WHAT IS CLINICAL DECISION SUPPORT?

Clinical Decision Support (CDS) is an initiative to enhance the clinical decision-making process with on-demand real-time evidence-based guidance to improve health and healthcare delivery. At MedCurrent, we support our customers to improve quality of care and reduce costs through our innovative and scalable solutions.

ORDERING

 

UNIVERSAL MECHANISM FOR APPROPRIATE USE CRITERIA

OrderWise is designed to incorporate any evidence-based guidelines and adapt to your environment. We appreciate that every organization is unique and may have different needs. As our customer, we will work closely with you to optimize content to your specific requirements. Choose from a variety of content sources or your own local best practice.

 

DEEP EHR INTEGRATION

Provide clinical decision support to your physicians at the point of ordering without ever leaving the EHR environment. The system leverages relevant data from the EHR to inform the CDS process, eliminating redundant steps and highlighting factors that may impact the decision-making process, such as a duplicate orders or contraindications. Two-way communication between OrderWise and your EHR enables the flow of information back into the order details to support downstream workflows.

 

STREAMLINED & CONFIGURABLE PHYSICIAN WORKFLOW

Configure the ordering workflow to suit your organization’s needs and align with organizational policy. The system’s flexibility streamlines provider workflow, drives behavior change, and maximizes the value of CDS for your ordering providers.

EMBEDDED EDUCATION

Support your physicians with relevant, evidence-based content sources when and where they need it in the decision support workflow. Uptake of learning is continuous with OrderWise, leading to a noticeable increase in ordering appropriateness over time.
