Scoping review on clinical decision support systems accepted for publication

The integration of clinical decision support systems for pharmacogenomic testing into clinical routine has been investigated by the MIRACUM consortium over the last nine months. This joint effort has now resulted in a scoping literature review accepted by BMC Medical Informatics and Decision Making. A total of 12 authors from nine MIRACUM sites provide an overview of the designs of user-system interactions in recent system developments. The final analysis comprises the essence of 32 articles that were identified in a PubMed search. As the most widespread tool, alerts have been identified, next to pharmacogenomic reports, inbox messages, and several more. The authors conclude that i) further evaluation efforts of developed prototypes will be necessary and ii) in the future clinical decision support systems will include prediction models to identify eligible patients for pre-emptive genotyping.
