Clinical decision support are mechanisms of your electronic health record (EHR) system that allow you to make better decisions about your patient’s care based on collected information about that patient. If done well, clinical decision support can take your practice to the next level by putting more information at the doctors fingertips at the point of care. Support tools in your EHR are often customizable, so that you can focus on concerns that affect your practice’s unique patient population.
CHITREC assist practices in implementing the best practices possible using electronic clinical decision support tools and workflows. We make sure that Meaningful Use objectives related to decision support are met. Future stages of Meaningful Use will require doctors to move beyond this beginning level of documenting clinic information and start using this information to see better outcomes for patients. At CHITREC, we push our providers to stay ahead of this curve.
