Introducing the electronic Preventive Services Selector Widget

Research Activities, September 2010, No. 361

Access recommendations of the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) at the click of a button—introducing the electronic Preventive Services Selector Widget! The electronic Preventive Services Selector (ePSS) is an application designed to help primary care clinicians identify the screening, counseling, and preventive medication services that are appropriate for their patients. The ePSS widget provides easy and free access to these clinical preventive service recommendations from the USPSTF.

A widget is an online tool that can be easily added to any Web site or blog. Embedding a short amount of Web-based code will add the widget to your site and content will be automatically updated. It's easy, fun, and can be used over and over again!

You can find out more about the evidence-based recommendations of the USPSTF at: U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) and Electronic Preventive Services Selector (ePSS) .
