The article details many resources which have been developed for personal digital assistants (PDAs) to provide evidence at the point of care. Ebm2go is a resource developed for use on Palms and Pocket PCs to help clinicians meet this challenge. Although its target audience is not explicitly stated on the Web site, it appears to be aimed at family physicians and general internists. Ebm2go is divided into 4 sections: Formulary, Guidelines, Evidence, and Tools. The Formulary section contains some Canadian provincial drug benefit formularies, including those from Ontario. The information is limited to drugs contained in these formularies and relevant access codes for prescribing.
