winter 2015 21 The makers of Docphin strive to make evidence-based medical research more accessible through mobile technology and keep the content meaningful for provid- ers who have limited time and resources. Rishi Sharma, M.D., is chief gastroenterology fellow at the Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. "As a training physi- cian, my goal is to be current with the latest research articles that a r e r e l e v a n t t o m y interests and that jour- nals I trust and respect publish," says Sharma. But since most of the content is fragmented, it can be hard to keep up with research. "I often don't have time to read articles when I discover them," he says. Sharma tried manually flagging arti- cles in emails and lists to read later. However, this proved time-consuming. "I marked articles in various places and then—when I couldn't relocate them consis- tently—I had to find the articles via my hospital's library website, which could take several minutes." While looking for other ways to stay current, he came across Docphin. With Docphin on his iPhone, Sharma can locate saved articles while moving through the hospital. "I can bring up the app any time to browse trending articles and to search for and access landmark papers. Since I have affiliated my account with my insti- tution, I can get to a full-text article very easily, which saves me a lot of time," he says. Sharma has found Docphin espe- cially useful in staying abreast of specific diseases and treatments. "I am able to stay up to date with Hepatitis C treatments, which have been changing rapidly over the past few years," he says. "Being able to read the articles easily on my phone during brief periods of down- time has helped me treat patients because I am able to offer them a greater understanding of future options regarding their treatment."
