Research-based medical evidence is generated at an exponential rate, but it is not readily available to clinicians yet. Besides that clinical practitioners lack the time needed to search for it and lack the skills needed to identify it, appraise it and apply it in clinical decision-making. All that causes the need for new information resources reaching the „3Rs“ of evidence-based communication, i.e. reliability, relevance and readability.
This work describes newly developed web application aimed to implement the mentioned features to evidence-based information resource in the field of cardiology. Selected entries from database PubMed are utilized as the source of trustworthy evidence. The work was partly supported by the project 1M06014 of the Ministry of Education CR and the research plan AV0Z10300504.
