Implementing CDS Interventions
The fundamental goal of any CDS is to drive changes in care delivery that will improve care processes and outcomes by adhering to agreed-upon best practices and guidelines. The CDS does so by providing interventions into care delivery; the manner in which these CDS interventions are provided into the care process is critical to successfully meeting the institution’s goals to improve cost, patient safety, and outcomes.
