To address this, we’ve made several technical enhancements which should bring a better user experience for GRADEpro users with large accounts. Additionally, users can now track the download progress of their projects and choose whether or not to actively synchronize data of projects with the central server.

PanelVoice: examples of use - 20 October 2017

POSTED BY POSTED IN Company News, New Features | No Comments

GRADEpro and its modules are engineered to improve the work of methodologists, stakeholders and experts in the field of evidence-based medicine, especially in developing guidelines or systematic reviews. While using GRADEpro and PanelVoice you can work online or offline, on a computer, notebook or mobile device.

We’ve tried to make the use of the add-on as intuitive as possible. Take a look at the examples on how to use PanelVoice to secure your decision-making flow:

  1. A methodologist prepares research evidence and proposed judgments for the assessment section of the iEtD. The proposed judgments are sent before the panel meeting to the panel group to gather their feedback and identify possible disagreements. The type of recommendation and the final recommendation text is formulated during the meeting and will not be sent through the forms.

PanelVoice – how to use - 16 October 2017

POSTED BY POSTED IN Company News, New Features | No Comments

PanelVoice, a new add-on to GRADEpro, has just been launched. As a facilitator for panel management we recommend the use of PanelVoice by groups, organisations, universities and other institutions to make their guideline development or systematic review process more efficient. PanelVoice expands the possibilities of the standard GRADEpro software by adding new ways of interaction between the panel leader (methodologist) and panel members in the decision making process.

To get full access to this functionality, please contact us: sales@gradeapps.com. We will set the rules of use based on your needs and scope of projects.

How does PanelVoice work?

PanelVoice is an additional to the basic GRADEpro functionality. Any account owner who wants to use this added feature has to purchase the module. Please note, that it is not necessary to purchase the expansion for every panel member, just for people who are administering the process and are interested in having access to the collected data.

The system is based on iEtD recommendation forms which are sent to the panel by email. Panel members enter an attached private link and provide their feedback on the decided scope in the web forms. Finally they are able to submit their answers and all the information is delivered live to the methodologist. Results are aggregated and presented on the iEtD recommendations panel for easy access and analysis.
