Evidence-Based Practice Model Can Help Hospitals Deliver Best Care, Cut Costs

(University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine) Amid continued pressures to minimize errors and cut costs, hospitals are continuing to scramble to find solutions to problems plaguing health systems nationwide.
A possible solution to many of those issues can be found in hospital evidence-based practice centers (EPCs), says a new Penn Medicine study suggesting EPCs can effectively inform decision-making in medical settings…
"Hospital EPCs are also uniquely equipped to identify and adapt national evidence-based guidelines and systematic reviews to benefit their local institutions," says Craig A. Umscheid, MD, MSCE, an assistant professor of Medicine, director of Penn Medicine's Center for Evidence-Based Practice (CEP), and senior author of the study… "By synthesizing this valuable data, EPCs can inform health care leaders on how to make decisions that improve care, cut costs, and achieve other positive changes throughout their operations."
