Cognitive Computing-Based CDSS in Medical Practice

Figure 4

The demonstration of cognitive computing-based CDSS developed by Baidu. When a physician submits the clinical document in the EMR system, CDSS perceives the data and provides clinical decision support according to the stage that the physician is in. When illness description (e.g., chief complaint and history of present illness) is entered but the diagnosis is empty, CDSS provides diagnostic suggestions and highlights the symptoms or vitals matched from the suggested diagnosis to the contents of EMR. After physician enters a (list of) diagnosis, CDSS detects whether there is misdiagnosis or missed diagnosis and explains why it is very likely a misdiagnosis. The alert will disappear only when no misdiagnosis or missed diagnosis is detected at all. Then, the treatment recommendation will be given on the correct diagnosis.
