In December 2016 CDC issued a Request for Information related to clinical decision support (CDS). Specifically, CDC was, “…seeking input on the most important areas of focus, the stakeholders who are or should be part of the effort, and depictions of the current state of CDS development and implementation, including detailed descriptions of the individual components that impact effectiveness and the process of CDS development, particularly in those areas where the responder to this RFI has specific expertise.”

In HLN’s response we answered CDC’s questions largely based on our experience with ICE and RCKMS. These projects involve significant engagement between public health and the clinical and vendor communities and represent significant experience to leverage open source solutions more broadly.
