This course will begin with an overview of Clinical Information System (CIS) in healthcare and take the learners through the different types of CIS in practice.
The course will then focus on Clinical Decision Support System (CDSS) as a specific type of CIS. With the context of CDSS, learners will learn about the key considerations in the different stages of CIS development including design, implementation and evaluation. As the course progresses, learners will be able to analyse how CDSS assist human-decision making and lead to improved care outcomes.
