Medlantis (Toronto) tomorrow plans to launch Vital Video, which it is billing as a Netflix or ResearchGate for medical video.
The data-mining engine will include thousands of hours of medical lectures, cases, procedures, workshops, and demonstrations from the world’s top medical societies.
The plan is to offer Vital Video in tiered plans:
- Free, with the ability to watch unlimited videos, but certain features such as playlists will be turned off;
- Unlimited (paid), with all videos, playlist and other premium features available to doctors, nurses, technologists, and students;
- Pro for Physicians (paid), for physicians who need accredited courses for professional education credits;Pro
- Pro for residents and students (paid), to help them pass their board exams.
Medlantis will offer free unlimited access to institutions in developing countries with a World Health Organization Hinari Group A designation.
Medlantis designed Vital Video to highlight short video clips of how physicians use medical technology to perform interventions requiring high degrees of skill.
“We get the worlds’ leading medical 20 to 40 minute training videos, and automatically segment them into 2-to-4-minute clips covering case studies, technology comparisons, risk mitigation, safety, etc.. Medlantis then sorts and serves up short clips of highest relevance to physicians, nurses, technologists and medtech professionals, alerting them when new clips match their interests,” Dr. Kieran Murphy, Medlantis’s founding chairman, said in a news release.
“Using transcription, keyword, contextual and sentiment analysis, meta-tagging, filtering and search features, all fed through a relevancy engine, Medlantis offers a highly effective learning experience,” Murphy said. “This gives medical professionals access to short, relevant, ‘vital video’ clips they need without having to search for it all themselves, which in practice is impossible.”
