Clinical decision support: Leveraging health information technology Standards to improve outcomes

In this talk, Dr. Jenders will survey the state of the art and science regarding HIT standards that are applicable to CDS. In this analysis of the standards landscape, he will emphasize those standards concerning knowledge representation and delivery as well as convey the latest developments regarding these standards and related efforts to develop new standards.

Dr Robert A. Jenders broadly addresses in his research the domain of clinical decision support (CDS), with a focus on knowledge representation and health information technology (HIT) standards in the context of electronic health record systems. A native of Milwaukee, Wisconsin USA, he received his undergraduate degree in computer science from Marquette University; completed his MD degree and did his medical residency at the University of Wisconsin-Madison; earned a master’s degree in computer science at Northeastern University; and completed a postdoctoral fellowship in biomedical informatics at Harvard University and the Massachusetts General Hospital. Outside of his home institutions, Dr. Jenders has served since 1998 as co-chair of the clinical decision support work group of Health Level Seven International (HL7), the principal international standards development organization for health information technology.
