Why Practice EBM?
PROBLEM: Practitioner information needs are not currently being met
- FACT: Physicians report that for each patient interaction three questions are generated. Generally only 30% of those questions are being answered during patient visits due to time constraints, lack of access to information resources and weak search skills.1
- EBM SOLUTION: Synthesized EBM resources help to quickly and more easily connect practitioners with evidence-based answers to their clinical questions.
- EBM RESOURCE: Clinical Evidence, from the BMJ, provides concise evidence-based summaries structured to efficiently answer specific clinical questions.
