In order to build a clinical information system (CIS) that improves patient care, it’s important that clinicians, clinical and operational experts, leaders and patients continue to contribute to the Connect Care Clinical System Design (CSD) process by developing clinical content – the CIS documentation, decision and inquiry support tools.
The Connect Care Executive Committee discussed and was supportive of a CSD mapping guide, which outlines how various CSD tasks are allocated to specific oversight groups. Core CSD affects most clinical areas and is largely handled by clinical documentation and clinical decision support committees. Specialty CSD addresses more specific needs and is mostly handled by Connect Care Area Councils. The mapping guide will evolve as our experience with CSD decisions grows.
The specialty mapping guide, and a wealth of other design information, can be found in the CSD Handbook, available in all committees and councils collaborative workspaces.
