Evidence Matters Adds New Disease Modules

Evidence Matters, Inc. (, a digital medical resource that allows clinicians to compare therapies for their patients based on peer-reviewed medical research, is releasing specialty content in three new areas for its evidence-based search engine. The new modules cover disease topics in Respiratory Disorders, Gastroenterology, and Neurology. ProQuest Information and Learning ( is the exclusive global distributor of Evidence Matters to the academic and hospital markets; the company began distributing it in January 2006. Evidence Matters complements ProQuest's periodical full-text products and medical books.

The three new Evidence Matters modules complement current content in Oncology, Cardiology, and Endocrine and Metabolic Disorders, adding to the growing list of medical disciplines (which is expected to include 10 specialty areas by the end of the year).

In addition to this release, Evidence Matters recently enhanced its user interface. Improvements include a simplified look to the Evidence Matters basic search page for IP-recognition users. Also, the advanced Question Wizard form has been reorganized to make it even easier to construct searches in a PICO search structure (PICO = "Patient/Problem," "Intervention," "Comparison," "Outcome"). The PICO search structure provides for more evidence-based results. New one-click contextual help is now available throughout the product Web pages.
