Optimal health and healthcare requires the use of electronic health record systems (EHRs) that provide an integrated view of all data relevant to a patient, a comprehensive care plan, and decision support. Today’s EHRs fall short in many respects. The Health IT Innovation Collaborative (HII-C) initiative provides a testbed for developing knowledge-driven apps that address these needs in an open, interoperable framework. An app for managing chronic disease patients is the driving use case for current efforts.

Learning Objective 1: To learn about technical desgin flaws present in current electronic health records, understand why these flaws remain, and how we plan to address them.

Learning Objective 2: To understand the requirements necessary for clinical decision support systems to operate effectively based on the clinical environments they are used in, and learn what the successful implementation of a clinical decision support system is capable of.
