Introduction / Background

Clinical decision support (CDS) systems provide
clinicians, staff, patients, and other individuals with knowledge and
person-specific information, intelligently filtered and presented at
appropriate times, to enhance health and health care. The
Institute of Medicine has long recognized problems with health care quality in
the United States, and for more than a decade has advocated using health
information technology (IT), including electronic CDS, to improve quality.

Since 2004, when the Federal Government promoted the importance of electronic
medical records (EMRs),  there
has been a slow but increasing adoption of health IT. It must be remembered,
though, that these health IT applications are a means to improve health care
quality, not an end in themselves. Further, although Electronic Medical Records (EMRs) with computerized provider order entry (CPOE) can
improve accessibility and legibility of information, it is unlikely that there
will be major improvements in the quality and cost of care from the use of
health IT without proper implementation and use of CDS.1
