High-Concept

We're Netflix + ResearchGate for Medical Video.

What we do

Deep-mining medical video.

We data mine & match 1000's of hours of medical lectures, cases, procedures, workshops, and demonstrations from the world's top medical societies.

Then match that information to a Healthcare Professional's interests and preferences to help them vastly improve the return on their enormous effort invested in staying clinically current.

Given today's speed and volume of change in medical and clinical technology and associated patient-outcomes, we deliver the best clinical & medical video matches, in real-time, to a healthcare professional's device of choice; mobile, tablet, or desktop.

Why

To help solve the projected 12.9 million shortage of Healthcare Professionals worldwide.  Medlantis products are available for free to healthcare professionals from Hinari Group A countries.

Overview

Data mining of 1000's of hours of medical lectures, cases, procedures, workshops, and demonstrations from the world's top medical societies, matched to healthcare professionals, viewed on their mobile device.

 

Description

Data mining allows us to identify all the points-of-interest within a video, and highlight those points as chapters. We mine each video for the following meta-data (non-exhaustive):

  • Fulltext, time encoded, transcript
  • Society
  • Year
  • Session Title
  • Speaker
  • Lecture Title
  • Disclosures
  • Case Title
  • Presenting Complaint
  • Case Start Time
  • Case End Time
  • Case Length
  • Patient Gender
  • Age
  • Diagnosis
  • First Line Therapy
  • Second Line therapy (if 1st failed)
  • Device type
  • Device Trademarked Name
  • Off-label Use Discussed?
  • Device Company Name
  • Other branded products used
  • Therapeutic / Diagnostic / or Both
  • Was there Audience Response (poll the audience formally or informally)?
  • Audience Response Time Stamp

We run keyword, contextual, and sentiment analysis to ensure each chapter is tagged appropriately.  We then match content to users based on their preferences and finally distribute that content through Medlantis' proprietary Vital Video desktop and mobile web-app and alert engine.
