Another take on clinical decision support

I’ve been on a mini kick for clinical decision support since last fall’s AMIA annual conference. If you recall, I said medical informatics needed a rock star to spread the word about the link between CDS and proper implementation of electronic health records.

Today, while attempting to catch up on a massive backlog of e-mail, I came across a Jan. 26 post from Steve Beller, Ph.D., on the Trusted.MD blog network. Beller writes about including consumer-centric cognitive support in the next generation of CDS systems, and he has started to put together a PowerPoint presentation on defining his goal and thoughts on how to achieve it.

I’d love to hear your thoughts.
