1. This week we learned about the potential benefits and drawbacks to clinical decision support systems (CDSSs). Create a “Pros” versus “Cons” table with a column for “Pro” and a separate column for “Con”. Include at least 3 items for each column. Next to each item, provide a brief rationale as to why you included it on the respective list. PROS RATIONALE CONS RATIONALE Reducing clinical variation and duplicative testing Alert providers to available information they may not have seen By reducing clinical variation, duplicate and unnecessary test will ensure patient safety. Providers ordering duplicate testing can over expose patients to radiation depending on the test. CDSS also has tools that go through enormous amounts of data and will catch potential problems and will alert providers of information. “Alert Fatigue” The amount of alerts providers receive can cause “alert fatigue” causing them to overlook the importance of the alerts from becoming desensitized from the alerts.
