From evidence to policy making - 23 November 2017

How to keep people alive and in the best possible health?

Whether you are a methodologist, a physician or a statistician, you would like to find your work useful and beneficial. The field in which we would like to make the most impact by using GRADE methodology is medicine, and the goal of medicine is to keep people alive and in the best possible health for as long as possible. To achieve this goal, we conduct systematic reviews and develop guidelines, and use available tools to verify the available data and to tailor recommendations to patient preferences and local conditions. Evidence Prime is developing software that partly automates and accelerates systematic reviews and guidelines development. The purpose of well-documented, evidence-based policy is to enable patients to benefit from the latest advances in scientific research. How to efficiently and effectively implement this knowledge within the health care system is not an easy question. Unfortunately, in few countries, even well-developed ones, there is a system of “early information”. This is not just because the health-care machine has a lot of inertia; the problem goes much deeper, and also higher up at the administrative level.

To use the analogy of the human body: The head has to hear and understand what the scientists have to say. Then the heart must initiate the action by pumping blood into the arteries. Then the limbs start moving. Before making changes to medical policy, first the decision makers need to understand the evidence and need to want to make the changes. Read More

A handful of memories from Cape Town - 21 September 2017

POSTED BY POSTED IN #GRADEplanet, Company News | No Comments

Zbys and Eric have just came back from Global Evidence Summit in Cape Town. These were very intensive days, full of inspiring meetings, interesting speeches and instructive workshops.

GRADEpro

Could be anything more satisfying for Evidence Prime than popularity of our core software? GRADEpro is the leader of interactive tools used by Grade Working Group according to Zachary Munn’s speech ”User preferences regarding online tools for systematic review and guideline production: results from a G-I-N Tech Survey”. Yes, we are really proud!

Livia Puljak from #CochraneCroatia used our new GRADEpro module for discordant reviews.

GRADE workshops were also led with a little help from GRADEpro tools and Zbys himself.

 

#GRADEplanet

This year the global situation seemed to call for a global approach and we decided to act during the Global Evidence Summit. We stand for research methods, evidence, and we want to make an impact. To us, the GRADE approach symbolises rational thinking, scientific inquiry, and embracing of unavoidable uncertainty. This is why “Make the planet GRADE again” idea appeared and Homo Sapiens Manifesto was proclaimed (https://gradeplanet.org/).

The results of the action exceeded our expectations. Yes, we see the need of spreading GRADE idea and idea of common sense in the world, but so often, and we are sure you feel sometimes the same – we feel being alone with our beliefs and convictions. In Cape Town we felt a part of the big solidarity group, wanting the better World, thinking logically, open for discussion, ready to explain. More than 1500 views of #HomoSapiensManifesto on www.gradeplanet.org, over 1000 twitter entries (@grade_planet), over 150 signatures under the manifesto – this is the result of our happening and your commitment.

GRADEpeople

Finally we would like to thank all the people who have supported #GRADEplanet. The warm feedback we experienced is the major evidence for the need of clarity, logic and education in medical science. Thank you so much for your support. See you soon!
