Abstract

PURPOSE:To create a chest-specific and peer-reviewed pulmonary search engine, with high validity and reliability, customized to the individual users needs.

METHODS:Peer-reviewed contents and websites are included in the search engine, thus shortening the time needed to find relevant information and increasing the specificity of the results. This includes, but is not limited to, general and specific searches for cases, images, publications, thoracic societies and news. Users may tailor their searches to their specific needs in a dedicated preference section.

RESULTS:Many Internet search engines display non-specific search results. It is time-consuming to filter desired information. Pulmonologists need a tool to search and display lung-specific and peer-reviewed contents. Non- thoracic contents need to be filtered to find more targeted hits, thus reducing time needed to find seeked information.

CONCLUSION:This user-tailored chest search engine increases the specificity and reduces the amount of time the Pulmonologists needs to find the desired information. Validity and reliability are high due to only searching peer-reviewed contents. Customization of the search engine satisfies the individuals preferences and needs.

CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS:This is a free service, which is exclusively dedicated to searching and displaying thoracic related information.
