The goals of improving quality and safety of health care are the major drivers for computer-based clinical decision support. Successful use of computers and information technology in the health care setting requires a thorough understanding of their limitations and advantages. This unique work presents a state-of-the-art examination of the derivation and application of medical knowledge to clinical decision support, focusing on approaches that may be integrated into information systems and delivered at the point of care for providers, or directly to patients at point of need. Among its unique features is the inclusion of case studies that review lessons learned from both successful and unsuccessful projects.
