Clinical Decision Support (CDS) Workshop

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2020 Time: 10 am – 4:00 pm ET
Zoom

The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) is hosting a one day virtual workshop on Tuesday, September 15, 2020, for Clinical Decision Support (CDS). A central promise of CDS is to help reduce the burden of information overload and increasingly complex clinical knowledge and guidelines posed to clinicians by making information about a patient easier to assess or more apparent, or to foster optimal problem solving, decision making, and action. CDS must also deliver the right information  to the right person in the right format through the right channel at the right time in the workflow.

While CDS is recognized as a way to improve health care and make it more efficient, clinical users’ experiences with implemented CDS have been sub-optimal, and CDS development and deployment remain inconsistent and fraught with re-work, even among HHS agencies.

This workshop will identify novel approaches being used in CDS that present opportunities for collaboration and harmonization. Federal partners and key public stakeholders are invited to attend to learn about the current efforts in CDS and opportunities to leverage federal work to help public efforts, and vice-versa. The expected outcomes include an identification of CDS silos, an understanding of the role of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning in CDS and solutions to address cross agency/stakeholder CDS issues.
