Description

Abstract: The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) has launched an ambitious multi-component initiative with two primary aims: to accelerate the movement of evidence into practice through clinical decision support (CDS) and to bring CDS closer to becoming more shareable, standards-based, and publicly-available. This panel will discuss progress thus far and visions for the future based on lessons learned. The initiative includes: 1) The Patient-Centered CDS Learning Network, which is building a community for engaging patients, clinicians, CDS developers and implementers, professional societies, and other stakeholders; 2) CDS Connect, which is building prototype infrastructure for sharing CDS, including a CDS authoring tool and a national CDS repository; 3) research grants to develop new CDS and to scale existing CDS to new sites and systems; and 4) evaluation. Audience members will learn how the Patient-Centered CDS Learning Network is engaging stakeholders to explore and advance the concept of “patient-centered CDS,” how to contribute and use shareable CDS artifacts through CDS Connect and its repository, about current grants and funding opportunities to move evidence into practice through CDS on a wider scale, and how to participate in the overall initiative.

Learning Objective 1: Apply the Analytic Framework for Action to clinical decision support and quality improvement processes within their organization.

Learning Objective 2: Formulate an approach to incorporating patient preferences and values when developing and implementing clinical decision support.

Learning Objective 3: Access, view, and download clinical decision support artifacts available through CDS Connect.
