How do I attach codes to my PICO?

There are 2 places to add codes from various ontologies to your PICO questions.

One place is in the Outcome description directly, the Column 1 in the outcome. 

The other place is under the PICO tab called codes.
Both places have direct search into the Bioportal ontology service from Stanford

Adding Codes will enable the recommendations to be linked and searched for with greater possibilities and precision. It is also paramount for the possibilities of making a multiple comparison table. 
These codes could be used by software like EMRs for linking recommendations to patients condition list.

We are currently exploring together with Cochrane how these codes could be used to search for new evidence and relevant Cochrane reviews.
