  • Defining outcome improvement opportunities and baselines
  • Setting up interventions in key clinical information systems and for specific targets
  • Deploying CDS interventions to optimize acceptance and value
  • Measuring results and refining the program

An appendix includes information on the use of CDS for prescription safety in the small practice environment.
