Traditional forms of communicating best practice disease state management do not adequately supportappropriate prescribing in patients with complex needs, such as those with multi-morbidities or agedpatients. An effective solution is the use of clinical decision support systems; however, currentlyavailable systems do not meet the needs of health professionals (HPs). We wished to evaluate whetherHPs find the way in which an early-stage prototype delivers information is useful; however, duringprototype development, articles defining fundamental elements of clinical decision support systems(CDSS) success, process model and data requirements were found to be widely dispersed and lacking.We describe a new CDSS prototype for healthcare information delivery tailored for health professionalusing the identified fundamental elements for success. Concepts described in this article could be usedto as the foundation for other CDSS and to inform electronic medical record design.
