KLAS Report Discusses Vendors' Struggles, Opportunities in Providing Clinical Decision Support

January 16, 2014 — Providers report that despite vendor efforts, clinical decision support (CDS) reference products are still not integrated enough to deliver the strategic direction providers are looking for. This and other findings are revealed in the latest KLAS report, “Clinical Decision Support 2013: Sizing Up Point-of-Care Reference Tools.” 
    
"Providers acknowledged the impact the tools are having and the efforts some vendors are making to leverage strategic partnerships but declared that most products offered are still too much in silos," said Adam Cherrington, report author. "Providers were very quick to mention the efforts of EBSCO, Elsevier, Wolters Kluwer, Truven Health Analytics and others to align with their needs, but even though providers appreciated the high performance of most solutions, they felt that more portfolio integration would result in even greater impacts on patient care." 
 
The report focused on four groups of CDS tools: disease reference, drug reference, nursing reference and diagnostic decision support. As part of the report, KLAS interviewed providers about the impact of these tools on patient care, usability, perceived value and workflow.
