About the Centre for Health Evidence
The Centre for Health Evidence (CHE) is a not-for-profit organization based at the University of Alberta. We are dedicated to helping health organizations and associations find and apply best evidence in daily practice. We work on a project basis, and use a variety of communication and information technologies to create decision support tools and services.
In 2012, the Centre for Health Evidence (CHE) collaborated with the University of Alberta to form a new University of Alberta affiliated enterprise called Qwogo Inc.. CHE continues to support partners and clients under this new organizational framework.
The Centre for Health Evidence was established to help patients, practitioners, and policy makers:
Know what to do
because quality knowledge resources are assembled, integrated and packaged using simple, user-specific, Internet desktops
Do what is known
because online aids help users assess problems, ask questions, and acquire, appraise, and apply knowledge
Understand what is done
because information use is monitored and managed
The Centre for Health Evidence (CHE) will lead the way for health service providers toward unparalleled excellence in decision support, learning enhancement, practice-based evidence, and innovative research.
The Centre for Health Evidence is proud to be part of the University of Alberta.
