September 21, 2023: User Guide Provides Details on Capturing Patient-Centered Clinical Decision Support Implementation Features
Developed by the AHRQ CDSiC Scaling, Measurement, and Dissemination of CDS Workgroup, this user guide provides a standard approach for comprehensively describing how PC CDS is designed, developed, deployed, used, maintained, and evaluated. The user guide is accompanied by the fillable PC CDS Planning, Implementation, and Reporting Checklist, which enables users to describe how each implementation domain was addressed within their PC CDS approach.
September 7, 2023: Report Examines How Patient-Centered Clinical Decision Support Interventions Impact Care Team Workflows and Patient Lifeflows
Developed by the AHRQ CDSiC Scaling, Measurement, and Dissemination of CDS Workgroup, this report summarizes workflow and lifeflow impacts captured in the literature and shares a framework for how PC CDS interventions impact care team workflows and patient lifeflows. It also provides considerations informed by the current evidence base that support CDS researchers, implementers, evaluators, and others in applying these findings to their daily work.
August 29, 2023: Report Provides a Framework for Understanding the Role of Source Credibility in Patient-Centered Clinical Decision Support Tools
Developed by the AHRQ CDSiC Trust and Patient-Centeredness Workgroup, this report provides a framework for individuals engaged in designing and deploying PC CDS to better understand the factors that contribute to credibility in patient-centered clinical decision support. The report shares key strategies for improving source credibility, as well as priority research topics that can address evidence gaps and advance PC CDS.
August 3, 2023: Taxonomy Identifies and Characterizes Patient Preferences Relevant to Patient-Centered Clinical Decision Support
Developed by the AHRQ CDSiC Outcomes and Objectives Workgroup, this taxonomy assesses patient preferences and how developers, evaluators, patient advocates, and organizations looking to advance PC CDS can incorporate patient preferences to inform clinical decision making. The taxonomy can support healthcare organizations in developing workflows to capture patient preference information and configuring PC CDS tools to support care informed by these preferences.
June 7, 2023: Environmental Scan Reveals Opportunities to Evolve Standards and Regulatory Frameworks to Advance Patient-Centered Clinical Decision Support
Developed by the AHRQ CDSiC Standards and Regulatory Frameworks Workgroup, a new environmental scan assesses the current landscape of standards, federal initiatives, and regulatory frameworks for PC CDS to determine gaps, challenges, and opportunities to advance PC CDS. The scan describes 40 opportunities to advance standards for PC CDS in the form of an action plan that can be used by varied stakeholders in the CDS community.
February 3, 2023: New CDSiC Leadership Viewpoint Details the Contributions of the Four Stakeholder Center Workgroups
This CDSiC Leadership Viewpoint provides an overview of the Stakeholder and Community Outreach Center’s four Workgroups, and how the products they are developing will contribute to PC CDS.
September 28, 2022: How Patient-Centered Clinical Decision Support is Serving Postpartum Women
The CDSiC published a vignette describing a patient-centered clinical decision support tool that uses a patient-facing app to help postpartum women report concerning symptoms to their clinicians so that they can work together to monitor potential onset of blood pressure-related issues.
The CDSiC created an infographic to explain the definition of PC CDS, digital tools that have the potential to support patient-centered care by helping clinicians and patients make the best decisions given each individual’s circumstances and preferences. The newly developed infographic describes the four patient-centered factors that are important to incorporate into PC CDS.
