Description
Summary:OBJECTIVE: We conducted a pilot project to evaluate the use of Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Evidence-based Practice Center (EPC) comparative effectiveness reviews in clinical point-of-care tools. METHODS: We selected a sample of AHRQ EPC comparative effectiveness reviews, traced reports to publications, and reviewed relevant evidence summaries from three clinical point-of-care tools (DynaMed, UpToDate, and First Consult) for citation of reports or publications. RESULTS: We found moderate use of AHRQ EPC comparative effectiveness reviews in the three clinical point-of-care tools. CONCLUSIONS: Use of AHRQ EPC products was moderate, and no clear patterns were identified in this pilot project. Results should be used to develop more comprehensive assessments of the use of AHRQ EPC comparative effectiveness reviews in the increasingly popular clinical point-of-care tools
