© 2022 The Authors. ScanMedicine is a novel searching system dedicated to providing health care professionals, patients, carers, the public, decision- and policy-makers, and researchers with open access to the development pipeline underpinning health technology innovations. In the first phase of developing ScanMedicine, we have focused on capturing and consolidating clinical trial records hosted on national and international clinical trials registries and medical device approval data from the FDA. ScanMedicine has been developed based on microservice architecture allowing the system to be constantly improved in a flexible and scalable manner. ScanMedicine offers users a convenient and effective single search interface with interactive visualisation features that can provide an overview of the health technology innovation landscape.
