MeSH Speller + askMEDLINE: Auto-Completes MeSH Terms Then Searches MEDLINE/PubMed via Free-Text, Natural Language Queries

Abstract

Medical terminology is challenging even for healthcare personnel. Spelling errors can make searching MEDLINE/PubMed ineffective. We developed a utility that provides MeSH term and Specialist Lexicon Vocabulary suggestions as it is typed on a search page. The correctly spelled term can be incorporated into a free-text, natural language search or used as a clinical queries search.
