peers. Medical associations lag behind in terms of being a ‘go-to’ source of content.
What if one app could simply tackle the problems of peer-to-peer learning…endless hours of trawling medical websites, apps and ‘Googling’ to find what you need; searching email, thumb drives and your computer for things you’ve received or downloaded; always missing out on that event or not hearing about that article?
