Integrating Evidence-Based Decision Tools Within an EHR

10:30am - 11:30am Thursday, March 8
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
Murano 3304

Description

The healthcare industry recognizes the critical role that evidence-based medicine (EBM) plays in improving health outcomes and lowering costs. The use of clinical decision support (CDS) tools incorporating EBM at the point of care provides physicians with easy access to translational research and current recommendations. Kaiser Permanente recently completed a large-scale, electronic health record (EHR)-based integration of CDS tools including access to prescriptive/predictive analytics, a prescription formulary, treatment algorithms, and evidence-based disability guidelines. This session will describe the process of picking and deploying CDS tools incorporating evidence-based guidelines within a large-scale, EHR system. Physician perspectives and usage of the CDS tool will be discussed. Finally, the speakers will present trends in quality of care metrics attributed to the adoption of CDS tools at the point of care.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Recognize current challenges to the adoption and consistent use of evidence-based practices across the healthcare industry
  • Describe the process of deploying clinical decision support tools incorporating evidence-based guidelines within a large-scale, EHR system
  • Discuss physician perspectives of the clinical decision support tools prior and after implementation
  • Quantify longitudinal trends in usage and loss work time after clinical decision support integration
