SAN CARLOS, Calif. / STUTTGART, Germany — October 11, 2011 — Increasingly, medical professionals are digitizing patient records, such as radiological diagnoses, lab results, and progress charts. When it comes to applications, the medical community relies heavily on the ability to locate up-to-date information about specific areas of expertise, clinical patterns, and other scientific findings. This is why Thieme Publishers, an international publisher, relies on MarkLogic Corporation, the company empowering organizations to make high stakes decisions on Big Data in real time, to make existing information services more user-friendly and develop new applications for researchers and physicians alike.
Thieme is one of the leading information providers in medicine, providing books, periodicals, and electronic media to researchers, students, physicians, and other professionals within the healthcare field. The publisher has an enormous amount of content, images, and graphics, all of which are available in different formats. MarkLogic’s technology creates the necessary framework that allows the data to be configured, structured, and integrated into complex electronic products.
“Our goal is to supply our customers with indispensable and user-friendly applications,” says Brian Scanlan, president, Thieme Publishers, New York. “We view MarkLogic as an important partner in this goal. We look forward to better serving our researchers, medical students, and other medical professionals in their line of work.”
MarkLogic solutions allow users to actively engage with the content – from sophisticated searches to convenient displays, data storage, and search engine solutions.
“As the traditional publishing market continues to go digital, publishers need to be prepared for the challenges digitization presents,” said John Pomeroy, Vice President, MarkLogic Europe. “Thieme addressed this challenge and selected MarkLogic to power new applications that allow them to leverage unstructured information and to offer their products in ways they never thought possible. By offering products on devices and in ways customers want them, MarkLogic will help Thieme achieve its goal of being the standard in German medical publishing.”
