About this book

Building on the success of the 1998 edition, Clinical Decision Support Systems: Theory and Practice, Second Edition, once again brings together worldwide experts to illustrate the underlying science and day-to-day use of decision support systmes in clinical and educational settings.

 Writes the editor, "If used properly, CDSS have the potential to change the way medicine has been taught and practiced."  As clinical decision support systems (CDSS) gain an increasingly central role in the delivery of high quality health care, it becomes more important for the health care community to understand their use.  This text is designed as a resource for practicing clinicians, informaticians, teachers and students alike, and provides the most current, comprehensive look a the development and evaluation of clinical decision support systems.

 Topics discussed include:

-Mathematical Foundations of Decision Support Systems

-Design and Implementation Issues

-Ethical and Legal Issues in Decision Support

-Clinical Trials of Information Interventians

-Hospital-Based Decision Support

-Real World Case Studies 

Eta S. Berner, EdD, is a Professor of Health Informatics at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

"The author has three objectives: to provide a technical resource about CDSS for information specialists; a textbook for students in medical informatics programs, and a resource for clinicians interested in CDSS. … the citations are very helpful and serve almost as a recommended reading list for the topic. This book is especially well suited for students in health informatics who are interested in designing and developing clinical decision support systems. It provides an excellent overview with suitable references for continued learning." (Keri L. Christensen, Doody's Review Service, November, 2007)
