HIMSS Clinical Decision
Support Task Force is
opening its CDS Wiki
to the public
To help realize the promise of clinical decision support to enable meaningful EMR use and widely improve care delivery and outcomes, the HIMSS Clinical Decision Support Task Force is opening its CDS Wiki to the public.

CDS interventions provide patients and clinicians with information needed to support care decisions. Examples include alerts about dangerous drug interactions or allergies, order sets that help ensure appropriate tests and treatments are ordered, and reference information to answer questions about drugs and diseases. When implemented properly, CDS is a powerful tool for improving care quality, safety and cost.

The CDS Task Force, with six health systems consisting of 50 hospitals, originally established the wiki as a closed forum. Initial efforts have focused on synthesizing best practices for implementing CDS to address specific clinical performance improvement imperatives - starting with venous thromboembolism prevention. Now, the task force hopes to bring in additional participants in this activity and other task force efforts. These include clarifying how implementers can apply CDS to achieving meaningful use; for example, by highlighting and enhancing pertinent guidance in Improving medication use and outcomes, and other resources.
