A National Repository of Widely Shareable, Computable CDS

10:30am - 11:30am Thursday, March 8
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
Delfino 4004

Description

CDS Connect is an AHRQ-sponsored project to collect, build, store and make available a wide range of Clinical Decision Support (CDS) artifacts in both human-readable and computable forms. Clinicians, patients, quality leaders and others can browse, search, and access artifacts to download and implement in their clinical IT environment. This session will demonstrate the CDS Connect Repository, describe its pilot use at a Federally Qualified Health Center in the domain of cholesterol management, and discuss the role of a community-driven, online repository in accelerating the transformation of evidence into practical, implementable, CDS. The project is led by the CMS Alliance to Modernize Healthcare, a federally-funded R&D center operated by The MITRE Corporation.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Evaluate the pros and cons of shareable CDS which can be held and maintained in a common repository
  • Recognize how to transform clinical guideline statements into precise, computable CDS
  • Explain key considerations in authoring, searching, and accessing publicly-available CDS
  • Apply CDS from a standard source for use in your own HIT environment
  • Discriminate among similar but conflicting guidance when choosing CDS for your own organization
