Title Grand challenges in clinical decision support
Description This article lists the top 10 grand challenges in clinical decision support. It was created to educate and inspire researchers, developers, funders, and policy-makers. The list shows the challenges in order of importance that they be solved if patients and organizations are to begin realizing the fullest benefits possible of these systems. The list includes: improve the human–computer interface; disseminate best practices in CDS design, development, and implementation; summarize patient-level information; prioritize and filter recommendations to the user; create an architecture for sharing executable CDS modules and services; combine recommendations for patients with co-morbidities; prioritize CDS content development and implementation; create internet-accessible clinical decision support repositories; use free-text information to drive clinical decision support; and mine large clinical databases to create new CDSs. The identification of solutions to these challenges is crucial if clinical decision support is to achieve its potential and improve the quality, safety and efficiency of health care.
