CDS in the Cloud: Deploying a CDC Guideline for National Use
3:00pm - 4:00pmThursday, March 8
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
This session will show the ability to deliver clinical decision support at scale – to numerous web service endpoints, and via SMART on FHIR applications. For this demonstration, we will describe how complex clinical logic is abstracted from a clinical guideline and represented in CQL as a component of a knowledge framework. The demonstration shows the feasibility and value of employing collaborative web-services and standards-based APIs providing clinical decision support in the form of externalized knowledge-based web services. A clinical scenario will be presented showing the system in use for an outpatient encounter. A brief description of the authoring tools used will be given. Attention will be drawn to the current state of the art, and suggestions offered for future standards harmonization and vendor support for standards-based APIs.
