most gratifying partnerships are the ones that have the potential to directly impact
patients and improve their outcomes and well-being through the use of evidence. This
engagement with the Elsevier EBM Center is one of those partnerships.”

DRE will configure databases with high quality data from the medical literature

reliably and easily managed through a robust technology platform that is compliant with
the standards set forth by the world’s leading authorities on evidence-based medicine.

“The EBM Center is charged with ensuring that Elsevier’s clinical content is as
high-quality and evidence-based as it can be. Among the many companies claiming to be able
to meet our needs for extracting and synthesizing clinical data to support our activities,
Doctor Evidence stands alone with its combination of people, process and technology,”
