EvidenceLive brings together leading speakers in evidence-based medicine from all over the world, from the fields of research, clinical practice and commissioning.  Evidence live is the place for learning about the latest advances in evidence-based healthcare and finding out how they can be best applied in clinical practice.

Kim Kristiansen, M.D. from Zignifica made the presentation with the title Developing a Method and System to Evaluate Clinical Usefulness of Findings in Medical Research.

The presentation w held in the section  in the section asTranslating Evidence into Better-Quality Health Services (1).  

The Abstract is here:

0048 – Developing a Method and System to Evaluate Clinical Usefulness of Findings in Medical Research Kim Kristiansen, JG Staal
Zignifica, Richmond, Virginia, USA

Background: The clinical usefulness of findings from medical science presented in scientific medical journals depends on the quality of the study, and thereby by both the method and design of the study and of the findings. Results presented in medical journals are rarely possible to interpret and understand for patients and untrained persons, and it is difficult and time-consuming for physicians and other healthcare professionals to distinguish clinical useful and not-useful information in the plethora of medical information. Aim: To develop a method and system to evaluate clinical usefulness of findings in medical research, by evaluating and rating the clinical usefulness and significance of the method and design, results and conclusion of medical research, and present this in an easily understandable and accessible structure and format.

Method: The method and system capture and analyzes information provided within and directly distilled from the medical research such as PubMed, Europe-PubMed-Central, scientific medical journal websites, ClinicalTrials-website etc. Based on statistical and medical accepted functions the system determines the statistical and clinical significance related to the methods and results as presented in the medical research. Result: Developing a mobile application with the system and algorithms followed.

The evaluation of the individual paper is presented as scores and ranking based on evaluation of both method/design and the results of the individual study. The system also provides a description in terms understandable for both persons with and without medical education. Focusing on pain-related research, the system is tested for usefulness and value in a test panel including both healthcare professionals and non-medical persons.

Conclusion: The method enables healthcare professionals and non-medical persons to get easy access to useful information from clinical-relevant medical research, and when presented with information based on medical research to evaluate the clinical usefulness of this information.
