BackgroundClinical practice guidelines give recommendations about what to do in various medical situations, including therapeutical recommendations for drug prescription. An effective way to computerize these recommendations is to design critiquing decision support systems, i.e. systems that criticize the physician's prescription when it does not conform to the guidelines. These systems are commonly based on a list of "if conditions then criticism" rules. However, writing these rules from the…

Towards evidence-based CDSSs implementing the medical reasoning contained in CPGs: application to antibiotic prescription
TLDR
A new approach to the construction of clinical decision support systems (CDSS) is proposed, making use of the evidence-based medical reasoning used by experts in CPGs to retrieve the recommendations for antibiotic prescription for empirical treatment in primary care.
An Algorithm Using Twelve Properties of Antibiotics to Find the Recommended Antibiotics, as in CPGs
TLDR
A new approach to the design of CDSS for empiric antibiotic prescription is proposed, based on implementation of the deeper medical reasoning used by experts in the development of clinical practice guidelines (CPGs), to deduce the recommended antibiotics.
Clinical practice guidelines to inform evidence-based clinical practice
TLDR
An overview of clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) is provided, focusing on their justification, creation, improvement, and use.
A Generic System for Critiquing Physicians' Prescriptions: Usability, Satisfaction and Lessons Learnt
TLDR
The results of usability and satisfaction evaluations for the ASTI critiquing module are presented, obtained with GPs for a newly implemented guideline concerning dyslipaemia, and the lessons learnt and the difficulties encountered when building a generic DSS for Critiquing physicians' prescriptions are discussed.
Computerized Drug Prescription Decision Support
TLDR
This chapter first introduces the different medication errors, and ways of operating CDSSs are described, from the totally automated alert-based mode, to various documentary approaches where the user navigates through a structured knowledge base.
Transforming Clinical Practice Guideline Usage Through the Use of a Clinical Decision Support System: An Explorative Study at the University Medical Centre Utrecht
TLDR
Data analysis shows that many of the included CPGs overlap and that the utilization of a CDSS for the determination of anti-clotting medicine and treatments could result in more effective and efficient decision making.
Transforming Clinical Practice Guideline Usage Through the Use of a Clinical Decision Support System: An Explorative Study at the University Medical Centre Utrecht
TLDR
Data analysis shows that many of the included CPGs overlap and that the utilization of a CDSS for the determination of anti-clotting medicine and treatments could result in more effective and efficient decision making.
Evidence-based primary care treatment guidelines for skin infections in Europe: A comparative analysis
TLDR
The need to collect more national resistance data (particularly regarding beta-lactams) is highlighted to create stronger evidence-based treatment guidelines for skin infections in Europe and highlight a lack of relevant national data on resistance.
Evidence-based clinical decision support.
TLDR
CDS, when used well, can be effective, but further research is needed for it to reach its full potential.

ASTI: A Guideline-based Drug-Ordering System for Primary Care
TLDR
The ASTI project aims to design a guideline-based ordering system to enable general practitioners to avoid prescription errors and to improve compliance with best therapeutic practices.
Representing the Patient's Therapeutic History in Medical Records and in Guideline Recommendations for Chronic Diseases Using a Unique Model
TLDR
This model is capable for representing guideline recommendations in several domains of chronic diseases, and can be used to store the patient's therapeutic history in the EMR, together with other attributes such as treatment efficacy and tolerance.
Using model checking for critiquing based on clinical guidelines
Effect of clinical guidelines on medical practice: a systematic review of rigorous evaluations.
TLDR
It is concluded that explicit guidelines do improve clinical practice, when introduced in the context of rigorous evaluations, however, the size of the improvements in performance varied considerably.
Design of a Decision Support System for Chronic Diseases Coupling Generic Therapeutic Algorithms with Guideline-Based Specific Rules
TLDR
