Cardiovascular Disease: Clinical Decision-Support Systems (CDSS)
Description of Resource:
The Community Preventive Services Task Force recommends clinical decision-support systems (CDSS) for prevention of cardiovascular disease (CVD) based on evidence of effectiveness in improving screening for CVD risk factors and practices for CVD-related preventive care services, clinical tests, and treatments. CDSS are computer-based information systems designed to assist health care providers in implementing clinical guidelines at the point of care. CDSS use patient data to provide tailored patient assessments and evidence-based treatment recommendations for health care providers to consider.
