About Us
The insightScope Team.
InsightScope is a web based platform that allows teams to perform the most important and time consuming steps of a systematic review. Uniquely, insightScope also allows investigators to post their projects and seek help from the online community.  Allowing interested and capable members of the online crowd to join their team and assist with project tasks will lead to faster knowledge synthesis and dissemination.  Importantly, insightScope will also allow project leads to spend their time at higher level tasks (e.g. writing manuscripts, seeing patients) and will provide a means for students and health care professionals to learn about and contribute to research in ways that would have normally been out of reach. Win – win.
Our Story

InsightScope

InsightScope was designed as a tool to help scientists and health care professionals perform systematic reviews.

The volume of existing and emerging new research has made it challenging for scientists and health care professionals to stay up-to-date. The accepted approach to knowledge synthesis, where a small team assumes the responsibility of identifying and synthesizing  all  available literature on a topic, is increasingly recognized as inefficient. Consequently, many systematic reviews take years to complete,  are abandoned along the way, or are consider futile and are never initiated.  Unfortunately, the inability to synthesize and translate up to date knowledge has the potentially to impair patient care and/or leads to the unnecessary use of health care resources and research funds.
