DataMed is a proof-of-concept project that improves upon simple keyword search for medical documents. To search, simply start typing a medical concept of interest into the search box.

In order to achieve our results, we normalized case presentation data found in published case studies from the Journal of Medical Case Reports. This allows a user searching for "heart attack", "myocardial infarction", and "MI" to all get the same results. In addition, we have clustered the document concepts by category and offered these as further concepts to enhance your search.
