CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Bridging the Gap for Patient-facing CDS

March 12, 2019 - 4:21pm

This year, the AHRQ Patient-Centered Clinical Decision Support (CDSinfo-icon) Learning Network is focusing on using patient-facing CDS to improve care delivery and outcomes. To support this effort, we will be forming a Patient-facing CDS Demonstration Working Group (PFWG) focusing on issues related to the development and implementation of standards-based, patient-facing CDS applications such as apps delivered through phones. The Working Group will 1) develop a prototype patient-facing CDS app and 2) develop design guidelines to broadly assist in the development of patient-facing CDS applications. The Work Group is expected to meet approximately once every 2 weeks via teleconference. 

Deliverables for the Working Group will include:

  1. a prototype patient-facing CDS tool, with a goal of integration with commercial EHRinfo-icon platforms,
  2. a description of the requirements needed to build a patient-facing CDS app that adheres to human-centered usability guidelines, and 
  3. recommendations and potential solutions based on identified barriers and facilitators.

The starting point for this work will be the functional and technical requirements for opioid patient-centered CDS previously developed by other Learning Network Working Groups.

We are specifically seeking volunteer members who have interest, insights, and ideally personal or institutional commitment to resources that can help identify and overcome technical and design barriers to widespread patient-centered CDS implementation and value.  

If you are interested in participating in this work, please complete this brief member profile: provide some basic information on your background, interest, and availability.
