Complete 6S pyramid displaying all six levels from Studies at the bottom to Systems at the top

Definition

Systems are medical information resources that are integrated into electronic medical record (EMR) systems. For example, point-of-care resources, such as UpToDate, are linked right within the patient record so clinicians can quickly locate information right from within the record rather than accessing these resources externally.
 

The Evidence

Integrated EMR resources are becoming more and more common. Currently, UpToDate and Micromedex are integrated into Beaumont's EPIC system. However, for the purposes of the EBM Course, you will be starting with Summaries when searching for evidence.
