Clinical Decision Support Key to Meaningful Use Stage 3

 | 

Stage 3 Meaningful Use standards may still be up in the air, but clinical decision support (CDS) seems likely to be one of the most important components. Victor Lee, MD and vice president of clinical informatics at Zynx Health, recently shared his thoughts about Stage 3’s CDS intervention requirements with Healthcare IT News.

"It's an area that is sometimes misunderstood, and people have more flexibility to meet the requirement than they think," he told the publication. "Stage 1 only required one CDS rule, but Stages 2 and 3 recognize different forms beyond just rules, like order sets, interdisciplinary sets of care, templates and other things to help make decisions."
