Clinical Decision Support​

Clinical Decision Support (CDS) is a category of software that assists doctors and other healthcare providers with important diagnostic and treatment decisions for patients. The use of CDS can increase diagnostic accuracy, reduce unnecessary testing and treatments, and increase the quality and safety of healthcare.

For more than a decade, the Usability Lab at the Northwell Health Center for Health Innovations and Outcomes Research (CHIOR) has been developing, testing, validating, and evaluating CDS tools and systems.
