• Clinical Decision Support Working Group

    The purpose of Clinical Decision Support Working Group is to gather AMIA members sharing an interest in clinical decision support for in-person and electronic discussions, share ideas and experiences in this area, and help organize clinical decision support activities at AMIA meetings.

Clinical Decision Support

Clinical decision support is used by clinicians, patients, and other stakeholders through the use of knowledge, procecesses, and inference, to support decisions-makers in clinical, administrative, and managerial activities to improve the quality of health care services and outcomes [1,2].

After many year's growth in AMIA's work in clinical informatics, a group of members convened by the AMIA President to coordinate AMIA decision support activities proposed the formation of a Clinical Decision Support Working Group (CDS-WG). The purpose of this Working Group (WG) is to provide a forum for  AMIA members sharing an interest in clinical decision support (CDS) for in-person and electronic discussion to share ideas and experiences, and  to help organize clinical decision support activities at AMIA meetings.  Specific activities for the CDS-WG include:

  • Serve as a discussion and collaboration hub for AMIA members who are interested in clinical decision support.
  • Develop mechanisms for WG members to participate in discussions, which may include emails, forums, blogs, and other means.
  • Produce panel presentations, tutorials, research papers, white papers, and other content based artifacts of value to the AMIA community.
  • Identify CDS opportunities for AMIA in partnership with governmental, academic, and industry organizations through CDS-WG discussions, meetings, and workshops.
  • Provide a collective voice for CDS-WG members to way in on matters of policy relevant to CDS.
  • Harness AMIA member experience and expertise in CDS to help achieve AMIA’s goal to improve health through health information technology.
