PURPOSE: Real time drug therapy optimization, with minimal adversities is essential in the critical care environment. Clinical Decision Support System (CDSS), an electronic clinical surveillance system is a data mining tools which feed real-time ADT (Admission, Discharge, and Transfer) laboratory, pharmacy, radiology, and surgery data. The system processes these data, based on pre-defined rules to detect changes in patients’ conditions in real-time, then flags clinical alerts. Real-time critical alerts can be utilized by physicians and pharmacists in optimizing care and minimizing adverse events.
