Abstract

Clinical decision support systems, when used effectively, can improve the quality of care. However, such systems can malfunction, and these malfunctions can be difficult to detect. In this poster, we describe four methods of detecting and resolving issues with clinical decision support: 1) statistical anomaly detection, 2) visual analytics and dashboards, 3) user feedback analysis, 4) taxonomization of failure modes/effects.
