AHRQ awarded RTI International a cooperative agreement to become the Patient-Centered Clinical Decision Support Learning Network (PCCDS-LN), which ended in February 2020. The PCCDS-LN provided an online home for researchers, clinicians, professional societies, and others to come together to discuss transforming PCOR findings into clinical decision support. Its main aims were:
- Accelerate collaborative learning opportunities by convening, implementing, and initiating operation of a multi-stakeholder CDS learning network.
- Identify barriers and facilitators to the incorporation of PCOR findings in CDS, and develop recommendations for implementing PCOR findings in clinical workflows via CDS.
- Monitor and measure the dissemination and use of PCOR findings in vendor-based and open source CDS tools, evaluate the effectiveness of the PCCDS-LN, and adapt its activities to increase effectiveness based on these findings.
- Develop a sustainability plan for ongoing operations of the PCCDS-LN.
