Kaiser Permanente is developing clinical decision support (CDS) applications that automate real-time decision services using IBM ODM. Well-designed decision services can replace existing guideline documents in all areas of its business. Guidelines are expensive to develop as they involve significant investment from SMEs. Even good guidelines are of limited use for real-time decision-making, especially if the decisions are fluid, specialized and complex. KP is adopting decision modeling with the DMN standard to replace guideline documents. Our decision models and tables are encapsulated as decision services and deployed in real-time IBM ODM applications. This talk will describe two scenarios that demonstrate this pioneering technique.
