EE+ POEMs Include COVID-19 Information

Available to those subscribers of Essential Evidence Plus (EE+) from TDS Health and STAT!Ref, are Daily Patient Oriented Evidence that Matters (POEMs) that, among other topics, now provide information relevant to the COVID-19 pandemic. POEMs are daily (or weekly) email subscription alerts to stay on top of developments about COVID-19, updated regularly as new information becomes available. To learn more about EE+ and POEMs, please see below.


Essential Evidence Plus (EE+) is a continuously updated reference that features over 13,000 topics, guidelines, abstracts, tools, images, and summaries covering the most common conditions, diseases, and procedures clinicians come in contact with every day. Every recommendation carries a strength-of-evidence rating that accurately grades each recommendation’s merit on the basis of all of the evidence available in the relevant literature. EE+, updated monthly, contains content relevant to COVID-19 itself, but POEMs alerts are available via daily (or weekly) email as well.

Available at no extra cost to EE+ subscribers are POEMs, daily e-mail alerts and 5,000+ archived articles to summarize the most recent, relevant research from over 100 journals. POEMs help you stay up to date in your practice. Monthly, the complete set is compiled and sent for additional summary review. Each Daily POEM is also added to the Daily POEMs database in EE+, for easy future reference. Ongoing since 1996, EE+ editors now review more than 1,200 studies monthly from more than 100 medical journals, presenting only the best and most relevant as POEMs. The acclaimed POEMs process applies specific criteria for validity and relevance to clinical practice. About 1 in 40 studies qualifies. Those that have EE+ can set up POEMs by following instructions here.

Two examples of recent related COVID-19 POEMs Research Summaries include COVID-19 research briefs: (1) a case series of convalescent sera, and (2) a negative trial of hydroxychloroquine LOE 2c and COVID-19 research briefs: (3) Guidance for remote (telehealth) management (25 March 2020) LOE 5.
