Achieving success with open source clinical decision support technology

Clinical decision support (CDS) is a top priority for many healthcare organizations, but it can be challenging to implement a solution that pulls together the massive amount of patient data available for actionable insights or at the point of care. Development and access to suggestions and reports must also be configurable by the clinician or caregiver with little or no intervention from the organization's IT department.

The clinical decision support engine, developed by Vipul Kashyap, can help identify clinical conditions along with their attributes (e.g., stage), and estimate risk factors (e.g., of readmission). The system, built on an open source architecture from Red Hat, uses decision model and notation (DMN), which enables clinical informaticists and business analysts to specify requirements and create executable CDS models.

Join our webinar where we’ll discuss:

  • What open source CDS is and why it’s important.
  • Challenges with other CDS tools.
  • Best practices for developing and customizing recommendations for CDS.
  • Achieving successful adoption rates.

Live-event date: Tuesday, December 11, 2018 | 1 p.m. ET
