Abstract

askMEDLINE is a free-text, natural language search tool for MEDLINE/PubMed. Since its introduction a year ago, more than 15,000 queries have been received, mostly in the form of questions or complex phrases. Questions on therapy were the most searched. We review our yearlong experience, an updated evaluation using 'gold standard' questions selected by EBM experts and discuss added features.
