If your guideline panel meeting was cancelled or postponed because of the current COVID-19 pandemics, you can collect feedback from your guideline panel, reach consensus, and make recommendations remotely using PanelVoice.
PanelVoice is an online tool for guideline developers and guideline panel members facilitating the process of going from evidence to recommendations. PanelVoice follows the Evidence-to-Decision framework designed by the GRADE Working Group.
We offer free access to PanelVoice to guideline projects impacted by COVID-19 pandemics.

We finish this year with a deep sense of satisfaction. The end of the year was very intense, but it resulted in many valuable meetings, trips and updates of GRADEpro software.
In September, we were present at the Guidelines International Network Conference in Manchester. This event gave us an opportunity to present a new tool, Interactive Decision Aid (iDeA). IDeA can help patients to understand experts’ recommendations. A tool can be customized to any needs of different groups of interest, as stake-holders, task-forces or patients and dedicated to chosen carrier as online tool, functionality on the website or a mobile application.
As vacations are almost over, we start thinking about new challenges ahead of us in the coming months.
In a few days we will let you know about GRADEpro release that will let you for its better, more effective use.
This year The Health Technology Assessment international 2018 Annual Meeting took place in Vancouver, Canada from Friday, June 1 to Tuesday, June 5.
We were there and had a little input to the programme. Our close contributors, Zuleika Saz Parkinson from Joint Research Centre, Jan Brożek, Gian Paolo Morgano and Wojtek Wiercioch from McMaster University and Evidence Prime CEO, Zbigniew Leś led the workshop “Use of Evidence to Decision frameworks in HTA: increasing stakeholder involvement and transparency”.
Summary of findings tables now offer the option to add automatic narrative statements to their plain language fields.
A user can generate a narrative comment from the drop-down list of suggested sentences, insert it into the table and, optionally, make final adjustments to the text or add their own description. We hope that this functionality will bring an additional layer of understanding between authors and their various audiences.
Some of our most active users, who often have a double-digit number of active projects on their accounts, reported problems with GRADEpro’s speed and a lack of information about data synchronization with the central server. 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.
The Northern Hemisphere is blooming with spring, so it’s time to announce some fresh features that GRADEpro has just blossomed with.
The last release of the software brought useful functionalities and visual changes:
The EtD table was redesigned to make working with it easier and more user-friendly. Now the user who is managing a guideline panel can collapse and expand the view on particular judgement criteria in order to focus the panel’s attention on the current topic. Read More
In February, we celebrated surpassing 30K users of GRADEpro. Your trust in GRADEpro and your active feedback are a real source of motivation for our team to improve and develop the tool. To be accurate, for those of you who are statistics fans, on the 1st of February, we recorded exactly 30,606 users, 54,281 projects, 115,674 questions , 46,397 questions imported from RevMan, and 13,943 iEtD recommendations.
In the next step toward making GRADEpro even more useful for different groups and facilitating customized presentations of results, we’ve introduced a new module. Multi Comparisons, as the module name implies, enables users to compare multiple interventions between each other within a single recommendation framework.
The new year has already bloomed, but we want briefly remind where you had met us in 2017.
