Integrating Evidence Into KP HealthConnect: Making the Right Thing Easier to Do

Grant Okawa, MD

Spring 2005 - Volume 9 Number 2

Clinicians make countless decisions every day regarding diagnosis and treatment, relying principally upon personal experience and clinical judgment. What is also needed--and often lacking--is current, relevant evidence that can inform and strengthen decision making at the point of care. With the ever-increasing body of medical literature, the ability for any individual clinician to stay abreast of this evidence becomes increasingly more difficult, if not impossible. In addition, the information is usually not readily available or accessible when most needed.
