Highlight the text that contains the error.
Then press 'E' ... for Error on your keyboard.
In the example above, the computer has
incorrectly linked to Digitalis, a plant extract
used in the treatment of heart failure.
When a program makes a mistake like this,
sometimes it's because the text matches a
medical term in a way that hasn't been seen
Reporting the error lets the computer know
that it made a mistake.
Errors are sent to editors and are used to
teach the text processing programs of the
Learning Health Systems, contributing to
Just highlight and press 'E'.
Recommending New LinksThis is the creative part
There are many concepts that the computer
programs don't know yet.
Use your mouse to highlight a concept
and then just press 'L' ... for Link.
This recommends the new link and teaches
the computer what concepts to learn next.
The Learning Health Systems study concepts
by reading medical journals that contain them
and clinical trials that research them.
Then new webpages are created based on
the research literature that was found and
the process begins again.
Your recommendations drive development
of new applications like AutoML³ and the
growing Medical Ontology ⁴.
The knowledge created benefits everyone.
