Slide notes:CDS systems can have a number of functions in different domains. In the administrative domain, CDS systems can help with billing, coding, referrals, or documentation. These systems can also help to manage complexity by tracking orders, referrals, and preventive care services. They can also assist with cost control measures by monitoring medication orders and avoiding duplicate or unnecessary tests. The classic definition of clinical decision support, however, is a system that supports clinical reasoning promoting the use of best practices. 7
