Evidence-based care is a key component in reaching our goals of higher quality and improved efficiency.
The key components of evidence-based care are:
• Order sets
• Multidisciplinary care plans
• Clinical Decision Support tools (CDS)
• Targeted education
• Discharge plans
Community Medical Centers (CMC) has partnered with Zynx, the leading resource software for evidence-based care. Zynx provides up-to-date, comprehensive access to the latest research comprising hundreds of diagnoses and procedures.
Over the next six months, physicians and clinical staff will be able to view order sets and review the Zynx evidence electronically. There will be functionality that allows the user to review the order sets, give feedback and view feedback other users have given.
ZynxOrder content is based on articles that address the quality, safety and efficiency of patient care. Each reference is classified according to study methodology. References contain links to Evidence Tables, PubMed citations and/or abstracts, websites and full-text PDF files.
