Based on the theme, ‘Making Evidence-Based Medicine Doable in Everyday’ Wolters Kluwer, a global provider of trusted clinical technology and evidence-based solutions organised a virtual conference in association with Indian Chamber of Commerce to deliberate the importance of adopting evidence-based medicine (EBM) to enhance clinical decision-making and care of patients.
Inaugurating the conference, Dr Rupali Basu, Co-Chair, ICC National Healthcare Committee, CEO and Director, Woodlands Hospital said, “Healthcare needs to be highly integrated with evidence, needs to be more precise and a scientific based decision making is required. Adoption of evidence-based medicine is necessary for a standardised care and reduce clinical negligence.”
The discussion revolved around how evidence-based medicine has become an extremely important tool as a scientific method for using the best medical practice to achieve best patient outcome. Technologically integrated EMB practice will heIp the clinicians to get the information on best medical practice at the point of care. It integrates clinical experience, research date, patient value to give the best possible treatment.
Prof Dr Kameshwar Prasad, Director, RIMS, Ranchi mentioned, “The adoption of evidence-based medicine is absolutely necessary in India. To this date, only a few doctors and practitioners have idea about it. Hence, it is important to educate the medical fraternity about the importance and benefit of this practice.”
Insisting on the importance of integrating evidence based medicine practice, Harish Ramachandran, Country Manager, Clinical effectiveness, Wolters Kluwer India stated, “Practicing evidence-based medicine integrated with digital technologies have given an edge to clinicians to make informed clinical decisions and adopt best treatment for their patients.”
The session concluded with the panellist emphasising on the need of digital technologies to be integrated in healthcare.
