Clinician Satisfaction: Digitalizing ID Clinical Guidelines

3:00pm - 4:00pm Tuesday, February 12
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center


Given the challenges with addressing global infectious diseases, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Service's Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and infectious disease subject matter experts are focused upon digitalizing clinical guidelines to optimize EHRs with evidence-based algorithms aligned with the guidelines to aid providers in decision making. These algorithms, used within certified EHR workflow, aid in prompt and appropriate clinical decision support response, intervention and translation for collaboration of care across the interprofessional team. Some drawbacks to the execution of new algorithms are the importance of developing it quickly, especially in times of public health crisis, but also keeping them useful to clinicians without contributing to increased user dissatisfaction. This session highlights new efforts to improve CDS in regards to existing and emerging infectious diseases with a strong focus on clinician satisfaction.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Define the process for development and build of a new clinical decision support workflow
  • List the pros and cons of a clinical decisions support system within an electronic health record in regards to the demonstrated enhanced process (i.e., Tuberculosis CDS)
  • Identify methods used to include clinicians in the CDS development and validation process for an enhanced infectious disease process
