Webinar on PCOR Clinical Decision Support Interoperability Standards Delivered December 21, 2016

On December 21, 2016, Kensaku Kawamoto, MD, PhD, MHS, PCCDS-LN Steering Committee member, led a national webinar presenting an overview of interoperability frameworks for PCOR Clinical decision Support. It included details on (1) sharing knowledge artifacts, (2) sharing patient-specific inferencing capabilities, and (3) sharing EHR-integrated “apps” with decision support. Dr. Kawamoto also described the current state of standards in each of these areas and proposed how the PCCDS-LN should build upon these efforts to enable scalable CDS for PCOR findings. A future webinar in January 2017 will examine the evolution of CDS.  Information on upcoming webinars is available on the PCCDS-LN web site (www.pcorcds-ln.org/webinars), and this webinar can be replayed at: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/6744090242823131649.
