Why ArdoCARE as a collaborative medical decision support system?
Regardless the field of activity, decision makers face the same challenge – dealing with the massive amounts of data they rely their decisions on.
Decision Support Systems (DSS) provide decision-makers with functionalities to exploit various information on which to build a basis for making decisions. In the medical industry, specialized DSS are increasingly used to support physicians in making clinical decisions, thus helping to improve the medical services. The presented architecture makes use of Electronic Health Record (EHR) combined with available technologies and standards, clinical databases and specialized knowledge bases. In the paper, it is presented a specialized DSS that answers the needs of the health system.
That is why a decision-making support tool like ArdoCARE is a requisite in any activity or industry, all the more so in medicine where short intervention time is sometimes lifesaving.
