There are many approaches to integrating clinical technology but they may not fully support an organization’s automation strategy. Closed, proprietary systems provided by device vendors still limit data portability. Clinical decision support (CDS) algorithms that use this data continue to advance, but adoption is slow and limited by the ability to include all of the necessary data sources. Purchase and implementation costs can restrict access to these newer technologies. This talk will discuss a holistic approach to creating a CDS strategy that leverages clinical technology integration, intelligent data visualization, and efficient use of mobile communication tools. The strategic template draws from the use of standards and best practices drawn from both Healthcare IT and clinical practice at a large, academic medical center.
