Clinical Decision Support 2011: Understanding the Impact
February 28, 2012, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CST
Coray Tate, VP Clinical Research, and Colin Buckley, Clinical Strategic Operations Manager, KLAS, Orem, UT, share findings from a recent study on clinical decision support (CDS). Many providers are leveraging information technology at a higher level to manage patient care and improve the quality of care, especially in light of recent healthcare reform. Stage 1 of meaningful use lays a solid electronic infrastructure, but that is really a starting point. By itself, an EMR simply does not mean better care any more than a good road means no accidents. Similar to the adoption of a GPS by motorists, CDS tools are emerging to help healthcare providers navigate complex care situations and drive the type of positive clinical outcomes that organizations and patients want. This teleconference examines the tools providers are using and explains the impact those tools are having on patient care.
