An International PCOR CDS Perspective: The Guideline Implementation with Decision Support Project

Join us for a webinar on Feb 16, 2017 at 11:00 AM EST.

Register now!


Computerized clinical decision support systems (CCDSS) is considered an important quality improvement intervention, and its implementation is growing substantially. However, the significant investments do not consistently result in value for money due to content, context, system and implementation issues. Caution is needed to apply CCDSS in the best possible way. The Guideline Implementation with Decision Support (GUIDES) project currently develops a checklist to support professionals that are responsible for CCDSS initiatives. By promoting thoughtful reflection over the diverse factors that affect CCDSS success, the checklist aims to improve its impact and intends to reduce potentially avoidable failures. The project receives funding from the EU’s Horizon 2020 program (grant agreement No 654981) and will be completed by July 2017. This webinar will discuss the background and methods of the project, the factors that we included to date and how the GUIDES checklist can support the skills of experts while dealing with the complexity of CCDSS. 

This webinar will be presented by:

  • Stijn Van de Velde, PhD who is researcher and GUIDES project leader at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health. Duodecim, MAGIC, McMaster University and University of Leuven are part of the project consortium. An international expert group provides input and feedback on the checklist. 

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.


NOW ONLINE: January 18, 2017 @ 1PM EST: The Transformation of our Health System - Disruptors and Implications for Clinical Decision Support

This webinar, delivered by Bob Greenes, discusses how our healthcare system is transforming to a patient-centered "health system", as a result of many concurrent disruptors. As a consequence, the focus is shifting from practice or enterprise optimization of workflow, costs, and quality, to the so-called quadruple aim of enhancing patient experience, improving population health, reducing costs, and improving the work life of health care providers. This is all viewed in the context of a "learning health system" that continually improves itself, based on new knowledge and feedback of its own performance. Dr. Greenes examines the traditional approaches to delivering computer-based CDS in terms of their prospects and limitations, and introduces some newer approaches that show promise.

NOW ONLINE: December 21, 2016 @ 11AM EST: PCOR Clinical Decision Support Interoperability Standards

One of the key challenges for developing and implementing PCOR CDS is interoperability. This webinar, presented by Dr. Kawamoto, will provide an overview of interoperability frameworks for PCOR Clinical decision Support. The overview will include details on (1) sharing knowledge artifacts, (2) sharing patient-specific inferencing capabilities, and (3) sharing EHR-integrated “apps” with decision support. Dr. Kawamoto will also describe the current state of standards in each of these areas and propose how the PCOR CDS-LN should build upon these efforts to enable scalable CDS for PCOR findings.

NOW ONLINE: November 1, 2016 @ 1PM EDT, Introduction to the PCOR CDS-LN

One of the key objectives of the PCOR CDS Learning Network in the first year has been to provide a forum for stakeholders to assess both barriers and facilitators to implementing PCOR findings in CDS. To this end, the PCOR CDS-LN has developed an ‘Analytic Framework for Action’ (AFA) to facilitate the translation of PCOR-based findings into CDS for clinical practice.

We are excited to announce the launch of our new webinar series. It will kick off with an introduction to the PCOR CDS-LN this coming Tuesday, November 1st. This Webinar will discuss the barriers and facilitators assessed to date and the use of the AFA to identify mitigating actions to improve the authoring, implementation and measurement of PCOR-based CDS in a Learning Network.

This webinar will be presented by:

  • Barry H. Blumenfeld, MD, MS, Principal Investigator, Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Clinical Decision Support Learning Network
