Through the combination of clinical expertise, research, and patient values evidence-based practice (EBP) is becoming the new standard of patient care. Despite the main benefits of EBP medical providers are hesitant to implement based on a multitude of barriers. In order to increase adoption of EBP we need to develop deliver systems that bring best evidence in an easy to use format to the bedside.

We tested the implementation of a computerized clinical decision support documentation platform during trauma team resuscitations. The simulation sessions were geared to help identify opportunities for improvement in our implementation methodology.

During the simulation sessions an improvement in care was not identified in comparison to previous in situ simulation sessions. We did identify several opportunities to improve patient care through the use of disruptive alerts, additional training, and a time period for familiarization with the product.
