Background: The progress of scientific knowledge produces an excessive amount of scholarly literature. For effective clinical use it is necessary to use time, quality and relevance filtering.
Objectives: We decided to create an independent web based interface for searching the PubMed Database for recent evidence-based articles in the domain of cardiology.
Results: The Cardio Online Reader (COR) application (http://neo.euromise.cz/cor) offers an easy way to reach valid and relevant articles filtered by keywords, MeSH terms, authors, date of publication and type of publication. Results can be commented, rated, stored as citations and shared using most popular web sharing services.
Conclusion: Using COR can positively affect clinical decisions of physicians bringing them relevant and up-to-date scientific information.
