Summary
  • Decision support is a new "buzz word" in the health care industry. It is defined as any approach used to obtain and present information necessary for decision makers. Decision support systems (DSS) provide interfacing of business operations with office support, modeling, and number-crunching. The two key issues in DSS are: data management, and acquisition of delivery systems. Data management considers such factors as: data integrity, data access, redundancy identification and control, data definition consistency, and the ability to link resident data from several different systems. Successful implementation of DSS should involve forming a planning committee, and considering the DSS a separately funded entity. With increasing competition and tightening budgets, DSS is touted as a vital tool for ensuring corporate survival in the health care industry.
