The effective care of patients begins with accurate knowledge about the benefits, harms, and appropriate context of clinical interventions. But health care has been slow to move from traditional modes for generating, synthesizing, and sharing knowledge. Much of the current architecture of knowledge generation and dissemination has remained unchanged for decades. Frequently, this means that efforts of primary researchers and systematic reviewers fail to change practice in a timely and effective way.
