The Stanford-UCSF Evidence-based Practice Center provides an infrastructure and focal point for conducting high-quality systematic literature reviews, supplemental syntheses and technology assessments, and generating evidence reports from these efforts. Access to local experts in all components of healthcare decision-making enhances the center's multidisciplinary scope. The center will focus on furthering the practice and translation of evidence-based medicine in the pursuit of improving health outcomes for populations and individuals.

Evidence-based medicine is the defining principle in much of the work of the group of investigators at both institutions. The toolbox of evidence-based medicine includes: systematic review and critical appraisal of the medical literature; clinical epidemiology; biostatistics; health services research; development of clinical guidelines; and supplemental analyses such as meta-analysis, decision analysis, cost-effectiveness analysis. The EPC effort extends current collaborative work in these areas of health services and outcomes research.
