Abstract

Aim: This review aimed to provide a comprehensive overview of the current state of evidence for the use of clinical dashboards and clinical decision support systems (CDSS) in multidisciplinary teams. Methods: A literature search was performed for the dates 2004-2014 on CINAHL, Medline, Embase, and Cochrane Library. A citation search and a hand search of relevant papers were also conducted. Results: (One hundred and twelve full text papers were retrieved of which 22 were included in the review.) There was considerable heterogeneity in setting, users, and indicators utilized. Information on usability and humancomputer interaction was thoroughly reviewed. There was evidence that dashboards were associated with improved care processes when end-user input was incorporated and information was concurrent, pertinent and intuitive. Conclusion: There is some evidence that implementing clinical dashboards and/or CDSS that provide immediate access to current patient information for clinicians can improve processes and patient outcomes.
