COVID-19 Key Evidence

While working on clinical content (decision, documentation and inquiry supports) for the care of patients with COVID-19, we base support behaviors on best available evidence. Some of the more clinically useful references are listed here.

Please see the COVID-19 Content page for information about ordering, documenting and other tools designed specifically with COVID-19 in mind, and the COVID-19 Workflows page for ideas about how to integrate this content into workflows that support care of patients with COVID-19 illness.
