    The Brazilian Ministries of Health and Education to Provide Access to DynaMed™ as Part of a New Site Providing Evidence-Based Information to Healthcare Professionals~

    IPSWICH, Mass. — September 11, 2012 — The Brazilian Ministries of Health and Education have made the evidence-based clinical reference DynaMed™ available to more than 900,000 healthcare professionals throughout the country. The ministries in a partnership with the Coordenação de Aperfeiçoamento de Pessoal de Nível Superior (CAPES), the Brazilian Federal Agency for the Support and Evaluation of Graduate Education, have created a portal called Evidence-based Health ( to provide access to the latest clinical information in order to improve medical decisions and diagnoses.

    DynaMed is a clinical reference tool designed for use primarily at the point of care. DynaMed contains clinically-organized summaries for more than 3,200 topics. Daily updates provide the best available evidence available to clinicians making medical decisions. International guidelines and topics make DynaMed a valuable resource around the world.

    A September 2011 study published in the British Medical Journal shows DynaMed is the fastest at including new evidence among point-of-care resources while also indicating that slow updates can impact patient care. A recent report in KLAS rated DynaMed higher than other disease reference tools. Survey respondents indicated that DynaMed excelled in the credibility of the information it provided and in the relevance of its information.
