NAPLES, Fla., Sept. 04, 2018 — HealthLynked Corp. (OTCQB: HLYK) today announced that it has created a unique database of over 15,000 medical publications and research articles that it plans to use for its health analytics Artificial Intelligence “AI” service.
Information is the driver of all medical decisions and having a robust library of medical information and continually updating this library ensures physicians and members can find the most current and relevant information regarding healthcare decisions.
The archive uses Elasticsearch, which can be used to search a wide range of documents. It provides a scalable search, has near real-time search capabilities, and supports multi-tenancy. Elasticsearch operates in a distributed environment, which means that indices can be divided into shards (containers) and each shard can have zero or more replicas. Each node (single server) hosts one or more shards, and acts as a coordinator to delegate operations to the correct shard(s). Related data is often stored in the same index, which consists of one or more primary shards, and zero or more replica shards.
In addition to our ongoing AI development, the ever-expanding data archive the company has created already allows for advanced search functions for users to search this archive by title, key words, partial work matches, author and date of publication.
Dr. Michael Dent, CEO of HealthLynked, stated, “Medical research and treatments continually evolve and having the latest medical information is important to ensure that patients receive the best care possible. Patients use the internet to routinely search for health-related issues. Online searches typically return of wide range of results from sources that have poor reliability, outdated results and often misinformation. Having a reliable resource for medical information is important and as we continue to build our database we will be able to provide more relevant search results that are specific and tailored to each of our member’s medical history.”
“Our Physician members can also curate this data to their areas of specific interest, keeping them informed on the latest medical treatments and research.”
