Option Grid™ Decision Aids from EBSCO Health Receive Certification from Washington State Health Care Authority
Date:3/20/2019

EBSCO Health, the leading provider of evidence-based clinical resources including Option Grid™ decision aids, has announced the certification of two decision aids by the Washington State Health Care Authority, Amniocentesis Test for Chromosome Problems: Yes or No? and Down Syndrome Screening Test: Yes or No? Currently, Washington is the only state requiring certification for shared decision making content.

Patient decision aids help achieve successful shared decision making by enabling patients to understand and compare their healthcare options, arriving at informed decisions. Option Grid decision aids are interactive and personalized, enabling a tailored presentation of healthcare options that are most relevant to the patient. Content is created using a rigorous editorial process that incorporates the most recent evidence, clinical expertise by editors that have no competing interests, and thorough literature searching, appraisal and synthesis.

EBSCO Health Senior Vice President of Medical Product Management Betsy Jones recognizes the impact of Washington State’s certification program. “Patient decision aids are proven to reduce health care costs, address patient concerns and help encourage positive interactions between patients and clinicians. We’re happy to work with the Washington State Health Care Authority to help enhance the shared decision-making experience within their communities.”

Dr. Glyn Elwyn, BA MD MSc PhD, professor at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College and Option Grid co-founder and editor-in-chief says these new decision aids will support the growing needs of the healthcare community. “Amniocentesis and Down Syndrome screening tests have been identified as areas of importance in Washington State. We are hopeful that these aids will help eliminate unnecessary variation of care and ensure that patients understand the options and evidence for risks and harms.”
