Smarter Decisions, Better Care: Can Clinical Decision Support Technology Improve Patient Safety?

Hosted by the Health Service Journal, a panel of medical experts examines the role that clinical decision support (CDS) can play in increasing patient safety. CDS is a key element of health informatics strategy in acute and primary care, refocusing hospital IT from being a mere replacement for paper processes, to point-of-care systems that can support clinicians to improve patient safety. Key elements of the webinar include:

  • The role for CDS technology in the A&E setting
  • Experience of using CDS in training and education of junior doctors
  • The body of evidence around the impact of CDS on patient safety
