Extent of Implementation of Clinical Decision Support in VHA: Results of a National Survey

Doebbeling N, Saleem J, Flanagan E, Yano EM. Extent of Implementation of Clinical Decision Support in VHA: Results of a National Survey. Poster session presented at: VA HSR&D National Meeting; 2008 Feb 13; Baltimore, MD.




Abstract:

Computerized clinical decision support can improve clinician decision-making, support adherence with evidence-based guidelines, and ultimately improve quality of care. Overall, however, the implementation of computerized clinical reminders (CCR) has been slow and not reached its potential. Little data exists regarding the extent of implementation of CCR nationally, particularly within inpatient settings. Our objective was to assess the extent of implementation of CCR in VHA facilities nationally.
