What is Dynamed?

DynaMed is a physician point-of-care clinical reference tool created by physicians for physicians and other health care professionals.  It offers clinically-organized summaries for more than 3,200 topics. 
DynaMed utilizes an editorial team to continually improve, update and manage content by combining the skill, experience, and expertise of physicianspharmacistsallied health professionalsscientistsepidemiologistsmedical writersmedical editors, and medical librarians.

Evidenced-based methodology

A clinical resource that is truly evidenced-based must contain summaries and recommendations based on the best evidence to date. This can only be done by systematically identifying and appraising the literature available. DynaMed plus employs a 7 step process to consistently and systematically identify, select, evaluate, interpret, and summarize available evidence. DynaMed Plus also appraises and updates evidence daily, and even alters their conclusions when new evidence becomes available. 
Below is a link to the 7 step process as well as sources of content and editor information.
