PatientKeeper, Inc., a developer of physician information systems, and global publisher John Wiley and Sons, Inc., have announced that physicians and other healthcare professionals using PatientKeeper will be able to consult InfoPOEM's evidence-based content in the context of specific patients' information. Reference Library links patient-specific clinical information--such as medication lists, diagnoses, lab results, etc.—to clinical knowledge available through third parties.
POEM is an acronym for "Patient-Oriented Evidence that Matters." POEMs are daily email summaries of medical research filtered from over 100 peer-reviewed journals and graded for validity and relevance to patient outcomes. Approximately one in 40 eligible studies is converted into a POEM and each POEM is reviewed by at least 15 physicians and/or physician editors prior to publication.
