EBP also helps healthcare organizations reduce medical errors by providing guidance on how best to diagnose and treat patients. Research has shown that EBP can improve adherence to best practices which can lead to better clinical outcomes. Improved compliance with recommended treatments may also decrease unnecessary costs while still providing the highest level of care possible. In addition, EBP encourages shared decision making between professionals and patients which increases patient engagement in their own treatment plan leading to improved satisfaction and adherence rates as well as better overall health outcomes for both individuals and populations.
Finally, engaging in EBP can be beneficial for provider well-being by allowing them more time for leisure activities outside of work due to increased efficiency from following established protocols instead of conducting additional tests or services unnecessarily. In addition, greater job satisfaction often results from knowing you are providing quality care informed by the most up-to date evidence available which is a key component of the Quadruple Aim .
In summary, Evidence Based Practice is an important tool that should be actively utilized by healthcare organizations striving towards achieving all four components of the Quadruple Aim: improved experience/outcomes; reduced costs; enhanced staff well-being;and improved population health.
