Psych Evidence Matters (Psych EM) is a mental health knowledge management system designed to help choose the best therapy options for a specific psychiatric patient with a confirmed diagnosis.
Research results are peer-reviewed and organized in an evidence-based manner into summary graphs or tables, based on therapy effectiveness, safety, and cost.

  • Psych EM answers questions on the effectiveness, safety, and costs of therapy options for a particular mental health patient, in an evidence-based manner.
  • Psych EM creates patient-customized answers via summarized, instant meta-graphs of all current research and best mental health practices from thousands of peer-reviewed journals.
  • The system is updated on a daily basis, based on new research.
  • Results may be customized for many factors, such as patient age, sex, and other demographics, as well as co-morbidities or medication intolerance.
  • Harvard and McGill-associated teaching hospital libraries are early test centers for the medical Evidence Matters, which is now in use by over 10 different nations worldwide.
