(About ePSS at http://epss.ahrq.gov/ePSS/index.jsp The ePSS is a quick, hands-on tool designed to help primary care clinicians identify and offer the screening, counseling, and preventive medicine services that are appropriate for their patients. The ePSS is based on the current, evidence-based recommendations of the USPSTF and can be searched by specific patient characteristics, such as age, sex, and selected behavioral risk factors. Available both as a Web-based selector and as a downloadable PDA application, the ePSS brings the prevention information clinicians need recommendations, clinical considerations, and selected practice tools to the point of care.
