Wiley-Blackwell and U. of Penn Health System's Center for Evidence-Based Practice launch InfoPOEMs

Hoboken, NJ, December 4, 2007 Wiley-Blackwell, the scientific, technical, medical, and scholarly publishing business of John Wiley & Sons, Inc. (NYSE: JWa), (NYSE: JWb), today announced an agreement with the University of Pennsylvania Health Systems Center for Evidence-Based Practice (CEP) to provide InfoPOEMs with InfoRetriever to University of Pennsylvania Health System-employed primary health physicians starting on November 1, 2007.

InfoPOEMs (Patient-Oriented Evidence that Matters) are summaries of evidence-based medical (EBM) research filtered from more than 120 leading peer-reviewed journals that are graded for validity and relevance to patient outcomes. POEMs are delivered daily via e-mail. Approximately one in 40 eligible studies is converted into a POEM and each POEM is peer reviewed prior to publication.

InfoRetriever is a web-based software tool that enables access to EBM resources at the clinical point-of-care. Available via desktop computers and Personal Digital Assistants, InfoRetriever includes a suite of databases, including InfoPOEMs, Cochrane Database Abstracts, Guideline Summaries, Clinical Decision Rules, and 5-Minute Clinical Consult; more than 3000 calculators, including Diagnostic Test, History, and Physical Exam Accuracy Calculators; and additional tools.

Evidence-based medicine is vital to advancing patient care and increasing clinical efficiency, said Shawn Morton, Wiley-Blackwell Vice President and Publishing Director, Medicine. The partnership with CEP enables us to deliver our integrated online decision support system to a larger number of physicians who will benefit from our unique functionality and trusted content.

CEP creates a forum for promoting the development of evidence-based clinical practices and policies that span the whole health system, said Craig A. Umscheid, CEP Co-Director and Assistant Professor of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. We will use InfoPOEMs and InfoRetriever to support the practice of evidence-based medicine at the point of primary care.

Wiley-Blackwell will relaunch in January 2008 an enhanced version of InfoPOEMs with InfoRetriever under the new name Essential Evidence Plus. In addition to InfoPOEMs and InfoRetriever, Essential Evidence Plus will incorporate two new content resourcesEBM Guidelines and e-Essential Evidencewhich will greatly augment existing product features and content and provide primary-care clinicians with access to the most extensive source of evidence-based medical information currently available for use at the point-of-care.

Wiley acquired InfoPOEM, Inc., a provider of evidence-based medical content and web-based search tools, in October 2005.
