Abstract


Epistemonikos.org is a database of resources that provides evidence-based health care information in a central depository to assist people in making decisions for clinical or health policy questions. This database is provided free of charge and is put together by a nonprofit organization based out of Santiago, Chile, formed by individuals associated with different institutions. The database is updated continuously, by systematically searching different databases and by utilizing web technologies to store the information. The purpose and goal of this resource is to provide quick access to systematic reviews and broad combinations of reviews and primary studies in health care. Additionally, it is a multilingual database available in nine different languages, and titles and abstracts are translated and can easily be searched by providers whose primary language may not be English.
