The Technology Landscape of Patient-Centered Clinical Decision Support - Where Are We and What Is Needed?

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

Patient Centered Outcomes Research (PCOR) and health care delivery system transformation require investments in development of tools and techniques for rapid dissemination of clinical and operational best practices. This paper explores the current technology landscape for patient-centered clinical decision support (PC CDS) and what is needed to make it more shareable, standards-based, and publicly available with the goal of improving patient care and clinical outcomes. The landscape assessment used three sources of information: (1) a 22-member technical expert panel; (2) a literature review of peer-reviewed and grey literature; and (3) key informant interviews with PC CDS stakeholders. We identified ten salient technical considerations that span all phases of PC CDS development; our findings suggest there has been significant progress in the development and implementation of PC CDS but challenges remain.
