For decades, health information experts have relied upon the same keyword-based technique to obtain even the most critical information needed for drug safety, pharmacovigilance and regulatory intelligence. Although the past 20 years has yielded dramatic improvements with computing speed and power, cloud and mobile computing, researchers still primarily use keyword-based search techniques. Intelligent consumerization has led us all to expect more intelligent ways to find things in everyday life, ranging from route maps to what songs to play, what movies to watch and what to buy on Amazon. See how consumerization is changing the way life sciences experts search – and find – the most relevant content (internal and external) to make mission-critical decisions regarding drug safety, pharmacovigilance and regulatory intelligence.

  • How consumerization is changing the way health information experts find the most relevant internal and external content

  • How to find even more relevant content in less than half the time

  • How to find what you’re looking for, even when you don’t know what terms or keywords to use
