In my words:
When searching medical information from journals using resources such as MEDLINE/PubMed, there is so much information that physicians, researchers, or patients run into problems finding what they need.
Using the Unified Medical Language System (UMLS) maintained by the National Library of Medicine (NLM), the users query of medical information can be improved and the search results returned in a categorized manner which is more helpful than typical search engine ranked results or document cluster results.
