Are you current in health information technology and it's impact on your business. There are many sources available. A recent study reveals how MDs access information using the internet.


"GOOGLE" is now a noun as well as a verb. When one thinks about search, "Google" is the first engine which comes to mind.

Google search reveals the following when I searched for the top search engines for health.

7 Trusted Medical Journal Search Engines

Finding a medical journal search engine

Search engines are designed to integrate with an online academic database of archived published literature.
Large medical journal databases index articles from thousands of journals all across the world. Here are just a few databases commonly used by credible medical search engines:
Ovid, Science Direct and Scopus require individual subscriptions and/or       
institutional links.

The cost of some of these paywalls is very high  in many cases, and only suitable for academic research with formal research grants. They are not appropriate for individual searches.  PubMed, Medline are the most useful from personal experienc and will direct users to the source abstract and/or citation.
And of course Google Search will bring you to all of these search engines.
