This past February, Medgadget spoke with Eric Kowalchyk, Co-Founder of Case, a mobile and web app to help scientists, clinicians, and researchers stay up-to-date on journal articles and publications in their areas of interest. Since the conversation, Case added a number of features and functionalities bolstering its offering.
In May, Case added alerts that notify users when the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approves new therapies and devices. Alerts are triggered based on the user’s area of focus.
In June, users gained more control over their Home feed with the ability to customize filters that include or exclude specific journals and research areas. That same month, Case also announced a partnership to create scientific videos with with PhysiatryNow, a research and educational content organization focused on rehabilitation medicine as well as neurological and musculoskeletal conditions. “Case represents a unique and innovative way to reach, educate and engage with physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R) physicians across regions,” said PhysiatryNow Founder and Co-Director Dr. Jim Eubanks.
Here’s the partnership’s first video collaboration:
In July, Case added multilingual options for over 100 languages using Google’s translation tools. In the same vein as PhysiatryNow, Case and the United States Bone and Joint Initiative (USBJI) also aligned to develop and publish scientific videos as part of USBJI’s Musculoskeletal Education for Primary Care Providers Project (MSK-Ed). “Case leverages artificial intelligence in an innovative way to educate and enable physicians to prevent, diagnose, directly manage, and appropriately refer musculoskeletal disorders and injuries,” commented MSK-Ed Steering Committee Chair Bruce Browner.
Most recently, in August, Case integrated with the NIH’s MeSH medical terminology database to expand the number of research areas users can follow on their feed from approximately 8,000, reported in February, to 274,482 unique topics. Finally, just this week, Case added more convenience for on-the-go users with the option to listen to audio abstracts in 19 different languages.
