Information Systems, Decision Support, Clinical

Definition : Decision support systems designed to assist healthcare facilities in making clinical decisions for enhanced patient care. These systems typically consist of a combination of hardware and software. The hardware typically includes dedicated network servers and computers; the software consists of a dedicated software package that allows merging a wide array of health data, including everything from simple facts to detailed health knowledge with clinical observations. The systems may also utilize advanced information such as new medical knowledge from clinical research, including methods for caring for patients in specific disease states. Clinical decision support systems (CDSS) are usually run in either an active or passive mode. In active mode, the CDSS will process information in the background and alert health professionals when the data indicates a need for intervention. In passive mode, the system will advise only when it is requested by the user using specific inputs. Successful active and passive CDSS will interface with existing electronic medical records and medical knowledge databases to provide the most detailed and accurate information.
