OBJECTIVES The use of clinical decision support systems (CDSS) can improve the overall safety and quality of health care delivery, but may also introduce machine-related errors. Recent concerns about the potential for CDSS to harm patients have generated much debate, but there is little research available to identify the nature of such errors, or quantify their frequency or clinical impact. METHODS A review of recent literature into electronic prescribing systems, as well as related… Expand
Overview of Clinical Decision Support Systems
TLDR
This chapter will provide an overview of clinical decision support systems, summarize current data on the use and impact of clinical decisions support systems in practice, and provide guidelines for users to consider as these systems begin to be incorporated in commercial systems, and implemented outside the research and development settings. Expand
The changing nature of clinical decision support systems: a focus on consumers, genomics, public health and decision safety.
TLDR
CDSS research remains an active and evolving area of research, as CDSS penetrate more widely beyond their traditional domain into consumer decision support, and as decisions become more complex, for example by involving sequence level genetic data. Expand
Impacts and Risks of Adopting Clinical Decision Support Systems
The development of interoperable Healthcare Information Systems such as Electronic Health Record (EHR), Electronic Medical Record (EMR), and Personal Health Record (PHR) has created a platformExpand
Impact of electronic health record systems on information integrity: quality and safety implications.
  • Sue E Bowman
  • Business, Medicine
  • Perspectives in health information management
  • 2013
TLDR
This analysis of the literature on EHR risks is intended to serve as an impetus for further research on the prevalence of these risks, their impact on quality and safety of patient care, and strategies for reducing them. Expand
Decision support systems for antibiotic prescribing
TLDR
The reemerging interest in prescribing decision support reflects the recent change in emphasis from support for diagnostic decisions towards support for patient management and from systems targeting a broad range of clinical diagnoses to task-specific and condition-specific decision aids. Expand
Modeling information flows in clinical decision support: key insights for enhancing system effectiveness
TLDR
This article presents a two-stream model of information flow within clinical decision-support systems (CDSSs): reasoning about the patient (the clinical stream), and Reasoning about the user (the cognitive-behavioral stream) and proposes that CDSS "effectiveness" be measured not only in terms of a system's impact on clinical care, but also in Terms of how the system is used, its effect on work processes, and whether it facilitates appropriate decisions by clinicians and patients. Expand
The role of standardized data and terminological systems in computerized clinical decision support systems: Literature review and survey
TLDR
A literature review of clinical decision support systems found many CDSSs applied different terminological systems to code data and diversity hampers the possibility of sharing and reasoning with data within different systems. Expand
Tailoring implementation strategies for evidence-based recommendations using computerised clinical decision support systems: protocol for the development of the GUIDES tools
TLDR
This project will provide guidance and tools on methods of identifying implementation determinants and selecting strategies to implement evidence-based recommendations through CCDSS and make the GUIDES tools available toCCDSS developers, implementers, researchers, funders, clinicians, managers, educators, and policymakers internationally. Expand
Health IT for Patient Safety and Improving the Safety of Health IT.
TLDR
Safety can be improved with greater standardization of clinical software and by improving the quality of processes at different points in the technology life cycle, spanning design, build, implementation and use in clinical settings. Expand
Automation bias: a systematic review of frequency, effect mediators, and mitigators
TLDR
By uncovering the mechanisms by which AB operates, this review aims to help optimize the clinical decision-making process for CDSS developers and healthcare practitioners. Expand

Effects of computerized clinical decision support systems on practitioner performance and patient outcomes: a systematic review.
TLDR
Improvement in practitioner performance was associated with CDSSs that automatically prompted users compared with requiring users to activate the system and studies in which the authors were not the developers, as well as other factors. Expand
Effects of computer-based clinical decision support systems on physician performance and patient outcomes: a systematic review.
TLDR
The CDSSs can enhance clinical performance for drug dosing, preventive care, and other aspects of medical care, but not convincingly for diagnosis. Expand
Computerized physician order entry and medication errors: Finding a balance
  • D. Bates
  • Medicine, Computer Science
  • J. Biomed. Informatics
  • 2005
TLDR
A main limitation of Koppel et al s study is that it did not count errors or adverse events, but instead measured only perceptions of errors, which may or may not correlate with actual error rates. Expand
Viewpoint Paper: Some Unintended Consequences of Information Technology in Health Care: The Nature of Patient Care Information System-related Errors
TLDR
With a heightened awareness of these issues, informaticians can educate, design systems, implement, and conduct research in such a way that they might be able to avoid the unintended consequences of these subtle silent errors. Expand
Enhancement of clinicians' diagnostic reasoning by computer-based consultation: a multisite study of 2 systems.
TLDR
The idea that "hands-on" use of diagnostic DSSs can influence diagnostic reasoning of clinicians is supported, and the larger effect for students suggests a possible educational role for these systems. Expand
Physicians' decisions to override computerized drug alerts in primary care.
TLDR
Few physicians changed their prescription in response to a drug allergy or interaction alert, and there were few ADEs, suggesting that the threshold for alerting was set too low. Expand
Prescribing safety features of general practice computer systems: evaluation using simulated test cases
TLDR
A laboratory based evaluation of safety features for prescribing of the four main computing systems used in UK primary care found that they do not prevent contraindicated prescribing. Expand
Research Paper: A Trial of Automated Safety Alerts for Inpatient Digoxin Use with Computerized Physician Order Entry
TLDR
Overall, the alerts improved the safe use of digoxin and supplementation for hypokalemia and hypomagnesemia were not as effective as those given at the time of newly reported low electrolytes. Expand
Role of computerized physician order entry systems in facilitating medication errors.
TLDR
It is found that a leading CPOE system often facilitated medication error risks, with many reported to occur frequently, in addition to errors that they prevent. Expand
Research Paper: Do clinicians use online evidence to support patient care? a study of 55, 000 clinicians
TLDR
Clinicians' online evidence use increases with patient admissions, supporting the hypothesis that clinicians' use of evidence is related to direct patient care and patterns of evidence use and clinicians' self-reports also support this hypothesis. Expand
