Automating Performance Measures and Clinical Practice Guidelines: Differences and Complementarities. AMIA ... Annual Symposium proceedings. AMIA Symposium Tu, S. W., Martins, S., Oshiro, C., Yuen, K., Wang, D., Robinson, A., Ashcraft, M., Heidenreich, P. A., Goldstein, M. K. 2016; 2016: 1199-1208


Through close analysis of two pairs of systems that implement the automated evaluation of performance measures (PMs) and guideline-based clinical decision support (CDS), we contrast differences in their knowledge encoding and necessary changes to a CDS system that provides management recommendations for patients failing performance measures. We trace the sources of differences to the implementation environments and goals of PMs and CDS.
