Why did we build 'Read by QxMD'?

Health care professionals need to stay up to date on the latest medical research and topic reviews to provide optimal care. Unfortunately, the process of content discovery is broken with research artificially compartmentalized by publishers and hidden behind countless institutional pay walls.

At QxMD, we believe that knowledge translation– the process by which new knowledge is incorporated into clinical practice – is an important and unsolved challenge for our health care system. We hope that ‘Read by QxMD’ will be a part of the solution.

Seamless 1-tap access available hundreds of universities

Title and MeSH Headings from MEDLINE®/PubMed®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.

Founded by medical professionals, QxMD is dedicated to creating high quality point-of-care tools for practicing health care professionals.

app is very good for medical teams seeking evidence. i would put 5/5 if one killer feature is implemented in a future release: as with many generic newsfeed readers, the user scrolls many records and only either clicks or stars the ones interested. In this app there is no way firstly to filter read/unread and secondly please add a very simple option in settings to mark as READ when we scroll through the list so we know which papers we have reviewed already.
