The American College of Physicians released a Web-based clinical decision support tool for internal medicine physicians known as ACP Smart Medicine.

Accessible from desktops, smartphones and tablets, the online tool includes 500 modules with evidence-based content and recommendations for a variety of conditions and diseases. Content is organized in bulleted lists, comparative tables and rated based on its quality. The content will be continually updated based on information from the Annals of Internal Medicine, ACP JournalWise and ACP clinical practice guidelines, and physicians. Dr. Steven Weinberger, the organization's executive VP and CEO, said in a news release that ACP is the first medical society out the gates with a clinical decision support tool. It will be free to the ACP's members and available for purchase by nonmembers.
