Unwarranted variability in care delivery is a key barrier to achieving high-quality healthcare. The most common and dangerous form is “knowledge variability”, which stems from the slow diffusion—17 years for only 14% of new scientific discoveries to find their way into daily practice, and the high-speed doubling of medical knowledge every 73 days. Moreover, increasing digitisation of health records is producing more patient data faster than we can handle. According to International Data Corporation (IDC), global healthcare data is predicted to grow from 153 Exabytes in 2013 to 2314 Exabytes in 2020!

Is your organisation ready for this data deluge? The question to ask ourselves will then be, “How can we support our physicians to make better care decisions by turning all these ‘real-world data’ into actionable knowledge?”

At Elsevier, we design evidence-based care processes, supported by automated clinical information and decision support systems.

This is integrated into clinical workflows via the electronic health record (EHR) that guides clinicians in making the right decisions at every point of care – pushing the right information to the right person at the right time.

CDS adoption is a journey. Wherever you are on this journey, we are happy to help.
