NICE to assess the feasibility of evaluating computerised decision support systems

2005/014 NICE to assess the feasibility of evaluating computerised decision support systems

The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE or ‘the Institute’) is working with Connecting for Health (CfH, formerly the National Programme for Information Technology) to undertake a pilot study to develop and pilot methods for evaluating computerised decision support systems (CDSS).

This seems like a very sensible idea as CDSS are likely to become as significant to patient care as any medication or surgical procedure, however it will be interesting to see whether the evaluation methods currently in use are seen as being suitable for this sort of intervention.
