About this talk

HSJ invites you to view and participate in an exclusive webinar on the growing importance of clinical decision support systems in association with UpToDate. Quality, cost and the rise in long term conditions are forcing all healthcare providers around the world to reassess how services can be delivered more efficiently and effectively. Most have concluded that whilst technology is not the only answer, it is invariably part of the solution. One key area is becoming increasingly clear – clinical support systems. Whilst healthcare provision has always striven to deliver the right care at the right time, it is now more crucial than ever that the clinical decision making process results in the best outcome for the patient in the shortest possible timescale. In addition, recent changes to the regulatory environment (such as non-payment for patient readmission within 30 days of treatment) look set to increase the pressure even further. Some of the key questions our webinar will explore include: - The economic impact of adopting clinical decision support systems. -Can clinical decision support systems contribute to reduced complications, length of stay and re-admission rates? -How can IT-enabled clinical support systems work to improve patient care? -Who is currently using clinical decision support systems and how are they measuring outcomes? -In what ways can the health service use technology to transform patient management? -Do clinical decision support systems really change clinical decision-making?
