Clinical Decision Support: Why the Right Data is Needed to Drive the Right Outcomes

A generic data analytics dashboard
Data driven decisions drive better patient outcomes.

At CentiBlick we believe that access to better data in larger quantities allows hospitals and health systems to provide the highest quality of care possible.

Whether it be data that is relevant to clinical decision support or workforce management, CentiBlick allows hospitals and health systems to manage their practice from a data driven bird’s-eye view.

"Today’s providers are faced with an onslaught of data about each patient – from traditional diagnostic labs and imaging studies to expert interpretations in clinical notes and biometric data captures from patients in the home. Advanced CDSS (Clinical Decision Support Systems) are designed to take in all of these data sources, analyze the inputs, and present insights to providers to inform decision-making. The insights derived are intelligently curated by the CDSS and presented at the right time in the clinical workflow – often at the point of care – to enhance patient care and outcomes. For example, CDSS can identify divergence from standard of care treatment, such as prescribing a medication class shown to have superior benefit for a specific patient cohort, and provide recommendations for clinicians to consider. The systems can also offer computerized alerts and reminders to both patients and providers, with condition and context-specific diagnostic recommendations or expert assessment needs, while highlighting both the patient characteristics driving the notification and the reference data behind the recommendation. To date, CDSS have typically been deployed through EHR solutions, but challenges arise when software systems primarily designed as databases and billing systems are stretched to become clinical workflow optimization engines. One problem in particular is alert fatigue. Providers can receive so many alerts from their various systems, including low-value ones that do not enhance care, which wastes valuable time and contributes to the burnout they’re already experiencing." - Lucienne Marie Ide
