Computers Make Emergency Clinical Decisions to Help Doctors

A research published in the Academic Emergency Medicine (AEM) journal in July 2017, states that patients with electronic medical record would now have Clinical Decision Support (CDS) embedded into the system. The main aim of the study is to decrease the overall use of high-cost imaging, which is likely associated to higher utilizers.

Kelly Bookman, the lead author of the paper and Medical director for Department of emergency medicine from the University of Colorado, plays a vital role in the process of making improvised initiatives for the clinical emergency service line. The electronic health record (EHR) is a digital chart recording the patient’s medical history, which give out quick, secure and patient-centric information to authorized users. Dr. Bookman optimized the EHR by developing a CDS and integrating it with the system, for everyday use and in case of emergencies as well.

The study demonstrates the use of embedding CDS into the provider workflow by stating how the use of validated tools is promoted across providers, thus standardizing the delivery of care. This process provides instantaneous, responsive and well-structured guidelines based on pervious evidence.

Dr. Bookman says “Getting CDS delivered at the right time to the right person seamlessly within their workflow is the key to driving compliance with standardized, evidence based, best practices.”

Clinical decision support (CDS) can be used by clinicians, hospital staff, patients and other individuals with knowledge and information related to the patient, intelligently filtering and presenting information at appropriate times, to boost health care.

This system integration will be extensively used to make decisions that would in turn save the lives of many proving to be advantageous to medical health.
