  • Patent number: 10672516
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer-readable media are provided for facilitating clinical decision making by directing the emission of computer-generated health-care related recommendations towards contexts in which the recipient will likely find the recommendations salient and will likely welcome them and act upon them. ‘Uptake’ of computer-generated recommendations for diagnostic tests or therapeutic interventions is thereby substantially increased, and ‘alert fatigue’ is substantially decreased. Embodiments of our technology overcome certain drawbacks associated with the prior art by providing a means for ascertaining which decision-support recommendations are likely to be favorably considered by the recipient and acted-upon (recommendation ‘uptake’). System and method embodiments for providing a predicted probability of user uptake of a context-specific system-generated recommendation patient are disclosed herein and for applying that information to decide whether or not to emit the relevant recommendation.
