Our friend Alexander Tolmachev wrote a thoughtful PM360 article on how Medical Affairs professionals can stay up-to-date with medical research. An excerpt: 

Interestingly, Case uses Google’s machine learning algorithms to personalize my digest over time. Case also takes into account which articles I’ve viewed, saved, or shared, as well as feedback from other users, to bring me the most impactful research...

06/24/16:  Introducing Case, a smart mobile app for researchers

Smart software will decide based on open access journals which papers will be of most interest to a particular reader. Such a system…would ease the burden of information overload for individual physicians.
— Dr. Joseph Loscalzo, editor-in-chief, the American Heart Association's Circulation

Last year, I met a urologic cancer surgeon who had treated my father at UCSF Medical Center in San Francisco. The surgeon was sharp, compassionate and had been my father's favorite healthcare provider. To protect her privacy, let's call her Dr. Grey.

Dr. Grey's schedule was overbooked with surgery, patient consultations and tumor boards. In between meetings, she checked her iPhone to respond to emails, texts and calls. If she had a few minutes, she also reviewed the latest research in urologic oncology. As a teaching physician, she cared deeply about leading-edge research and subscribed to over ten journals including Cancer and the Journal of Clinical Oncology.

With so many journals, it was challenging to find and share essential articles. Dr. Grey explained:

"Now I receive emails from the Journal of Clinical Oncology, JAMA and others and have to visit many different sites for important research. I'd love to have this information condensed into one mobile app to save time."

To address this unmet need, we're developing Case, a smart mobile app for medical researchers. Case collects the latest research in your specialty and builds a personalized journal for you. You can also easily share articles with your colleagues, similar to a virtual journal club.

Dr. Grey continued:

"As an idea, it would be nice to see which articles my colleagues are reading and sharing with others. This way, I'm less likely to miss important research findings."

To build Case, we've developed integrations with the NIH's PubMed to search and classify papers across 81 specialties and over 7,000 topics. We're also leveraging machine learning and predictive technologies to evaluate the most-valuable articles based on author, number of views and number of shares. As a result, Case will discover relevant articles for you, so you never miss important research findings.

Lastly, Dr. Grey suggested:

"As a teaching physician, I'd like to share significant research articles with my residents, so they know what's important to learn."

We're developing the ability to share articles with your peers directly from Case, as opposed to email or texts. We'll also build authorizations so your peers can access paid research from their existing subscriptions. As a result, Case will enable meaningful discussions for you and your colleagues.

We're glad to announce that Dr. Grey has joined our beta program for early access to Case. While Case remains in development, you're welcome to join as well. If you'd like to preview Case, just send us a note.


Best wishes,

Avikk, Eric, Ryan, Ricardo and the Case team
