A Medical Knowledge Resource for Medical Education and Clinical Decision Support
MedMap is large curated map of diseases, symptoms, and treatments and the causal mechanisms connecting them.
There are many different ways that MedMap can be used:
Search for any medical concept to see what direct causes and effects it has.
Explore the physiologic mechanisms of drugs and diseases.
Click on boxes to see descriptions, images, and relevant resources and studies.
Step 1 and Step 2 high yield concepts have been collected into topic categories for studying.
Study medicine with interactive map flashcards about high yield disease causes and effects.
Quiz yourself by ordering tests in diagnostic sim cases and see the mechanism behind the underlying physiology.
Drag and drop to make your own concept maps for sharing and saving.
Add personal notes, pictures, and links to each box.
Search for public sketches in Sketchbook and remix them.
Enter a set of findings, and get a problem based summary of dx, tests, treatments, and resources.
Each problem summary comes with an interactive map of the expected findings if it were present.
Findings can also be extracted from note text.
Tools has a list of interfaces which can search through information cards based on medical findings.
Tools can calculate numerical results and display annotated nomograms graphically.
Make your own MedMap Tools easily for following local protocols, only visible to people at your institution.
MedMap is patent pending and was created by Gavin Ovsak, an MD/MBA student at Harvard Medical School and Harvard Business School with a background in biomedical and software engineering.
