Equitable access to research: Ovid Discovery AI

Combining AI-driven precision, a unified knowledge hub, and actionable insights, Ovid® Discovery AI helps institutions tackle information overload and accessibility challenges. This ensures that groundbreaking research and healthcare solutions are always within reach.

Healthcare and academic institutions face a unique challenge: providing equitable access to their staff and students, with the dual pressures of time and precision. Ensuring workflows start with quick and easy access to research, to ultimately transform findings into actionable insights, is crucial. This requires a balance of a wide range of resources, intuitive and advanced search capability, and the last and overlooked, a centralized foundation.

Enter Ovid Discovery AI: more than just another tool, it's a key resource for institutions aiming to balance efficiency and effectiveness. The discovery service enables innovation, offering essential features that modernize education and research, and provides equitable access to research across organizations.

Understanding the core challenges

Before we can fix, we must understand.

Healthcare and academic institutions are dynamic ecosystems driven by ongoing research and innovation. However, outdated infrastructure often hinders this progress. For clinicians, researchers, and scholars, these challenges are real barriers to fulfilling their missions. Solutions like Ovid Discovery AI provide the advanced tools needed to overcome these obstacles and speed up progress. By addressing these key issues, we create a future where innovation thrives and missions are carried out effectively and efficiently.

1) The silo problem

Imagine a modern hospital with thousands of articles, guidelines, and clinical tools available. However, each resource is isolated, necessitating difficult and time-consuming navigation to access them. This slow process not only wastes time but also hinders potential medical breakthroughs.

2) Time is of the essence

In healthcare, saving even a second can mean saving a life or advancing an important study. However, professionals often face complex systems that waste valuable time, leaving them overwhelmed with information and without effective tools to navigate it.

3) Unconscious inefficiencies

Researchers often deal with fragmented sources, leading to inefficiencies that disrupt timelines and increase the risk of missed opportunities. This ongoing challenge requires attention to maintain effective practices.
