Special COVID-19 Editions

Dear colleagues, 

I have had multiple requests to compile the evidence based literature on COVID-19. The media is often reporting on preliminary results and we are therefore often faced with patient questions in advance of study publication. As you are well aware, there are very few randomized trials and most of the data presented will therefore be observational. These data nonetheless can be important in directing patient care and providing accurate information to our patients. What follows are intentionally brief reviews. We all have our hands full and this forum is designed to plug gaps in our current knowledge base.

Best regards, 
Dr. Ken Cohen, MD, FACP
Senior Medical Director, OptumCare

Practicing evidence-based medicine (EBM) is important in today’s health care environment because this model of care offers clinicians a way to enrich quality, provide patient satisfaction, reduce costs and improve outcomes. A common implementation of EBM involves the use of clinical practice algorithms during medical decision-making to encourage optimal care. This widely recognized practice is designed to address the persistent problem of clinical practice variation with the help of actionable information at the point of care. These E-newsletters will enable health care professionals (HCPs) to put new EBM into practice.

These E-newsletters are designed to meet the educational needs of physicians, PAs, nurses, nurse practitioners and other HCPs who have an interest in EBM.
