The author, David Eddy, gives a concise summary of the history of the development of the concept of evidence-based medicine.  He makes a good distinction between EBM guidelines and the use of "EBID" ("evidence-based individual decision making").  He proposes the need to unify our approach to these concepts in order to improve the quality of patient care.
