How Docphin is Different than an RSS Reader
Many people have wondered how Docphin is unique from other platforms for organizing medical content, so we’re going to start by explaining the difference between Docphin and any old RSS Reader.
Here’s what RSS readers do:
- Pulls in live stream from sources that have RSS feeds for the past few weeks
Here’s what Docphin does that RSS readers do not:
- Curates contents from your favorite journals going back over a decade
- Applies sophisticated relevancy filters to each source to remove less meaningful content (e.g. “replies to author”)
- Quick filters let you view the most viewed, commented, or recent. You can look back a week, month, year or since you last logged on.
- Provides you access to full text articles with one click buy automating a connection to your library which reduces a 5 to 8 step process down to 1 step!
- Integrates real-time information from Key Opinion Leaders and Medical Societies through Twitter
- Lets you see what people like you are reading, sharing, and discussing
As physicians, we created Docphin to solve a major problem that we’ve faced for years doing medical research. We’re continuing to integrate more features into the platform to ensure we continue to make it easier for you to practice medicine and advance your medical education. We’re always open to ideas too, so please drop us a line if you have any suggestions.
