Clinical Practice Guidelines We Can Trust

Clinical Practice Guidelines We Can Trust | El pulso de la eSalud | Scoop.it
Advances in medical, biomedical and health services research have reduced the level of uncertainty in clinical practice. Clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) complement this progress by establishing standards of care backed by strong scientific evidence. CPGs are statements that include recommendations intended to optimize patient care. These statements are informed by a systematic review of evidence and an assessment of the benefits and costs of alternative care options. Clinical Practice Guidelines We Can Trust examines the current state of clinical practice guidelines and how they can be improved to enhance healthcare quality and patient outcomes. Clinical practice guidelines now are ubiquitous ...

Informatics Needs and Challenges in Cancer Research: Workshop Summary

Informatics Needs and Challenges in Cancer Research:  Workshop Summary | El pulso de la eSalud | Scoop.it
As information technology becomes an integral part of health care, it is important to collect and analyze data in a way that makes the information understandable and useful. Informatics tools--which help collect, organize, and analyze data--are essential to biomedical and health research and development. The field of cancer research is facing an overwhelming deluge of data, heightening the national urgency to find solutions to support and sustain the cancer informatics ecosystem. There is a particular need to integrate research and clinical data to facilitate personalized medicine approaches to cancer prevention and treatment--for example, tailoring treatment based on an individual patient's ...

Assessing Genomic Sequencing Information for Health Care Decision Making: Workshop Summary

Assessing Genomic Sequencing Information for Health Care Decision Making:  Workshop Summary | El pulso de la eSalud | Scoop.it
Rapid advances in technology have lowered the cost of sequencing an individual's genome from the several billion dollars that it cost a decade ago to just a few thousand dollars today and have correspondingly greatly expanded the use of genomic information in medicine. Because of the lack of evidence available for assessing variants, evaluation bodies have made only a few recommendations for the use of genetic tests in health care. For example, organizations, such as the Evaluation of Genomic Applications in Practice and Prevention working group, have sought to set standards for the kinds of evaluations needed to make ...

EHR with huge taxpayer subsidies, but has rebuffed calls for hazards monitoring despite evidence of harm - The Boston Globe

EHR with huge taxpayer subsidies, but has rebuffed calls for hazards monitoring despite evidence of harm - The Boston Globe | El pulso de la eSalud | Scoop.it
President Obama and Congress poured $30 billion in taxpayer subsidies for digital medical records beginning in 2009, with few strings attached and no safety oversight of the vendors who sell the systems. Although the explosion in use of the electronic records has opened up a new category of patient risks, the Obama administration has opted against mandatory reporting of problems.
