The Innovation Center is the research hub for the Clinical Decision Support Innovation Collaborative (CDSiC) and is comprised of two Cores: 1) Measurement and Value of Clinical Decision Support (CDS) and 2) Conducting and Coordinating CDS Projects. Through these two Cores, the Innovation Center: facilitates real-world patient-centered clinical decision support (PC CDS) measurement and testing projects; improves CDS usability by identifying best practices for design and implementation; and advances the translation of patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR) into clinical practice using CDS to improve patient and clinician decision making.
The Innovation Center provides a unique opportunity to demonstrate, test, and advance novel PC CDS projects that align with the PC CDS lifecycle, which describes the process for translating PCOR into CDS, and that incorporate the CDS Five Rights: the right information, to the right people, in the right format, through the right channel, at the right time.
The Innovation Center has established two Cores that engage stakeholders, including clinicians, informaticians, researchers, payers, and patients, in designing and conducting projects that address the key challenges to widespread use of PC CDS. The Cores will also provide guidance and frameworks for measuring CDS use and effectiveness.
The Measurement and Value of CDS Core works to standardize the measurement of all aspects of CDS, guided by the principles of the CDS Five Rights. The research projects of this Core will identify and develop measurement concepts and frameworks for the entire CDS lifecycle. The Conducting and Coordinating CDS Projects Core implements PC CDS in real-world settings, tests new ideas, and identifies best practices for PC CDS implementation to address the complexities and challenges faced during last-mile implementation.
The Innovation Center and Core activities are guided by a Planning Committee that meets regularly to support coordination of the two Cores, provide input on key decisions, and ensure the Cores are informed by and aligned with the broader field of CDS development and implementation.
