OpenMD’s approach increases the visibility of medical information from reputable sources; information that can often be lost in a muddle of commercial results and user-generated content.
Subscription paywalls are commonplace in professional medical reference. We recognize that unexpectedly running into those walls can be a headache. So OpenMD‘s search prioritizes freely-accessible content whenever available.
Site functionality remains limited while in beta but we plan to add many exciting new features in the coming months that will benefit both consumers and healthcare professionals.
Based in New York City, OpenMD.com is a collaborative effort involving developers and medical professionals from around the world. We hope that this free service is helpful to you in your research.
