What is HEAL Semantic Search?
The NIH HEAL Initiative also provides HEAL Semantic Search, an easy to use, complementary tool to the HEAL Data Platform. HEAL Semantic Search allows users to deep dive into HEAL research and related biomedical topics in order to identify studies, datasets, and variables that might be related to each other in unexpected ways. These novel relations help investigators ask unique research questions and identify potential collaborations.
Using HEAL Semantic Search, users will be able to:
- Identify HEAL studies, variables, and Common Data Elements related to search terms and search results.
- Find connections between biomedical concepts.
- Expand a search by looking at synonyms and related terms.
- Dive deeper into studies and variables of interest on the HEAL Platform.
How Will HEAL Data Help Solve the Opioid Crisis?
The HEAL Platform is a secure, user-friendly, cloud-based search interface that will allow HEAL investigators, other researchers, and a broad range of stakeholders including advocates, clinicians, and community organizers to easily find HEAL research results and data. Secure workspaces in the Platform provide tools and space for analyses. Users can leverage the Platform to inform their own research, practice policies, and inquiries. There are many different types of HEAL data and possible uses for it (see examples below).
