Staying up-to-date with the literature is one of the most important facets of a medical organization’s offerings. Without knowing where the current gaps in scientific knowledge are, your members will be left in the dark on the latest findings in the medical community. But as medical information exponentially increases, it has become increasingly challenging to keep up with the changing landscape.
That’s why it’s important that healthcare organizations move toward an automated scientific literature monitoring process. In this article, we’ll explore the current state of scientific literature monitoring, hurdles your organization is currently facing to keep up, and how Juisci Workspace can help streamline the process.
Global literature screening is an activity that needs to be performed regularly in large biomedical databases that include the majority of scientific and medical journals. This includes articles written in any language, country, and time frame.
Organizations, such as biotech companies, medical associations (e.g. American Hospital Association, American College of Cardiology), clinics, and hospitals are all currently monitoring scientific literature on a daily basis.
Currently, the scientific literature monitoring process is time-consuming and costly. Many organizations don’t have a set process for scientific literature monitoring and is usually performed manually. This means hours of time and extensive manpower.
As we previously mentioned, the current state of scientific literature monitoring generates many obstacles. It is a complex, time-consuming, and costly process for your organization when performed manually. It is also a necessary process for clinical trials at biotech companies, knowledge dissemination for medical associations, and continuing medical education for clinics and hospitals.
To stay compliant with different regulatory requirements worldwide, it is imperative that healthcare organizations perform global biomedical literature screening to identify information that could impact patient health and safety.
Scientific literature monitoring is also crucial to detect new or emerging information in your field. In order to keep current, systematic literature reviews of widely used reference databases (e.g., Medline) should be performed no less frequently than once a week.
Performing frequent systematic reviews can be difficult for many organizations to keep up with. According to a study conducted by The American Critical and Climatological Association, it was estimated that in 1950, medical knowledge doubled every 50 years; in 1980, every 7 years; in 2010, every 3.5 years. Since 2020, medical knowledge has doubled every 73 days.
The scientific research and literature monitoring process established decades ago is no longer capable of handling the exponential growth of medical information that needs to be scanned. That’s why the manual review process is in need of a complete overhaul.
