Current Issues and Future Trends of Clinical Decision Support Systems (CDSS)
The cost of healthcare is increasing exponentially worldwide. The adoption and diffusion of e-health and the application of Internet and Communication Technology (ICT) in healthcare is growing at a rapid rate in an attempt to find cost effective methods of providing quality healthcare. Both European and US governments are making e-health a priority on their agendas. However, few, if any, discuss the critical issues of the sustainability and feasibility of e-health models. We attempt to fill this critical void by presenting a macro framework that identifies the key components of a generic e-health system and identifying factors playing a role in the assessment of e-health sustainability.
