VisualMed stemmed from a simple concept:

Medical providers need an efficient and reliable way to access and review the scientific literature to help make medical decisions in real time. While rounding on inpatients, I often heard colleagues mention clinical trials and large-scale studies they had recently read, and we used them to help guide patient care. As busy residents who are always pressed for time during our inpatient rotations, we often read only the abstract and discussion sections of large articles to glean the study’s essential information. Although we may save time, we also risk missing important information.

This frustration led to the concept of VisualMed – a visually appealing representation of the major points of clinical studies that can provide a resource for practitioners with limited time to review scientific articles. Visual abstracting is a relatively new idea, though multiple journals are now using them to disseminate more knowledge through social media. VisualMed is all about effective presentation of medical literature in an entertaining form.
