EBM, Medical Images and Patient Information Tabs have been introduced, previously all the content was mixed into one search interface. As the number of results categories increased so the usability started to suffer.

An analysis showed that there were distinct search types, represented by our three search tabs. These tabs allow for easy movement between these domains.

EBM – our core material.

Medical images – an area we’re not renowned for but this is an excellent feature and is probably the largest, free, searchable collection of medical images on the internet.

Patient information leaflets – The principle aim in TRIP is to support clinicians in answering their clinical questions. However, these same clinicians frequently have a desire to locate patient information leaflets to give to their patients.

Tabbing is seen in most general search engines and the inclusion in TRIP will further enhance usability.
