Optimizing Strategies for Clinical Decision Support: Summary of a Meeting Series

November 14, 2017

As a result of a collaboration between the NAM and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, this NAM Special Publication summarizes and builds upon a meeting series in which a multistakeholder group of experts explored the potential of clinical decision support (CDS) to transform care delivery by ameliorating the burden that expanding clinical knowledge and care and choice complexity place on the finite time and attention of clinicians, patients, and members of the care team. This summary also includes highlights from discussions to address the barriers to realizing the full benefits of CDS-facilitated value improvement.  

 This document identifies the need for a continuously learning health system driven by the seamless and rapid generation, processing, and practical application of the best available evidence for clinical decision-making, and lays out a series of actionable collaborative next steps to optimize strategies for adoption and use of clinical decision support.
