Activity Theoretical Evaluation of a Decision Support System for Dementia Care

Abstract [en]
Clinical decision support systems (CDSS) are developed for the purpose of supporting the user’s cognitive processes and generating a higher quality of medical care. A critical phase in the development process is the implementation of a system into clinical practice. In the view of Activity theory the system will not be complete and meaningful to evaluate until it meets praxis. In the development of a CDSS for dementia care an evaluation was made of a prototype system where general practitioners were observed using the system and interviewed. The results of the evaluation was analyzed according to the framework of Activity theory, in order to obtain a better understanding of reasons for failure and success in the process of implementing a decision support system into clinical practice.
