Doctor Evidence champions a 4-corners consulting model that is unique to the marketplace and only made possible by the intersection of industry leading technology and evidence-based medicine experience and expertise.

Data

Doctor Evidence makes data usable by organizing it into highly structured databases allowing for the integration of advanced analytics. These databases persist into the future meaning they can easily be queried for answers to new questions or updated for expedited sensitivity analysis.

Analyze

Doctor Evidence’s integrated suite of DOC Data analysis tools allows for instant evidence table generation, statistical analysis or meta-analysis (including Bayesian network meta-analysis) or other analyses to help synthesize large volumes of data to drive evidence-informed decision-making.

Methods

The Doctor Evidence suite of products codifies reigning evidence-based medicine methodologies into powerful web-based tools. For clients looking to enhance their own team, Doctor Evidence provides expert methodologists to lead training or offer guidance to meet your specific evidence-based medicine needs.

Decide

Using our word-processing system DOC Create in combination with integrated outputs from DOC Data as well as guidance from Doctor Evidence’s leading methodologists, transparent recommendations and their subsequent strengths can be easily authored and shared.

REAL-WORLD EVIDENCE:

Real-world evidence makes use of data from populations that are better representative of real practice than those studied in clinical trials.

Real-world evidence can help validate results observed in clinical trials or fill in knowledge gaps when trial data is lacking.

Doctor Evidence’s Real-World Evidence service involves partnering with real-world evidence sources to store and process data, providing important clinical information within an integrated platform that allows for instant analysis and knowledge translation.

BURDEN OF ILLNESS:

Understanding the burden of a disease or condition is an important input into the development of new therapies or devices as well as health and policy decision-making.

Doctor Evidence’s Burden of Illness service offers cutting-edge methods and technology to help its clients understand the epidemiological, humanistic and economic impact of disease on different entities from individuals to society as a whole.

As one example of its innovate approach to assessing burden, Doctor Evidence’s DOC NHANES platform provides access to data from each cycle of the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) via a power but user-friendly web interface that allows for instant analysis and reporting of the epidemiology of dozens of self-reported diseases or disorders in a representative sample of U.S. adults.

EVIDENCE GRADING:

Grading the quality of evidence is vital for determining certainty in estimates of effect and in the strength of recommendations or evidence-based decisions.

Doctor Evidence’s team of expert methodologists has proven experience in the rigorous application of evidence grading methodologies for all study designs including industry recognized tools like Cochrane Risk of Bias and GRADE.

Doctor Evidence’s Evidence Grading service is backed by first-class technology housed within the DOC Data environment. Clients using the GRADE approach within the context of a systematic review will be supported through all steps of the process including framing the question(s), choosing outcomes of interest and rating their importance, and evaluating the evidence to arrive at a rating of the certainty of the estimates of effect.

EVIDENCE-BASED ASSESSMENTS:

Evidence-based assessments such as systematic review and meta-analysis provide high value information for answering targeted questions.

Doctor Evidence has industry leading clinical and methodology experts ready to undertake or guide all forms of evidence-based assessment and systematic review relevant to clinical practice guideline development and health technology assessment. Clients will also find an end-to-end solution in Doctor Evidence’s trio of integrated web-based platforms in DOC Library, DOC Data, and DOC Create.

Doctor Evidence’s Evidence-based Assessment services are tailored to each client and their unique evidence question. Doctor Evidence can assist with conflict of interest disclosure and management, framing of research or guideline questions, literature search and screening, evidence synthesis including biostatistical analysis or meta-analysis, evidence grading, formal consensus techniques and recommendation grading.

With state-of the-art technology and expert guidance, Doctor Evidence's clients are certain to meet and exceed the standards established by the Institute of Medicine,  Guidelines International Network, and Council of Medical Professional Societies.
