Statement of Purpose

The value of CDS tools, in general, is increasingly recognized; however, gaps remain in understanding interactions between CDS tools and users. Because nurses spend more time with hospitalized patients than any other clinician, many CDS tools could benefit from nurse participation in their design.

Using a participatory design approach, the researchers conducted a study to discover bedside nurses’, charge nurses’, and rapid response team nurses’ preferences for tool design within the context of patient deterioration leading to cardiopulmonary arrest. Resulting themes included “painting a picture” over time, promoting empowerment, and aligning probabilistic information with nurses’ current knowledge.

By weighing these and other findings of this study, clinicians and vendors may consider innovative design elements of a predictive analytics tool that supports rather than interrupts nurses’ cognitive workflow while managing patients at high risk for cardiopulmonary arrest.

Target Audience

The target audience for this activity is professionals and students interested in biomedical and health informatics.

Learning Objective

After this live activity, the participant should be better able to:

  • List at least 2 design elements important for probability-based clinical decision support tools.
  • Incorporate participatory design methods in the development of clinical decision support tools.
