CDSiC & Researchers

Patient-centered clinical decision support (PC CDS) is an exciting and emerging area of study. While new findings are being published every day, researchers have many opportunities to learn more about how to develop, implement, and use PC CDS as well as how to improve it.

Through the CDSiC, researchers can explore published research and current CDSiC projects and products that aim to advance the field of PC CDS across the healthcare landscape. Researchers can use this information to guide their own work, make new discoveries, and find new collaborators that will contribute to the transformation of both healthcare delivery and research. Examples of resources that researchers can find through the CDSiC include peer-reviewed articles, literature scans, measures, frameworks, and other tools.
