Medstory's mission is to enable users to search complex fields on the Web intelligently

What Company Is Offering:
Medstory's mission is to enable users to search complex fields on the Web intelligently. They're starting with health and medicine – an area where many people will appreciate a service that helps them quickly get high value information, and a field where we have expertise based on our work with health-related organizations.

To them, providing intelligent search means supporting an understanding of both a user's intent behind a search and the results that are delivered. For a field like health and medicine, they believe that search engines should deliver more to users than just a list of Web pages. Their approach is to try to synthesize the meaning of every user search in the context of health and medicine, and then share this knowledge with the user to help refine and guide their search.

How It Works:
When you use Medstory to search for health information, your results page will usually contain much more than just links to relevant pages on the Web. This quick guide will help you get the most out of your Medstory search experience.

When Medstory presents Information that Matters, it puts this information in categories (like drugs, conditions and personal health) to help you quickly find what matters most. To learn more about the categories that Medstory uses.

Within each information category, every item is followed by a bar that represents how relevant Medstory thinks that item is to your search. For each category, the longer the bar, the more relevant.
