The Transformation of our Health System - Disruptors and Implications for Clinical Decision Support

When: Wednesday, Jan 18, 2017, 1:00PM - 2:00PM

Our healthcare system is transforming to a patient-centered "health system", as a result of many concurrent disruptors. As a consequence, the focus is shifting from practice or enterprise optimization of workflow, costs, and quality, to the so-called quadruple aim of enhancing patient experience, improving population health, reducing costs, and improving the work life of health care providers. This is all viewed in the context of a "learning health system" that continually improves itself, based on new knowledge and feedback of its own performance. 

The transformation is a work in progress, with uncertain timelines, but appears to be gathering sufficient momentum to be inevitable. Clinical decision support (CDS) opportunities should be viewed in terms of how they can address and facilitate the transformation and the operation of a future highly integrated health system. We will examine the traditional approaches to delivering computer-based CDS in terms of their prospects and limitations, and introduce some newer approaches that show promise.
