Evaluating the use of OrthoEvidence as a Decision-Making Tool at an Orthopaedic Surgical Hospital in India

OrthoEvidence gathers the most up-to-date, high-impact literature articles, summarizes them and sends out Advanced Clinical Evidence (ACE) reports to subscribers. A random group of residents in Pune, India at the Sancheti Institute of Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation will have access to the mobile app?s targeted OrthoEvidence ACE reports based on their specialty while the control group of residents will not have access to OrthoEvidence. Residents will report through surveys whether they believe OrthoEvidence has made a difference in their decision-making at the point-of-care, providing examples of how they used the knowledge from an ACE report in their practice. The quantitative data obtained from the OrthoEvidence database will offer information on the actual time residents are spending on the mobile app, the types of articles being accessed, and a trend in usage. We expect to see a perceived improvement in informed decision-making on the part of physicians with access to targeted reports.
