CholGate - The Effect of Alerting Versus on Demand Computer Based Decision Support on Treatment of Dyslipidaemia by General Practitioners

2014-08-27 03:43:37 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Indirect evidence show alerting physicians with clinical decision support systems (CDSS) seem to change behaviour more than requiring users to actively initiate the system. However, randomized trials comparing these methods in a clinical setting are lacking. In this study we compare the effect of Alerting physicians with a CDSS or actively requiring initiation of CDSS on the adherence of Dutch general practitioners to the Cholesterol guideline of the Dutch college of General Practitioners.

Description

Indirect evidence show alerting physicians with clinical decision support systems (CDSS) seem to change behaviour more than requiring users to actively initiate the system. However, randomized trials comparing these methods in a clinical setting are lacking. In this study we compare the effect of Alerting physicians with a CDSS or actively requiring initiation of CDSS on the adherence of Dutch general practitioners to the Cholesterol guideline of the Dutch college of General Practitioners, using a clinical decsion support system called CholGate. This system has the functionality to provide both Alerting and On-Demand decision support. Users are free to negate the advise provided by the decision support system. The trial will have a cluster randomized structure.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Computer-based information systems used to integrate clinical and patient information and provide support for decision-making in patient care.

Information systems, usually computer-assisted, that enable providers to initiate medical procedures, prescribe medications, etc. These systems support medical decision-making and error-reduction during patient care.

Computer-based systems that enable management to interrogate the computer on an ad hoc basis for various kinds of information in the organization, which predict the effect of potential decisions.

Mathematical or statistical procedures used as aids in making a decision. They are frequently used in medical decision-making.

Mental fatigue experienced by health care providers who encounter numerous alerts and reminders from the use of CLINICAL DECISION SUPPORT SYSTEMS. As the numbers of alerts and reminders designed to provide meaningful assistance to the patient care process increases, many health personnel may ignore them.
