Partners R&D group launches CDS survey
The Clinical Informatics Research and Development group at Partners HealthCare Systems (PHS) in Boston is conducting a clinical decision support (CDS) survey to assess opinions on the state of current and future CDS.

This survey is broken into the following five sections:
              1. Development and implementation of CDS content
              2. CDS services
              3. CDS quality measures
              4. Funding and sponsoring CDS activities
              5. CDS consortium value proposition

“We estimate that the survey should take up to twenty (20) minutes to fill out. Answers will remain anonymous when the results are compiled,” according to PHS. “De-identified summary results of this survey will be communicated back to the respondents upon request and published in a peer reviewed publication."

PHS also noted this survey has gained institutional review board approval.
