According to the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, clinical decision support provides clinicians, staff, patients or other individuals with knowledge and person-specific information, intelligently filtered or presented at appropriate times, to enhance health and health care.
At Mayo Clinic there are a range of activities surrounding the development, optimization and implementation of clinical decision support tools.
