Figure 3

The overview of the general clinical pathway as well as the intervention points of cognitive computing-based CDSS. Throughout the clinical path, cognitive computing-based CDSS provides various functions for clinical decision-making. For example, consultation support guides physicians when inquiring with patients by suggesting questions to physicians. Voice medical record frees physicians’ hands by automatically recording and translating physicians’ voice data into the texts in EMR documents. Diagnostic suggestion shows the likelihood of the most probable diseases that the patient suffers according to clinical notes.
