For millions of Americans, the heartbreak of watching a loved one struggle with Alzheimer's disease is a pain they know all too well. Alzheimer's disease burdens an increasing number of our Nation's elders and their families, and it is essential that we confront the challenge it poses to our public health.

Although many geriatric prognostic indices have been published, they may be difficult for busy clinicians to remember and use. The goal of ePrognosis (www.eprognosis.org) is to be a repository of validated geriatric prognostic indices for application in clinical and educational settings. The prognostic indices used in ePrognosis are derived from a systematic review of the literature, published by our group in JAMA January 11, 2011. ePrognosis offers a tutorial on how to use prognositic indicators in older adults. It also helps clinicians sort through quality issues of each index through it's use of a novel sorting algorithm. This algorithm uses set criteria to sort the indices by accuracy, generalizability, bias, usability, and clinical efficacy.
