High-Impact Reports on the Latest Medical Studies. All Curated and Written by Practicing Physicians and Health Professionals
Winner of the 2015 Massachusetts Medical Society Information Technology Award for Innovation in Medicine
Our reviews and summaries of new medical studies are typically released the same day as the original study in the publishing medical journal.
We focus on rapid publishing and efficiency for our readers. That's why we curate only the highest-impact studies from the literature milleu.
We publish new reports daily, typically >100 per month.
We summarize and rate each study according to validated guidelines for the appraisal of evidence-based medicine. We focus on the objective qualities of the study, not the subjective conclusions.
Our academic arm studies the interplay of media/publishing with medical education. We have presented data at numerous international medical education conferences around the world.
Our reports are syndicated by licensees around the world for viewing by their readers.
With active readers in over 130 countries totaling 10,000,000+ articles reads/year, 2 Minute Medicine® is a recognized and authoratative global publishing organization.
2 Minute Medicine® was created by Marc D. Succi, MD, a physician at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital, to fill the need for professional curation and accurate reporting of the medical literature milieu. Originally consisting of short study summaries, the organization was built and scaled after realizing that the need for objective, quality-rated and concise medical reporting spanned far beyond the quad.
The tiered reporting system is at the heart of our content - summaries are organized in a “2 Minute Rundown" as one would typically give to colleagues on the hospital wards. There is an unwavering focus on selecting high-quality evidence in the form of systematic reviews, meta-analyses, randomized trials, as well as a small subset of the high-quality observational literature.
Medical literature publication trends in the last 30 years have been characterized by explosive growth. This is largely secondary to the birth of evidence-based medicine in the early 1990s and emerging digital age of publication, with new journals publishing vast amounts of low-quality evidence. As such, the average quality of published literature is declining rapidly while the number of studies increases exponentially. Physicians and other health professionals, both in training and practicing, have the onerous task of sorting through this milieu of academic medical publications to keep abreast of breaking developments.
Our approach is simple:
