SAPHIRE is an experimental information retrieval system implemented to test new approaches to automated indexing and retrieval of medical documents. Due to limitations in its original concept-matching algorithm, a modified algorithm has been implemented which allows greater flexibility in partial matching and different word order within concepts. With the concomitant growth in client-server applications and the Internet in general, the new algorithm has been implemented as a server that can be accessed via other applications on the Internet.
