Medscape Best Evidence, powered by the McMaster Online Rating of Evidence ("MORE") program, vastly improves the signal-to-noise ratio in keeping up to date. By employing filters for research quality and clinical relevance, these alerts can shrink the approximate 50,000 articles per year that appear in more than 110 journals and might be relevant to your clinical practice down to a manageable amount that is likely to be truly important to your clinical practice.

All alerts are pre-assessed for scientific merit (based on the criteria for Evidence-Based Medicine and ACP Journal Club) and qualifying articles are then rated by at least three clinicians in each pertinent discipline for relevance to clinical practice and how new or "newsworthy" the information is likely to be to practicing clinicians.
