On October 26, 2019, CERTAIN (Checklist for Early Recognition and Treatment of Acute Illness and iNjury / Early Critical Identification and Overall Management) co-sponsored by the Department of Critical Care of Peking University and the Mayo METRIC team of the United States The course was held in the China Science and Technology Hall as scheduled and successfully completed.
CERTAIN is a global research and quality improvement program led by doctors and researchers at the Mayo Clinic. It aims to standardize and standardize the diagnosis and treatment of acute and severe diseases, minimizing the occurrence of death, disability and serious complications. Patient safety. Ognjen Gajic, MD, director of the Mayo METRIC and CERTAIN International Program, pointed out that “the first few hours of acute and severe illnesses entering the medical system are essential – errors and delays in prime time can lead to serious consequences. CERTAIN provides a basis for Evidence-based medical checklists, guided practice support, and standard processes of implementation, while guiding, timing, and recording real-time interventions, providing the most effective assistance in prime time."


The CERTAIN method has been applied to 55 hospitals and 10 paediatric hospitals worldwide. It has been proven to significantly improve the clinical management level of acute and serious medical workers, thus effectively reducing mortality, shortening the treatment cycle and reducing hospital expenditure. In order to promote the promotion and implementation of the CERTAIN method around the world, the Mayo team developed the CERTAIN software in conjunction with Ambient Clinical Analytics (hereinafter referred to as Ambient Clinical).
Based on the internationalization of Dr. Zhang Jiwu, the CEO of Mijian Medical, he learned about CERTAIN in the research exchange and determined his intention to introduce it into the country. He said: "We hope that the majority of medical workers, especially the grassroots, can pass CERTAIN. This platform strengthens the standard of diagnosis and treatment, improves the professional level, and ultimately benefits more people's health. This is the mission of Mijian Medical."

Mijian Medical signed a cooperation agreement with Ambient Clinical on October 18, 2017
With the support of all parties, the Department of Critical Care of Peking University and the Mayo team jointly hosted the CERTAIN course during the 11th Peking University Critical Care Medicine Forum, which not only introduced the core concept of Mayo's acute and severe patient management to domestic medical work.

In the afternoon, Professor Philippe R. Bauer of the Mayo team introduced the humanized ICU, the CERTAIN method for joint decision-making, and then the three mentors of the Mayo team made quality improvement and simulation teaching, clinical research, and clinical informatics. report.



Finally, the Chinese expert group and the Mayo team conducted an expert discussion on the topic “Case Discussion of Common Challenges and Responses in ICU Practice”.


The exchanges and discussions in the expert discussion sessions were very enthusiastic. Director An Youzhong pointed out that with the rapid development of technology, medical care has entered the era of information explosion, and acute medical workers face enormous challenges – from massive clinical data. Screen out information that is helpful for patient care. The list is the concise information, is a summary of clinical knowledge and experience, it can help medical workers standardize the diagnosis and treatment process, avoid randomness, thus ensuring patient safety, so CERTAIN's inventory management concept is in the era of information explosion And born". Finally, Director An Youzhong summarized the meaning of CERTAIN as three points:
1. See you at a small height;
2. The details are the devil;
