Hello Professor and Class,1.This week we learned about the potential benefits and drawbacks to clinical decisionsupport 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.ProsRationaleVaccination and Preventative Care remindersCDSS can alert the provider that the patient isdue for their annua vaccinations and also remind the provider that the patient is due for preventative care annual appointment. By reminding the provider this help remind the patient to get their annual vaccinations to prevent health issues or hospitalization this is the same for preventative care.Medication errors or interactions preventionThis is great for healthcare providers because it will alert them if there is a drug interaction with other prescribed medication or if it’s a pediatric patient it will alert when a dosage is wrong to prevent a medication error.Unnecessary testing or duplicate testing prevention The system will alert the providers that test for this patient was ordered previously to prevent repeat testing especially if a patient left against medication advice but returned within a few hours. Instead of repeating test the provider can review the results and repeat if necessary.
