Clinical decision support (CDS) seeks to deliver the right information at the right time in an easily digestible format to assist clinical decision-making. CDS helps to optimize treatment plans, improve the safety of prescribing, and provide personalized care by enabling providers and patients to make informed decisions. Even though it's typically thought of as software embedded in electronic health record (EHR) systems, CDS is more than just a technology intervention—it also involves policy considerations and process changes that impact organizations, providers, and patients.
Implementing CDS effectively requires operational and behavioral changes to incorporate the best available clinical evidence into decision-making.

The widespread adoption of wearable technology over the past decade has significantly strengthened the ability of individuals, clinicians, and researchers to understand and intervene in many aspects of personal and population health.
Study sponsors, researchers, and clinicians are increasingly interested in collecting data from wearable devices; however, two primary challenges exist. First, there is a deficit in the expertise and technology infrastructure to incorporate wearable devices into current research programs. Additionally, when wearables’ data are collected, there is no way to manage and analyze the information in a meaningful way because of a lack of standardization.
RTI International can help you with these challenges. Our experts conduct research into the reliability and validity of wearable products and provide guidance and technical support to plan and implement studies that use wearables for data collection, to manage pilot and demonstration programs, and to monitor and evaluate efforts that ensure wearable devices generate trusted and actionable data.

The capacity to meet basic social needs - such as stable housing, food, utilities, and transportation - can affect individuals' health, their access to and utilization of health care, and health equity across the board. Moreover, failure to address these health-related social needs (HRSNs) can increase the total cost of care and diminish the quality of care.

Estimate the effects of selecting a narrow provider network on outpatient utilization and outpatient out-of-pocket (OOP) expenditures among individuals who chose to enroll in a narrow network plan in 2014.
Physician-targeted prescription drug advertisements sometimes include price comparisons between products that may misleadingly imply equivalence of efficacy and safety or misrepresent true savings, suggesting the potential utility of a context statement to explain what the claims do and do not mean.
