Clinical Decision Support in Pediatric Care
The overall aim of the studies described in this thesis was to investigate and optimize the diagnostic process of (febrile) children presenting to the hospital emergency department (ed), and to study aspects of this process as a base for clinical decision support systems. We discussed the use of an electronic medical record with structured data entry, the development of clinical prediction rules for specific diagnostic problems in febrile children attending the hospital ed, the validity of a triage system used for pediatric patients, and the evaluation of a clinical decision support system for diagnostic management of children with fever without apparent source.
