The most common definition of Evidence Based Medicine (EBM) is taken from Dr. David Sackett. EBM is "the conscientious, explicit and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of the individual patient. It means integrating individual clinical expertise with the best available external clinical evidence from systematic research" (Sackett D, 1996). It aims to apply evidence gained from the scientific method to certain parts of medical practice. It seeks to assess the quality of evidence (Institute of Medicine).

Studies of information-seeking habits of physicians, have shown that when asked, physicians reported that their practice generated about 2 questions for every 3 patients. Only 30% of physicians' information needs were met during the patient visit, usually by a colleague. Reasons for not using printed resources included office textbook collections too old, lack of knowledge of appropriate resources, and lack of time to find the needed information (Covell DG, 1995).

However, studies have also shown that when clinicians have access to information, it changes their patient care management decisions.
