  • Reducing Diagnostic Errors Through Clinical Decision Support

    Physicians have long approached diagnoses as a mixture of art and science. CDS is a means to bolster the science portion by providing a broader clinical view of the patient, including clinical details from ambulatory EMRs and the systems of labs, radiology departments, and more combined with evidence-based best practices. CDS systems operate mainly in the background of an EMR, monitoring clinical documentation as it is being entered, and issue alerts when information, often not available at the point of care, suggests a different course of action. In certain instances, these alerts can mean the difference between a timely and accurate diagnosis and a potentially dangerous diagnostic error.

Document Management Systems (DMS) are computer systems and software used to store and track documents captured through the use of a document scanner in an electronic format. These systems are sometimes incorrectly referred to as content management systems, which they do share some overlap with or enterprise content management (ECM) systems, which they are actually just a component of. Document Management Systems often deal with digital asset management, document imaging, workflow systems, and records management as part of a complete ECM system.

Document management systems commonly provide storage, versioning, metadata, and security as well as providing indexing and retrieval capabilities.  Other features include document capture, advanced security measures, workflow, collaboration, searching, publishing, and reproduction.

Government regulations require many industries to track and control their documents, including the Healthcare industry. Document Manage Systems provide evidence of document control and tracking that can be used to verify compliance with these government regulations.
