Our objective is to help globalize the evidence and localize the recommendations.
Santa Monica, California (PRWEB) June 17, 2014
Synergies between the private/public sectors are increasingly popular in light of technology connectivity and increased transparency standards. Rarely do these objectives align as closely as this year’s partnership between Doctor Evidence LLC and the Guidelines International Network (G-I-N). Doctor Evidence will serve as the platinum sponsor of the G-I-N annual conference (August 20-23, 2014 in Melbourne, Australia) focused on how to use digital innovations to support guideline development, which aligns goals of both organizations.
Doctor Evidence’s goal is to support efforts of healthcare providers and policymakers to gain access to important evidence-based knowledge and to improve the health and well-being of patients worldwide. In that regard, Doctor Evidence has launched a suite of guideline-related products and services that compliment the work of G-I-N and its members. The GROWTH (Guideline and Research Organizations Worldwide for Transparency and Harmonization) initiatives are presented at http://www.GROWTHevidence.com. The GROWTH Map, GROWTH Network, and GROWTH Patient Network will all be showcased at the G-I-N conference. Additionally, Doctor Evidence has partnered with the MAGICApp, which offers guideline developers an integrated solution for GRADE-based evidence synthesis, guideline development, and implementation.
As a platinum sponsor of this year’s conference in Melbourne, Australia, August 20-13, 2014, Doctor Evidence will have a large booth where the GROWTH Map and technology platforms will be showcased. Representing the company will be Karin Lawson-Remer, MPH, Vice President of Clinical Affairs, and Gerald Borok, PhD, Senior Director of Client Solutions. Each will present their research during the conference. Ms. Lawson-Remer, will discuss “The Use of Technology to Increase the Reliability of Systematic Reviews” and Dr. Borok will present “Systematic Reviews: How Accurate Are They and How Can We Do Better?” These conference abstracts are posted here.
“We are proud to support the important work of the Guidelines International Network,” stated Robert Battista, CEO and co-founder of Doctor Evidence. “Our objective is to help globalize the evidence and localize the recommendations, which mirrors the commitment of G-I-N.”
