Clinical Decision Support Rule

Use clinical decision support to improve performance on high-priority health conditions. 

1. Implement five clinical decision support interventions related to four or more clinical quality measures at a relevant point in patient care for the entire EHR reporting period. Absent four clinical quality measures related to an eligible hospital or CAH’s patient population, the clinical decision support interventions must be related to high-priority health conditions. It is suggested that one of the five clinical decision support interventions be related to improving healthcare efficiency.

2. The eligible hospital or CAH has enabled the functionality for drug-drug and drug-allergy interaction checks for the entire EHR reporting period.
