What is clinical decision support?

Clinical Decision Support (CDS) encompasses a variety of technological tools that are designed to provide clinicians with appropriate information that enhances decision making and patient care. Clinical guidelines, diagnostic support, condition-specific order sets, alerts and reminders, patient data reports and summaries, documentation templates, and relevant reference information are all included in clinical decision support.

Why is clinical decision support important?

Clinical Decision Support is integral to improving patient safety by increasing the quality, effectiveness, and efficiency of healthcare. Additionally, CDS offers the benefits of less errors and adverse outcomes, greater cost benefit, efficiency, and satisfaction for both provider and patient, and enhanced health outcomes and increased quality of care. Essentially, Clinical Decision Support helps to ensure that the providers in your practice are performing at their optimum level by providing them the information they need when they need it to make sure they are making the best possible care decisions for their patients.
