JACKSONVILLE, Fla., June 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Ask 100 Doctors® is a web- based technology that enables nearly instant access to the consensus opinions of a national panel of Board Certified physicians. This patent pending technology allows users to make decisions based on the collective opinions of physicians in multiple specialties. The system is unique in its rapid access to physicians, transparency and ability to bridge physicians with users from different fields. System users can create their own questions through an on- line interface or work with one of our physician editors to create more comprehensive scenarios.

Michael Koren, MD, FACC, CEO of Encore Research Group, announced the launch of the new web interface. "We have already seen positive responses from corporate clients using the enhanced Ask 100 Doctors® technology. Users have come from many fields including consultancy practice, pharmaceutical market research, hospital formulary decision making, medical-legal affairs, medical news reporting and public policy. We feel the capabilities of the system are just starting to be understood."

The end result is a turbo-charged system that generates actionable information for our clients. I marvel at how the system bridges clients with our doctor panel."
