Abstract

For physicians who want to be medical information masters, a handheld computer is as vital as a stethoscope, and perhaps more so. Great software for EBM is available for both Palm and Pocket PC platforms; perhaps the most useful are the clinical decision rules and calculators that help turn an esoteric research paper into an eminently useful decision support tool for use at the point of care.
