Essential Evidence Plus is a clinical decision-making tool that provides point-of-care information for physicians, nurses, and other healthcare professionals. Essential Evidence Topics are the central feature of the platform; they provide best-evidence answers to the most important clinical questions concerning symptoms, diseases, drugs, and other treatment regimens. Every recommendation carries a strength-of-evidence rating that grades its merit on the basis of all of the evidence available in the relevant literature.

POEMs (Patient Oriented Evidence that Matters) research summaries are another major feature of Essential Evidence Plus. POEMs summarize the most recent, relevant research to help clinicians stay current in their practice. Users may create personal accounts and sign up to receive POEMs via email. 

In addition, Essential Evidence Plus includes decision support tools, diagnostic test calculators, history and physical exam calculators, abstracts from Cochrane Systemic Reviews with links to Cochrane Library, dermatological images, National Guidelines Clearinghouse practice guidelines, anatomy illustrations, and more.
