Our members are strapped for time, so a powerful search function is valuable. Keyword searches for colleagues, medications, trending topics and more provide valuable, just-in-time information. This is incredibly useful for members that have only minutes between patients.
The search function can be helpful when a patient raises a concern about a medication. Today, patients routinely research symptoms, conditions and treatments online, and not all websites are useful or reputable. Yet, patients constantly reference what they’ve read on various sites to justify a certain medication, self-diagnosis or alternative treatment. When this happens, Skipta members can quickly search their community using hashtags or key words to find articles and other content that can help them counsel the patient.
