Description: Clinical decision support (CDS) is a term used to describe the use of health information technology to encourage health care providers' adherence to clinical guidelines. These clinical guidelines can include recommended treatment regimens for health conditions of public health concern. The Public Health Informatics Institute, working under cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), has partnered with Apervita to advance CDS for sexually transmitted infections. This webinar will demonstrate how CDC's gonorrhea treatment recommendations were converted into an electronic CDS knowledge artifact that conforms to current interoperability standards, is executable in standards-based CDS engines, is encoded in Clinical Quality Language (CQL), and conforms with appropriate terminology standards.
