Unit 3: Implementing Clinical Decision Support (VistA Demo)

This unit discusses implementing clinical decision support, which broadly refers to providing clinicians or patients with computer-generated clinical knowledge and patient related information, intelligently filtered and presented at appropriate times, to enhance patient care. A short lecture is followed by a series of hands-on lab exercises through which students will learn how to configure and use three tools for decision support implemented in the EHR: Alerts or Notifications, Order Checks and Clinical Reminders.
