Health is wealth, and so it becomes a serious matter of concern when fact sheets show how uncountable diagnostic errors, inappropriate treatment and overdose of medicines block the flow of good patient care in the healthcare industry. KNOWMED enables doctors to diagnose and treat a patient's condition much more accurately than through trials and errors. This real-time web-based platform renders instant help in emergency medicine, but there are other advantages as well, such as answering diversified health queries of medical students, patients and even the general public. The queries can range from basic first aid information to long term management and treatment of chronic diseases.
KNOWMED displays an organized body of research-based medical information with inputs from experts in the medical field. It can also be linked with MedSense: The Hospital Information System to be accessible to doctors in OPD, IPD and emergencies as well, providing them with reference-ready information to deal with their patients in an efficient way. The interface displays various search categories with separate headings to denote the kind of medical queries it would deal with. These categories are as follows.
